Harem Hell: Vivienne Westwood’s ‘sweater pants’

vivienne-westwood-trousersYou COULD pay £265 for these Vivienne Westwood trousers. You could do that.

OR, you could simply take that ugly old over-sized sweater you got for Christmas that time, and wear it upside, on your legs.  Same difference, really. Either way, you’re looking at some serious time in the Fashion Police jail…

    You have featured some true harem pant horrors over the last few months. These are, without question, the worst. The absolute worst. How could anyone, even for a split second, think that they were even remotely an acceptable notion? I think I might get nightmares.

      I’m afraid I have to disagree: after those “leggings” from the other day, this barely registers…

    if the sweater is too ugly to wear as a sweater i don’t get how making it into pants will somehow make it gorgeous…

    I really hope the “neckline” on those is closed.

    I am a huge Vivienne Westwood fan and like nearly everything she makes. That is why I am extra shocked now! Words cannot truly describe how hideous those pants are.

    This reminds me of when I was a little kid and thought it was really funny to wear underwear on my head and stick my legs in the arms of my shirts. But I think doing it as an adult (and wearing it outside) might actually make people think you were psychotic. I just hope the next fashion statement isn’t pants on your top.

    I’ve finally figured out what these look like!

    When I was a kid playing dress up with my mom’s old clothes, sometimes I’d put a sweater on with the arms over my legs. That’s what these look like: like someone tried to put a top (looks like a hoodie) on like pants.

    (Sorry, JB, I read your post after writing this).
