Puma31 Jan 2020Sharia, 28: "Hot Girl Summer is the biggest flex to owning yourself and your own choices. Single ladies: Text him and call the other guy back, wear the dress, the hot pants and the bralette as a top. The shapewear that makes you feel sexy that nobody needs to know about… And do that ratchet sexy dance you like. We are feeling ourselves and our girlfriends too, hot girl summer screams unashamed female empowerment!"

Sophie, 24:"Hot Girl Summer means having the best care-free summer with my girls and making *so* many bad decisions that you wake up the morning after and discuss what you did last night for hours on end. Or in the famous words of Drake, it means 'I'll be wearing less and going out more with glasses of champagne out on the dance floor'."

Nicole, 19:"Hot girl summer is not about necessarily being single, but rather prioritising a good time, being free, doing what you want and looking good but all for yourself of course."Read nextThis is why we need to talk about gender equality in sports, according to female Olympic weightlifter Zoe Smith

Michelle, 47:"I question the definition of ‘hot girl summer’. Your best life is whatever you define it to be, and if that is what is important to you, then fine. But equally if someone enjoyed reading as much as partying, that too should also be classified as a 'hot girl summer'."

Women should have sex if they want to have sex and wear what they want to wear. I definitely think a girl should be able to be a hot girl in the summer! Women are constantly judged for what they do so they may as well do what makes them happy, regardless."
