​ASOS Is Selling Some See-Through Trousers For £40

We've all got our preferences when it comes to fashion, and even within the world of trousers there's a lot to consider. Zips or buttons? Baggy or tight-fitting? A classic black shade or something that's a bit more jazzy?

But there's one thing I always want my trousers to do, and that's to cover my legs up. Seems like the least I should be asking for, right?

Apparently not - as proven by these see-though trousers ASOS is currently selling.

The 'sheer organza combat trousers in white', which come from Flounce London and cost £40, are 'wafer thin and sheer as you like', according to the ASOS website.

Made of 'smooth, crisp organza', the trousers feature a high-rise waist and are designed for those days that 'call for a little extra'. Looks like a little less, to be honest, but sure.

They have nice little side pockets, too - although it looks like these are see-through as well, so you probably wouldn't want to go stuffing any snotty tissues in there.

One person who had spotted the trousers on ASOS tweeted: "I love ASOS but why on earth would you wear that?"

Another commented: "Might as well wear clingfilm."

If see-through trousers aren't your thing, maybe you might want to opt for these aysmmetrial jeans instead?

Yep, for the absolute steal of $375 (£290) you can wear jeans that are half normal, half flared, letting your fashion choices meet the best

These bad boys are the creation of designers Ksenia and Anton Schnaider, known professionally as Ksenia Schnaide.

Schnaider told Vogue: "My partner, Anton Schnaider, said that it was too crazy and no one needs jeans like this, so I abandoned this idea for a couple of seasons. But a few months ago, I realized that at least one person needs such jeans - me!"

Or you could just go for the double flare with a pair of boot-cut jeans, which GQ said were making a comeback not too long ago - much to our horror.

Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia is said to be the man spearheading the boot-cut revival that no one asked for, having recently included the style in the brand's 'lookbook'.

In the article on the bootcut's comeback, GQ wrote: "It's a pretty tall order to get fashion-savvy men wearing flared-out denim again, but if anyone could do it, it's Gvasalia.

"He is, after all, largely responsible for turning the bulky dad sneaker from fashion faux pas into certified banger."
