Don’t blink or you might miss the next weird denim trend. These bizarre denim styles are popping up left and right, and if you’re not paying attention while scrolling through Instagram — you might just miss the latest and strangest take on blue jeans.
The weird jeans du jour happen to be a pair of lace-up jeans from Fashion Nova. They’re more “lace-up” than they are “denim,” so honestly — even if you’re not totally focused on your social media feed — it’d be hard to miss these.
Behold, what the Fashion Nova website is referring to as Wild Thang Lace Up Pants:
“Wild” is an accurate descriptor, indeed!
These pants — and I use that term loosely — are retailing for $49.99, which is more affordable than some of the other weird denim trends that have come and gone, at least. But, if you were hoping to snag a pair of these — you’ll have to get in line. Because, you guessed it, they’re already completely sold out online!
The pants lace from hip to ankle, but have a stretched denim material to cover all of the important parts. The back side also offers way more coverage than the front and sides do. And, according to the reviews online, these bottoms “fit perfect[ly],” but there’s really too little fabric for the sizing to be off, to be fair.
The lace-up jeans are sold in sizes XS to 3X, and as mentioned, each size is already sold out. But you can sign up to be notified when your size restocks — if you’re brave enough to sport these skin-showing jeans.
