Fashion Ripper Strikes Again: Idol Slash Back Leggings at New Look

Although at first sight these look like ordinary black leggings from the Idol brand at New Look.  But turn them around and our suspicions are confirmed.  Yes, the Clothes Ripper has struck again.  It seems no garment is safe from the vicious attacks and striking from behind is a particularly low blow on the Ripper’s part.  At least this time he went to the trouble of actually punching out a pattern with the holes, rather than just slashing the leggings randomly.  Perhaps it is not the Clothes Ripper at all; perhaps we have a copy-cat criminal on the loose.

Some people might like this look (well someone must, New Look have them listed as a best seller and they are low in stock in a size 6 and 16) but personally we would be disappointed to pay £15 for a pair of leggings only to find the back of them is in tatters.  We would also be afraid that the ‘designer holes’ would split further and end up as one big, well, hole.

If you disagree and want to buy these leggings, you can do so here.

    As slashed leggings go, these aren’t too bad. The worst offenders have the wide horizontal slashes that make anyone who isn’t 6′ and a size 8 look three times their size, especially when the slashes are stretched into oval shapes.
