{Fashion Monday} Black Hot Pants 

Black hot pants are my new must have pants or shorts as we call them here, in my summer wardrobe. I can not remember a time I didn’t have black hot pants in wardrobe. Every shopping trip I do, I always check out the black hot pants each store has. I own a couple from Primark, from New Look and from H& M and all have saved me right.

Traveling frequently, I need clothes that I can always count on and for me black hot pants are exactly that. When I am in Seoul, they are the best for clubbing. Recently I was in Copenhagen, they were my go to for all the touring I did. I always ensure I pack them wherever I am going except if it’s winter time at my destination.

How many black hot pants should you have?

There is always a question of how many one should own. I personally think as many as your laundry basket can fit. Frequent readers know I am always on the go every weekend, and it’s not always possible for me to do my laundry during the week. So it makes sense for me to have a couple of black hot pants just lying around for my next adventure.

Styling Hot Pants

In terms of styling hot pants, I think they are the easiest to dress up or down. When I am traveling, I like to pair my hot pants with trainers. A simple colourful top, a crossover bag and a nice light cardigan always does the trick. Sometimes I like to pair the hot pants with open toed sandals, lately it’s been this favourite stripped pair from Primark.

There lots of people who shy away from wearing hot pants because, they don’t like how they look in them. They don’t like how there legs and thighs look whilst wearing them. And some just don’t give two cents about hot pants. But for those who would like to wear hot pants, here are some of my tips.

Tips of styling Hot Pants

  • Long tops – If you don’t appreciate showing off a piece of your butt, then wear a long top to cover your behind. My hot pants hardly show any ass so I don’t always wear long tops
  • Colourful top – Hot pants aim to attract attention to your behind but if you want the focus to be somewhere else, then try wear colourful eye popping tops.
  • Dress them up – you can dress hot pants with a cute top and a pair of nice heels or wedges.
  • Dress them down – I prefer to dress my hot pants down, so I am always wearing them with trainers or open toed sandals
  • Make them work for you – the idea with hot pants is to look sexy effortlessly, so choose your poison – tight or loose. I like mine tight to show off my back side but I do own a couple which are loose and with them I pair with leggings on a cool day.

There you have it, a couple of cool tips for styling your hot pants. How do you style yours? Do you like hot pants?

    I actually have a few Pairs of Denim Shorts, but no black pants I am afraid. Predominantly because I am not a black colour lover. You sound like you really like yours Anosa 🙂

    I usually go with loose whenever I’m not sure of my mood for the day, or where I’m going. That said, I think I can apply a few of those tips for my own style.

    I have a similar pair of hot pants that I wear a lot, but mainly around the house. I don’t want to blind anyone with my pale white legs, so in public I wear either leggings or dress pants.

    • August 9, 2016 / 7:51 pm

      Awww bless you, I am blessed with some lovely legs

  19. August 9, 2016 / 6:03 pm

    If I look into my closest a majority of the color of my pants are black. Interestingly enough I do not have a hot pants style. Might get those when I lose weight haha! 🙂

    I only ever wear hotpants at festivals or on holiday, I’m not quite brave enough to wear them regularly!

    • August 9, 2016 / 7:53 pm

    The hot pants would be great my nieces for sure. The open toe sandals look good with the hot pants and I love how you can dress them up or down. Thanks for sharing these cute opinions with the hot pants.

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:02 am

    They look fab with longer tops.
    I used to wear hot pants many moons ago, but since having the kiddies, no chance 🙂

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:03 am

    I wear a ton of black. It’s effortlessly easy and chic so I own a couple pairs of these.

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:15 am

      Same here

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:03 am

    I’m not a hot pants type of body gal! But I like your tips none the less–long colorful tops would be the way to go in my opinion

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:15 am

      Thanks Kathleen

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:04 am

    I don’t own any hot pants as I don’t feel as though they would suit my shape but I would definitely wear them if they would! I love the tips youve shared; a colourful top is a great idea xxx

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:16 am

      Thanks Laura

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:04 am

      Thanks Laura

  31. August 9, 2016 / 3:38 am

    I down own any but my four year old owns about five pair. Because she hasn’t mastered sitting like a lady I put them on under her dresses.

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:16 am

      Hahaha, took most of us forget to master siting like a lady lol

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:04 am

      Hahaha took me forever to master the act of sitting like a lady

  32. August 9, 2016 / 1:04 am

    I must say that I only have one pair but have dressed them up as well as worn them casually.

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:18 am

      It only takes one pair to rock them 😊

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:05 am

      One pair is all one needs to start embracing them

    August 9, 2016 / 12:52 am

      😊 thanks

  34. August 9, 2016 / 12:22 am

    I didn’t know it was also referred to as hot pants. I normally wear them during the summer, or since we don’t really have fall/winter, I wear them with boots during the Holidays.

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:18 am

      How cool, I hardly pair them with boots but I want to try this Autumn

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:05 am

      Not tried wearing them with boots before might try this Autumn

    I dont wear hot pants, but my younger sister does. She’s also 13 years younger and has the body for them. lol

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:19 am


    • August 10, 2016 / 6:05 am

      I bet she rocks them too

  36. August 8, 2016 / 10:49 pm

    I’m not really a wearer of shorts, and I don’t think I’ve ever worn hot pants. I love your styling tips though. You really can make hot pants a very diverse piece of clothing in your wardrobe.

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:20 am

      Thanks, I try.

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:06 am

      Thanks so much, I try 😊

  37. August 8, 2016 / 8:38 pm

    I can definitely see how it would be a good idea to have a bunch of these. They can work with so many different tops!

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:23 am

      Exactly my thinking, I have a few and just switch them around

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:06 am

      I am sure you do

  42. August 8, 2016 / 4:32 pm

    I confess I do not own a single pair! When I was younger I owned a pair of black shorts, does that count? 😀

    • August 9, 2016 / 8:28 am

      That counts Elizabeth lol

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:07 am

    Cute outfit!! I haven’t really worn them too much, and after just having had a baby, I’ve been finding it hard to find things to wear that I feel are flattering… I bet with a loose top, I could get away with this!!! 🙂

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:08 am

      I believe you would Hun I do

  46. Shirley Wood
    August 8, 2016 / 2:23 pm

    Oh the memories of hot pants from when I was a teen back in the 70’s! Bright colors were very stylish back then. I like black much better because you can pair it with most anything! Cute purse.

    • August 10, 2016 / 6:08 am

      Exactly why I love black pants

  47. Alli Smith
    August 8, 2016 / 12:43 pm

    When I was in high school back in the late 70’s, hot pants (and tall boots) were all the rage. I can’t quite rock that look these days and have to go a tad longer, but I love black shorts.

    • August 8, 2016 / 1:23 pm

      Hahaha, I can’t believe how much fashion seems to be doing a 360. Everything from back in the day is hot now

  48. Lyndsey O'Halloran
    August 8, 2016 / 8:26 am

    I’m on the larger side of sizes so I just don’t feel comfortable in hot pants or short shorts. I do, however, have a few pairs of longer black shorts

    • August 8, 2016 / 1:22 pm

      I think you should wear what you’re comfortable in.

  49. Jenni Grainger
    August 8, 2016 / 7:27 am

    Ooh you are brave, I only wear hotpants under dresses now x

    • August 8, 2016 / 1:21 pm

      Aww thanks so much, I think they look cute under dressed too
