So I'm browsing topshop for a new pair of jeans.

I come across these:

I don't understand. Are skirts over trousers fashionable again??!!!

Yikes, they're awful.

Yurghhh! Would probably look good on an ultra-skinny 14 year old though.

Oh no, not again! I remember this trend last time round. It looked silly then but I still wore it and it looks silly now I will probably end up wearing it.

thing is if you wanted that look it would be sooooo easy to make yourself!

I can guarantee they will have tonnes of them left over in the next sale!

I am happy to not be down with the kids if that is what is cool. They are hideous!

I wore skirts/dresses over trousers the first time round and thought I looked amazing would never have worn them like that though grin I can't imagine who would wear them - certainly no teenagers round my way.

I used to work for top shop back in the 90's when the "scousers" = skirt over trousers -came out.

Although they were tailored ones they were awful and we had to wear them as part of our uniform angry

MissLupescu Mon 27-Feb-17 18:20:20

Got to say though, my work ones were not as hideous as those!! shock

littlebunnyhophophop Mon 27-Feb-17 18:25:38
