Jennifer Lawrence shows off her killer pins in a teeny pair of Daisy Duke-style denim shorts

Jennifer Lawrence has been keeping a fairly low profile over the past few months after getting back with her on-off boyfriend Chris Martin but then, in the space of two days, she gives us two killer outfits to pine over. 

On day one the 24-year-old X-Men actress stepped out in a black Isabel Marant mini skirt and a pretty cream blouse as she ran errands around L.A. but it was her second outfit that really caught our attention, mainly because she's the latest in a long line of stars to resurrect this tricky summertime trend. 

Basking in the sunshine, Jen certainly dressed appropriately for her day out as she worked a thin knit baggy jumper, a panama hat and black slingback heels and an on point bucket bag. However, the main focus of her get-up has to be her teeny tiny denim shorts that shows off her toned pins to perfection. We know what you're thinking — what a BABE. 

Her cut-offs were so short that they instantly made us think of Daisy Duke (played by Catherine Bach) from '70s TV series The Dukes of Hazard, who singlehandedly made bum-skimming denim shorts the hottest fashion trend of the late 1970s and early '80s. Of course, there's the film version that starred Jessica Simpson but, in the spirit of keeping things retro, we'll leave that one be. 

Undoubtedly denim shorts have become a bona fide summer style staple, but it seems a host of celebs have been showing super-short Daisy Dukes some major love, and it's all been in the last couple of days. 

Fashion icon Diane Kruger was spotted rocking hers earlier this week with a checked shirt and tan booties; an outfit which, let's face it, is borderline costumey. 

Vanessa Hudgens also rocked a pair of denim shorts while she picked up her dry cleaning in New York but having styled them with a bright peasant blouse and lashings of gold jewellery, her take on the trend was distinctly more boho. 

The big question is, are we actually ready to embrace Daisy Dukes once again? 

It goes without saying that it takes a brave woman to give them a go but with our expertly curated guide to getting your pins looking their best for summer, working a pair of DDs won't be nearly as scary...
