Topshop is selling these 'clear plastic jeans' for €76 and enough is enough

You’d be praying for rain.

2017 HAS ALREADY given us the fancy zip jeans that show off your arse cheeks, and the fashion world is always moving forward.

Now, Topshop has clambered aboard the carousel of ridiculousness:

Introducing the “Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans” for €76

Which look like one of those plastic rain protectors you’d get at a festival – except in trouser form

Reading the description gives you an insight into what they’re going for here:

Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans – guaranteed to get people talking.

You can’t argue with that.

They’re not going for irony with these trousers *at all* – in case that’s what you were thinking:

In a straight leg cut, they feature classic pockets detailing and are cropped at the ankle bone. Ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party, take the look to the extreme with a bikini and sequin jacket or dress down, layered under an oversized jumper or asymmetric hem dress.

As expected, people have been gleefully taking the piss

The elephant in the room here is that they’re not even jean material

They’d experimented in this area before, but now they’re all in
