Flying the Flag of Fashion Crime: Topshop’s pastel flag skinny jeans

Hey, American readers! Are you feeling patriotic, by any chance? Or maybe you’re just feeling indecisive, or bored with the sheer tedium of wearing jeans in which both legs are approximately the same colour? Either way, we have the perfect solution for you: Topshop’s pastel flag skinny jeans!

Yup, with stars to the left of you and stripes to the right, there you’ll be, stuck in the middle of the kind of fashion crime that will have motorists crashing their cars as they strain to get a closer look at what the hell you’re wearing on your legs. As for British readers, who’re perhaps more likely to shop at Topshop, even although it does sell internationally… well, we’ve no idea what you’d want with a pair of stars and stripe jeans, but if these have just made you gasp, “My God! Those would be perfect for [insert event here]!” you can buy yourself a pair for £45.

What do you think? Will you be flying the flag (on your legs) anytime soon?

    Oh god, these are the tackiest pants I’ve ever seen. I’m disappointed, Topshop.

    Hey, these look like the bike pants I bought in the early 90s (because it was the 90s and Axl Rose had a pair just like them… )! I still have them, but use them for costume purposes only.

    Scary stuff. Even if Memorial Day is Monday, I STILL wouldn’t wear these.

    I’m glad I’ve never seen the Canadian flag abused in this manner.

    The funny thing is that if those jeans were only the candy stripe or pastel blue with the stars, they would be mine in an instant.

    Why in the heck would a U.K.-based store sell American flag apparel? I am perplexed. Actually, I wouldn’t even support an American store selling that abomination.

    Ha ha, I actually really like them! They’re funny and quirky but not over-bearingly so, due to the pastel coloring.
    I’d wear them. XD

    Looks like something Dave Lee Roth left in front of a sunny window for a few months. If they were in different colours like maybe a light lime and a pale lemon I might be tempted, though. I’m not saying that I’d be proud of it, but yes.

    WHY, Topshop?! WHY?! Pastel colored pants are not even cute! This is just a shame to the American flag seeing as how our colors are not even peach and turqoise! Pastel red/blue just look disgusting.

    I would TOTALLY wear these. I mean most of the things on this website are unthinkably horrible but these are okay.

    I’m not an American but I live in Canada or as Homer Simpson wisely put it “America Junior” 😉 and I have to say these are really really bad. I have seen some clothes with the pattern of the American flag that are cute, but these do not fit the bill!

    And I agree with Eden that if these jeans were either all striped, or all blue with stars, they’d be great. Especially the stripes.
