Lydia Bright Pioneers The Hotpants Business Suit - Office Appropriate?

lydia bright

Lydia Bright of The Only Way Is Essex is currently filming scenes for the sixth series of the show - her latest outing involved a two piece suit with the shortest bottoms we've seen in a very long time - a hotpants suit if you will...

Now, we remember back in the early 2000s when Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria started turning up at events in city shorts and many an article was written discussing whether these wannabe trousers could ever be appropriate officewear.

It feels like the world has moved on just a touch since those modest times given that this ensemble was presumably designed to be worn as an ensemble but are we being prudish saying we're not sure the world is ready for the hotpants business suit?
