Hot or Not: "Granny Panty" Bottoms

Posted by Hafsa | Tuesday November 30, 201017 comments

We thought it a bit odd seeing shorts bearing an unfortunate resemblance to the dreaded Granny Panty on trend-conscious celebs...

Sienna Miller, Rihanna, Katy Perry

...and we dismissed it as a Gaga-esque trend we hoped we'd never see again-- that is, until we spotted the shorts on models walking the catwalk during the Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Week!

Elie Tahari, Jeremy Scott, Project Runway Season 8 Winner Gretchen Jones

Could this be on its way to becoming a bona fide trend during spring and summer of next year? If you're interested, here are a few pieces we spotted online...

Urban Outfitters Pleasure Doing Business RicRac Shorts US$178, Stolen Girlfriends Club Cableknit Shorts US$138
Topshop Gem Covered Knicker Shorts US$50, Topshop Seventies Style Shiny High Waisted Shorts US$55, Savant Embroidered Silk Hot Pants US$250

Would you could you like this trend?

This looks horrible. For once, it looks absolutely horrible on any size body, no matter who fit you are or how long your legs are.

Only if I were Katy Perry.

It seems it's too late. I was watching the special with B on Thanksgiving night and I couldn't stop staring at the style of the outfit reminiscent of the "granny panty". I'm NOT for it! AND it's making a comeback to be worn in the public and NOT under the clothes?! I don't get it! Soon there will be nothing to hide - what happened to indiscretion? This all looks ridiculous! Please don't tell me I won't have swimwear options b/c they'll all look like this!

Well... I AM a granny! Even so, I'd only wear these for underwear, not outerwear. I'm also very short waisted so it would have to be a lower rise not to come up under my boobs.

I would if I had the body for it. The ones that Katy Perry is wearing are cute.

Yeah no way they look horrible and these celebs are wearing them as clothes not undergarments.
