Fluro animal print running shorts from Topshop: not in our gym…

Animal-print-running-shorts

Topshop suggest these fluorescent, animal print running shorts would be "perfect for the gym".

All we can say to that is that we're glad we don't go to the same gym as Topshop, because these are in clear contravention of Point 2 of The Fashion Police Law on Animal Print:

"Animal print should only ever appear in colours you'd see on animals".

As far as we're aware, there are no fluorescent leopards, so these shorts have definitely fallen foul of that rule, and as such, we're sorry, but they're booked. If you want to get them out of the jail, you can buy them here: bail is set at £12.

(Rule One of the The Fashion Police Law on Animal Print, by the way: "Use it sparingly. Sparingly.")

    Noooo, Melanie, dont talk of BB yet!! Thats scary haha!
    They are bad, esp the seam running up the front, where the colours dont even match. Primark have the worst 3/4 leggings, in a ghastly ’80s print, seems this horror is spreading!

    Eeewwwwwwwww.
    I think that you can get away with a lot of things when it comes to gymwear – things that would ordinarily look too scruffy or that involve lycra. These, however, are inexcusable.

    omg, deja vu! They look like something I would have worn in the early 90’s when I was 11. This is in no way contemporary or even retro-cool. tacky, trashy, and ugly.

    This is entirely too close to the late 80’s / early 90’s for my comfort. Makes me think of Saved by the Bell and push-pops and scrunched down socks and NO THANK YOU. I do not want to go back there.

    I think I could get a good workout with these shorts. Running away from them!

    They’ll look especially nice once they’ve been washed 20 times and gone slightly grey…
