knee window jeansFirst, there were those mom jeans with the see-through knees that came out earlier this spring…and we can describe our feelings about these in one word: YUCK!

Who would ever buy these things? Honestly, they look like they belong in a parody– perhaps a new version of the mom jean’s segment on SNL.

But how about this idea– more recently we found these clear plastic jeans—totally see through!   Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse…it did!

We are still not sure if these totally clear plastic jeans are meant to be a joke or publicity stunt, but apparently, they are for sale…and if you are ready to plunk down $100 for these, we suggest that you don’t forget your Spanx underneath.  Black might be a nice contrast.  Read more here.

Not to be outdone by anyone, even more recently Nordstrom got into the crazy jean mania.  We saw these on the Today show yesterday morning–ripped and tattered fake mud-stained jeans that are meant to “embody rugged, Americana workwear” and show “you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”  And what a steal, at $425!  You can buy them (or not) at Nordstrom.
