This Week In Pants, Hot Pants Are Inevitable

Welcome to Week in Pants — a column where we celebrate all the best things that happened to your legs in the past seven days.

You didn't really think the '70s revival was going to end at cute flares and chunky platforms, did you? No, friends, we're not getting off that easy. This week, Louis Vuitton showed a series of the shortest of all shorts: Yes, hot pants will likely be making a comeback just as soon as the designers at Reformation get a load of these on Instagram. You wanted the '70s? Well, here they are in all their bare-thighed glory!

Meanwhile, dudes test (and heartily endorse) "anti-ball-crushing" pants, and Vogue staffers wore pajamas to work. Get ready for your week in pants.
