From bold vinyl trousers to daring mesh t-shirts, Topshop aren’t afraid to shy away from courageous fashion trends. After all, they’re constantly encouraging us to try something new and for that we salute them.
That said, recently the brand have been bringing out ‘garms that have us raising our eyebrows for all the wrong reasons. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for self-expression, but these new pieces will leave you BEYOND confused.
In fact, you’ll probs feel like Jade does in this GIF after you see ’em…
So, at the beginning of last month the retailer released a pair of mom jeans.
Simple, enough, right? This is where the weird part comes in. The jeans had a see-through, plastic window in the knees of them.
They looked like this…
And, we were all pretty puzzled.

A lot of people were worried about how sweaty they’d be! Also, what the heck would you wear with them? Any ideas?

Topshop’s latest pair of jeans are even more WTF, though. Forget about sweaty knees, these are about 10 times worse. Why? Well, the whole leg is made of plastic. Yep, that’s right!
Say hello to all-plastic jeans…
We feel hot just looking at them.
Twitter has naturally gone into *FULL BLOWN MELTDOWN MODE* over these bad boys. And, we can’t really blame them… WHAT. EVEN. ARE. THEY.
Prepare to lol…
