Style Trial: River Island polka dot and stripe ankle grazer jeans

polka dot and stripe jeans

The Fashion Police love polka dots. We also love stripes. We’re not even averse to the odd bit of pattern-mixing, provided it’s done right.

Are these River Island jeans the right way to mix patterns, though? With one spotty leg and one stripey one, they’re either the best of both worlds, or twice as ugly as they need to be, depending on your opinion.

What IS your opinion on these? Are they innocent or guilty of committing crimes of fashion?

    They look kind of like clown pants. Not that that’s a bad thing, if you’re a clown. I guess. I still kind of like them, even though clowns are scary. XD Wouldn’t wear them, though.

    I’m having a bad 1980s flashback.

    My first thought was clow pants also.

    I saw the thumbnail on Facebook and desperately hoped they were legs from two different pairs of tights. *sigh*

    Am I the only one reminded of Freddy Mercury’s early leotards?

    These leggings should come with an epileptic seizure warning

    it’s really a awful work. i think the leg with stripes will look slim and the other will look podgy.

    Fine for a middle/high school student. Not ok for anyone over 16. :/
