Hot New Trend: Jindows?
If the fear of a chilly breeze has prevented you from donning holey jeans, Topshop has just the thing: “Clear Knee Mom Jeans.” As the name suggests, the jeans being sold for $95 on Nordstrom’s website feature rectangular patches of clear plastic over the knees—because, fashion. Indeed, the product description suggests no other reason for the design other than to add “a futuristic feel” to your closet. But one snarky reviewer says the jeans are also “a successful resolve to the conundrum of maintaining your knee tan.” Another adds they’re a great option “if your [sic] running late and only have time to shave a couple sections of your legs,” per UPI.
That’s not to say these “jindows”—jeans with windows, obviously—don’t have any fans. More than a few Twitter users are hoping to snatch them up, reports BuzzFeed. But it appears many more are downright confused by the concept. Of course, Topshop’s products don’t always make sense to consumers. One Twitter user points out the company also sells jeans that come with a black tulle skirt attached. While CBS Los Angeles acknowledges that fashion is sometimes “deeply perplexing,” it notes Nordstrom isn’t one to shy away from the bizarre.
