Weve had one clear crime against denim this week, in the form of denim panties (or janties, if you prefer).
Now, let us look at a more ambiguous case.
Topshop is currently selling a pair of wide leg jeans. Except theyre not entirely jeans, as half of each leg is a mesh fabric with little glittery hearts.
Im going to risk being made fun of by the internet at large by saying I quite like these. Theyre fun, right? A nice twist on traditional denim, a way to show off your legs without bothering with a skirt, and theres glitter involved, which is always a lovely thing.
Sadly, few people seem to agree.
When the jeans were shared online they received a number of befuddled comments, questioning why anyone would want jeans that make you look like you have four legs.
Theyve got a point – theres definitely a slight optical illusion going on. But maybe we want people to be puzzled by where our legs are. Theres nothing wrong with a sense of mystery.
Woozle Tweeted: Im still off work sick. Completely over the place on medication.
Got an email from Topshop. Am I hallucinating?
And Red Sky At Night Tweeted: Go home Topshop, youre drunk.
The product description for the jeans, which are priced at £60, reads: Black wide leg jeans with glitter heart mesh outer leg panels. High waisted design.
The model wears the jeans with a matching mesh top, which, again, I quite like! I expect to be in the minority with this view.
