Style on Trial: “Wooden leg” pants by Michael Kors

Wooden-leg-pants

And the must-have fashion item for this season is… a pair of wooden legs! And by "wooden legs" we mean "legs that look like tree trunks"? Or maybe not. These wood print pants are by Michael Kors, but given that "tree trunk legs" aren't exactly something many of us aspire to having. we're wondering how much of a hit these will really be. Especially considering they cost $995.

What do you think, readers? Tree trunk trousers: are they a crime of fashion, or are you getting your credit card ready for action as we speak? Tell us!

    Because so so often I’ve thought to myself, I wish someone would make a pair of wooden effect trousers. Now that they’re here I am completely delighted.
    How could anyone ever want to wear anything else?

    The crotch is in its rightful place, so these aren’t particularly offensive. I’d wear them if I were a carpenter…

    My brain instantly went to “Love Actually.” “No one’s going to fancy a girl with thighs the size of tree trunks.”
    That said, they aren’t the worst things I’ve ever seen, but I wouldn’t wear them.

    The look is way too trendy for the cost. the idea is interesting if it were made of a different material…maybe somewhat sheer to be a kind of summer beach pant

    Well, they’re nicely shaped, and I like the rich tone of the color, but the woodgrain print just doesn’t do anything special for me. I will gaze, but not buy.

    Aww! You could wear a green t-shirt with them and look like an actual tree!
    Seriously, they are just not cute.

    Maybe if they were skinny leg, then you wood look stick thin! (I know, I’m ashamed of myself :D)

    i think they are very unfortunate. Pinocchio is the only one who can pull off wooden legs in my opinion
