Watching the awards ceremonies this week and checking out the outfits, it seems that something the Baby Boomers started has come full circle – but only thanks to the demure, clean, crisp style of Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift has, in my opinion, single-handedly brought back the hot pant this week…so today we’re going to enjoy her efforts then look back at your own 60s and 70s hot pants style for where it might go from here…

Whilst other Hollywood Starlets have worn them here and there, Taylor’s style and sexiness took me right back to the early pictures of my mum and my mother-in-law at their weddings and in their beautiful youthfully short hot pants and I know it will do the same for you.
