A young lady literally committed a crime against fashion!
She was stopped by police who thought she was wandering around the streets half-naked in the middle of the day.
In fact, Abbie Crawford was braving the icy temperatures in a tiny pair of hotpants that were obscured by her coat.
The 25-year-old, who went viral after confused locals in Newton-Le-Willows in Merseyside took photos of her, has revealed the trusty item of clothing is her ‘pulling shorts.’
She said: “They’re my pulling shorts. I wear them when I crave attention – and obviously they never fail me.”
Abbie added that she found it ‘hilarious’ that her favourite pair of shorts had got so much attention. She said: “I had my music in, so didn’t notice anyone saying anything or looking at me in a funny way.
“My friend only just showed me the picture yesterday – I was stunned, I couldn’t believe it.”
As Abbie walked along the pavement with her headphones, people stopped and stared, believing she had gone out without underwear.
Officers eventually caught up with Abbie and, after establishing she was, in fact, wearing clothes, advised her to dress appropriately.
