Daisy Dukes

Daisy Dukes are extremely short, form-fitting, denim cut-off jeans shorts, usually portrayed as being worn by young women and girls in the American South. They were named after the character Daisy Duke, portrayed by actress Catherine Bach, in the American television series, "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979–1985). Catherine became a TV icon when, unhappy with the wardrobe provided for her Daisy Duke character, she fashioned short shorts from a pair of jeans. Thanks to the actress and her character, the term "Daisy Dukes" is now synonymous in popular vernacular with cut off denim jean shorts. Since then, they have become a pop culture icon.
