The ladies of Hove appear to be taking full advantage of this sudden heat wave in and have dug out their hot pants which managed to get stuck at the back of their wardrobes during the prolonged winter. However, hot pants are not only reserved for everyday wear, you can also wear them out for a glam evening event. These jazzy evening hot pants have been dubbed ‘posh pants‘ by fashionistas, and they are fabulous if you want to look modern and sexy on a night out.
What are hot pants?
Hot pants were launched in London by Mary Quant in the 1960’s and grew in popularity during the 1970’s on the disco dance floor. Hot pants can be typically defined as short shorts and are generally shorter than a mini skirt (but unlike the mini skirt, it has the bonus of not riding up too high and staying in place!).
What’s the difference between hot pants and ‘posh pants’?
Hot pants are generally worn throughout a sunny day and are more casual, whereas posh pants are more elegant, stylish and chic. They are usually more jazzy than your everyday hot pants being sequinned and or sparkly!
