Rogue’s Gallery: Holey clothes


Seamless holes leggings, $18. Wet Seal

 As most of our readers will have realised by now, that dastardly criminal known only as Jack the Fashion Ripper has been busy lately. REALLY busy. In fact, we've now reached a stage of critical mass with the holey clothes that have resulted from his vicious attacks, and we've had to open a whole new wing in our jail for them. (Don't worry, it's the hospital wing. We see these unfortunate items as victims, not criminals).

Of course, while we tend to view the holey clothes epidemic as a crime, we're sure some of you have other ideas: this look is so prevalent at the moment that SOME of you must be wearing it, so if you are, you'll love what we have for you under the jump…

Sometimes the holes cover the entire garment, as in the two cases above. Other times, they're more subtle, like this Marc Jacobs dress, £850.


Or this one by Costume National:


Sometimes they're very unexpected, like this ASOS top:

And sometimes they are part of a SHRESS. Thanks, Topshop!


Wherever and however they appear, though, it's clear that the holes are out there – and they're probably coming to an outfit near you soon. What do you think about this latest development in fashion, readers? Love it? Hate it? Or, as with so many trends, is it a case of "depends on the item"?
