2017 has been quite a year for zany jeans! And we’re not done with the madness yet. The latest pair to cross our radar are these specimens from Ksenia Schnaider, which appear to be a roomy, pleated pair of cut-off Bermuda shorts over a slimmer pair of jeans. However! It’s all just one glorious garment creating a beguiling optical illusion—beguiling or confusing, annoying, or tragic, depending on your point of view.
I have to say that I am a bit beguiled by this particular pair. The pleated front reminds me of my Zena’s from the 1980s, and I’m all for a loose-fitting thigh. Carry on, Ksenia Schnaider! By the way, they come in black, too, and they’re marked down (the blue version will set you back $409)..
