Shants go short: Cordelia Animal Hotpant at Boohoo

Cordelia Animal HotpantYes, they’re sheer. Yes, they’re animal print. Yes, they’re hotpants. Nope, they’re not underwear.

They will neither keep you warm nor cover your modesty – both characteristics we look for when choosing clothing we plan to wear out in public…

On the plus side, these babies retail at a measly £12, leaving you plenty of cash to splash on a second pair of hotpants or even leggings to wear underneath! Available from

    I quite like the print, although I think it would work better on something like a scarf rather than on a pair of shorts.

    As lingerie, they are OK. They’re cheap enough to be something you get, but can wear around the house, but not in public.
    that still does not excuse the fact that they are meant to be worn in public….
