(PCM) There have been many, many crazy fashion trends over the years with a good majority of them being in questionable taste. Some make you raise your eyebrows and say ‘Are they serious?’ and others are just plain hideous. This was definitely our reaction to learning that Nordstrom is now selling “Clear Knee Mom Jeans” from TopShop because hey, haven’t you always wanted to show off those sexy knee caps!
The website’s description for the jeans is even better! It reads “Slick plastic panels bare your’ knees for a futuristic feel in tapered and cropped high-waist jeans”. The product is just ridiculous and we seriously can’t see these bad boys flying off the shelf anytime soon. Let’s not even talk about the fact that they cost $95!
This makes us feel vaguely reminiscent about the recent product that popped up for sale at Urban Outfitters. It was literally a small swatch of fabric that they were attempting to pass off as a $16 shirt. They called it the “Extreme Crop Top Shrug” and it only just covered the wearers shoulder blades and nothing else. Twitter went into an uproar, much the same as they are doing with the “Clear Knee Mom Jeans” and the product has since been removed from the Urban Outfitters website.
Urban Outfitters described their ridiculous product as “The ultra-sexy way to layer with this teeny cropped tank top by Out From Under. Cropped above chest for the coolest layered look featuring a crop neck and thin shoulder straps.”
Just make it stop! Please!
