While Olivia Ponton can often be found in a swimsuit if she’s not showing off her immaculate street style, a recent TikTok post showcased the model wearing a controversial item of clothing: jean shorts. 

Ponton donned a printed string bikini with a pair of oversized jorts hanging loosely on her hips, which she paired with white athletic sneakers. The 20-year-old spun around as she modeled her outfit from various angles and declared, “You cannot tell me that jorts aren’t f------ cute as s---.”

“Yes, they’re 10 sizes too big, and yes, they’re falling down a little bit, but they’re hot,” she stated in the clip.

Ponton signed off by wishing her followers “peace and love.”

“hot girlz wear jhorts,” she wrote in the caption of the take she shared with her 7.9 million followers. Surprisingly, the comments section was divided.

“girl ily but pls no,” one person wrote.

“not the move girl,” someone else concurred.

“Cool 😀,” one individual agreed with Ponton.

“yessss,” another fan added.

“don’t know what ya’ll talking bout she looks amazing wt them,” an additional person pointed out.

“livy can pull off anything tbh,” one follower stated simply.
