See-thru jeans? Say it isnâ€™t so! - Fashion + Beauty on Shine
If you're up on your celebrity fashion trends, you're fully aware of the no-pants movement, as made popular by Lady Gaga and Victoria Beckham. This summer so many stars walked the red carpet and attended events pantless that we almost started to think it was normal.
Well, autumn is upon us, and here in New York temperatures have dropped to the high 60s. It's that heartbreaking time of year when our bare legs are forced to hide behind pants. Or is it? An even scarier trend is emerging than no-pants: see-thru pants! Yes, you read that right. Many brands have sliced, diced, and inserted lace and mesh panels to allow your skin to show though.
The styles above were all found while browsing Shopbop.com: Siwy denim with leg cut outs lead the pacj at $242, Rag & Bone pants with mesh side panels are $275, David Lerner lace frontal leggings cost $110, and the ShopBop super shred jeans will set you back $225. Why pay so much for pants that don't even do their job as pants?! Fear not: American Apparel is serving up a more affordable sheer version for $40. Ugh. Not only are all these pants totally hideous and tacky, they're impractical. Most of the new styles would put your legs--not to mention undies--on full display!
Here's the part where we at Shine beg you: Please do not let the see-thru pants trend happen. Let's nip it in the bud right now. Jeggings are bad enough.
