sheer pants

July 10, 2011

There’s this new trend that I’m not sure how I feel about.

The sheer pants.

Ok, so Givenchy loves them, but what do the rest of us think of it?

When I first saw them, I was like whaaaattt on earth are those. But just like sushi, it kind of grows on you (I don’t eat sushi but whatever). After looking at them many times, I kind of got the point. It’s just stylishly cool, especially the ones with coloured prints you see in Zara and Topshop.

So, me being me, I bought a pair.

Where are they now?

I have no idea. I got lazy to figure them out. I mean, seriously, they are SHEER. The only way people could wear them was with shorts or leggings inside. I imagined myself in them with inner leggings and I just saw a girl wearing 2 pairs of pants. I think it definitely looks nicer with shorts inside so it makes a fashion statement.

No one would wear them in Malaysia, I thought.

Bam. Saw someone in Bangsar today. She looked effortless in a white tank top, white shorts and white sheer long pants. If only she wasn’t about 40 years old, I would’ve stamped her as cool.

Dean didn’t think so. “Look at that person!! What happened to her pants?”

“It’s the trend now. Is she wearing pants, is she not wearing pants, that’s the mystery of it.”

“It’s a waste of money. Wear one or the other. If girls want to cover, cover all. If they want to wear sheer pants, make it totally sheer.”

Ah, such a charmer, he.

What do you think of the trend? Would you dare to wear them?
