Topshop Boutique knitted pants: Fashion Police confused

Topshop Boutique knitted pantsTopshop are selling these knitted pants.  And that’s all they are prepared to say on the matter.  There are no pictures of them styled with anything, no suggestions of what you would wear them with and nothing to say whether they are supposed to be underwear or outerwear.  Just that they are high waisted, knitted black pants.  Which we could kind of see for ourselves from the picture.

At £40 and with them being marked dry clean only, we have to assume that they are outerwear.  But where would you wear them and with what?  If you have an answer to that question then please let us know!  And if you love them and want to buy them, you can find them here.

    Er…I guess they are the ones that an elderly Wonder Woman would wear. They just took off the stars and knitted them.

    Haha! Knitted knickers, that’s priceless!
    I don’t actually want to wear them, I want to make them!

    What to wear with them? Does your inner eye come up with purple leggings underneath? Or even worse: gold lame ones? And something completely hideous at the top? A wildly flouncy, mock-womantic blouse – or a fringed cowboy suede jacket? Howl

    They seem to be meant to be worn as beachwear.

    They would be a solution to the problem of leggings worn as trousers. If your top wasn’t long enough to hide your butt in the leggings, you could put these on and … and …ok, not a great solution, I’ll give you that.

    I would wear those with the Darth Vader’s helmet. So nobody will recognize me.

    I’ve seen these before, and I didn’t like the idea then either!

    Knit shorts are starting to become a bit of a trend, I reckon they can be quite cute if worn with the right items:

    Actually there outwear and you wear them with leggings or thick stockings. You also pair them with a bulky sweater to add to the winter look.
