We’d like to say that Topshop has dropped a completely wacky pair of trousers, but there would actually be little point in dropping these slacks – as they are entirely see-through.
Hot on the heels of the recent Clear Knee Jeans hype, the high street fashion giant has upped the ante and brought out a pair of chaps that could double up as a window.
The MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans, £55, are actually made from 100 per cent polyurethane and have left us wondering if they really are a step too far.
Firstly, what would you wear underneath? Granny pants? A thong? Nothing? Eek!
Topshop says: “In a straight leg cut, they feature classic pockets detailing and are cropped at the ankle bone.
“Take the look to the extreme with a bikini and sequin jacket or dress down, layered under an oversized jumper or asymmetric hem dress.”
Okay. That brings us to our second point: pockets. We’re not sure we want random passers-by scoping out exactly what make of phone we have, how much spare change we’ve got or what brand of chocolate bar we ate on our tea break.
Plus, who wants to squeak when they walk?
But Toppers insists: “Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans – guaranteed to get people talking.
“Ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party.”
A festival? They’d definitely be good in the mud. A costume party? Perhaps if you want to go as a sandwich bag.
Like them or loathe them, Topshop has got one thing right – they’ve definitely got us talking.
