With winter finally over, the time to hit the gym has come. It's this Spring or in few more months the Summer. Hemlines have crept up to shorter than short; in fact reaching the negative. Hot pants, boy shorts, and tap pants are all variations on this shorter-than-short style, which in many cases reveal more than just one's legs.
Once upon a time hot pants were considered more suited to a gymnasium than the streets. But then, in late 2007, the leotard came back into fashion. While it didn't peak on the streets until 2009, and was often worn under skirts, shorts or long furs, in the case of Kate Moss, its prevalence guaranteed that hot pants would indeed be worn by forward thinking fashioners.
And so there it was on the Spring 2010 catwalks. And again in the front row. Always on the confident personality. Always on a great figure. Those two latter parts are key to this fashion trend. It is not for the faint of heart, nor those who aren't confident about their figure.
