For the love of god, please do not let this trend take off! I mean, man, that is just… UGLY.
(and seriously, that’s one of today’s headlines on the Yahoo! homepage)
On a different front, one of the BBC predictions for 2007 is the upcoming death of denim:
“Jeans, in their seemingly endless incarnations – bootcut, hipster, wide-legged, high-waisted – have been THE High Street fashion success story of recent years. But that’s about to end, says Hadley Freeman, fashion writer on the Guardian. A combination of customer fatigue, overexposure and, frankly, a lack of any new denim styles left, means jeans, while still a wardrobe basic, won’t generate anywhere near the excitement that they have for the past half decade,” says Freeman. At the end of 2006 you could already see customers and retailers experimenting with alternatives, from leggings to shorts over cashmere tights.”
NO! Not jeans! COME ON.
The day is full of good news, huh?
