The fashion scene sizzles this summer. The style connoisseurs have spoken about the shorts trends women can look forward to this summer. Experts at Fashionizing.com say, “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.” In fact, today’s style is akin to wearing lingerie as outerwear.
The spring and summer style trends further reiterates “lingerie as an outerwear” option. The hot pants resembles an underwear, women generally used as sleepwear. For a classic look however, you can opt for the vintage denim shorts. Pair it with bohemian tops, and you’re all set with the rocking style.
Seeking inspiration from hot pants, the boy shorts have a similar “cut”; the only difference is the “hemline” that does not curve up the body, say the fashion gurus at Fashionising.com. Women can opt for loose tap pants, preferably in lace or semi-sheer material. Comfortable than the tight and the figure hugging hot pants and boy shorts, tap pants are for the equally intrepid.
