If you’re in the market for a new pair of pants that combine the latest trend and a comfortable fit, these new Topshop bottoms aren’t for you. Actually, we’re really not sure who they’re for.
British retailer Topshop had buyers scratching their heads a few weeks ago when they released a pair of jeans that included a clear plastic panel. The ‘Clear Knee Mom Jeans’ were sold at Nordstrom for $95 USD and were described as “Slick plastic panels [that] bare your knees for a futuristic feel in tapered and cropped high-waist jeans.”
Even the model looks confused as to how to pose with these avant-garde pants. The thing we were most impressed with was that they are machine washable.
So far, the pants only have one review posted on Nordstrom’s website, and while we’re not saying it’s fake, it sounds pretty fake. Writes ‘Seemyknees,’ “I love these pants. Very comfortable and stylish. Finding these was a great start to my 2017. Going to be a great year!”
Well, ‘Seemyknees,’ prepare for your 2017 to get even better. Topshop has now one-upped themselves by taking their idea for clear, plastic knees and expanding it to an entire pair of pants.
Available for $100 USD, the ‘MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans’ is now available for all of your leg-sweating needs. You know that feeling when your legs stick to a plastic chair on a hot day and then you have to peel your skin from the chair to get up? That’s how we imagine these pants would feel the entire time you’re wearing them.
One reviewer on Topshop’s website hilariously noted that the downside to the pants was that they gave her a ‘visible panty line.’ No kidding.
Not surprisingly, social media has had a field day with these new clear ‘jeans.’
