Short Cuts

Cheeky hotpants are having a moment-get set to show some leg.

 

Who wears short shorts? Well, there’s Kelly Bundy, of course, and the busty model in Warrant’s “Cherry Pie” video. But, you might want to whip out your old Thighmaster, because as of this season, the answer will likely include you. Thanks to appearances
on the runways of Balenciaga, Jason Wu and Dolce & Gabbana, retro hotpants are being hyped as an essential. Luckily, their cuts are slightly less skimpy than in decades past, and looking current includes countering their abbreviated hemlines with tailored blazers or feminine button-ups—rather than black fishnets and belly-baring bustiers. In other words, like everything else these days, they’d look ridiculous if worn on the hood of a car. Some trends should never come back…
