Granny Panties as Outerwear: The Latest Spring Trend!

WhoWhatWearTake a look at what showed up in my inbox.

According to WhoWhatWear, hot pants are a big trend for spring.


And I'm not talking about mere "short shorts" here.

I'm talking about what essentially looks like granny panties. That you wear out in public.


It looks strange enough on the spring runways, but check out Zoe Kravitz in a pair, out on the streets.

I just can't embrace this trend. To me, it looks like she forgot to put on pants.

What do you think?

The style mavens at WhoWhatWear are thrilled with the trend, writing, "Whether you opt to style them with a sophisticated button-up a la Jason Wu or over opaque tights like Zoe Kravitz, we can assure you this is an of-the-moment trend for fashion thrill-seekers!"

They go on to rhapsodize over a pair of $865 hot pants by Jason Wu, an $877 pair of hot pants by Dolce

I still maintain that the Fashion Gods of the world gather in a secret penthouse in Milan, Paris, or New York once a year and contemplate "What ridiculousness can we pull on the unsuspecting public this year so we can laugh hysterically at them?" :-)

Maybe in the bedroom, but absolutely not in public.

Why don't they just legalize public nudity and be done with it. Sooo many women today wear more fabric in their underwear (as long as they ARE wearing any) than they do in their "stylish" swimsuits. Now it looks like some women will be choosing to walk around in what looks like underwear only ANYWAY. Just throw it all out the window and call it a day.

If I had better thighs, I might consider it. I have great legs, and no cellulite. But I DO have baggy inner thighs, from weight loss.

Idk, maybe I wouldn't. Maybe I just want to, because I CAN'T, since my thighs would rub together and chafe

I would never look good in that.

Thats actually a cute outfit...if your going to a the beach or pool party

No. No, no, no, no.


If I'd become a famous singer like I'd aspired to as a kid, hell yes I'd rock these!

But as a sahm, I'll keep my trouser jeans on :-)
