The world of fashion is one that is constantly evolving with trends popping up left, right, and center. From big-name designer brands venturing into risky territory to local businesses trying to match up, the industry seems to be over-doing it.
The internet has been left completely divided after people stumbled across "butt-less" leggings and we can totally see why. They're certainly controversial...
And who is responsible for this daring trend?
It's none other than Rihanna!
And while we all know that Rihanna likes to stray on the wild side of fashion...
Many are saying that this is a step too far...
But it's not like we haven't seen strange trends pop up online before!
Here are just a few of the more... divisive things you can buy online...
1. Crop-tops for men.
via: ASOSI'm not saying that there's anything wrong with these tops, but... well, I am. These should not be a thing and I will not support any male that wants to be a part of the crop-top movement.
2. Denim knee-high boots... with pockets.
via: Browns FashionIt's the pockets that don't do it for me. What are you supposed to keep in there? Your keys? And the price really isn't going to work out for me either. These boots are currently being sold for one thousand six hundred dollars.
3. Distressed Mesh.
via: Dolls KillI'm pretty distressed knowing that people are walking around wearing "distressed" clothing. Especially mesh.
4. Transparent shoes.
via: Pretty Little ThingThese might be a bit weird, but it's one of the only items on this list that I am loving. When no other shoes will match with your outfit, these will always have your back. Practical and stylish, what's not to love?
5. Crocs with socks.
via: ALFIEYou'll either love it or hate it. And I hate it. Crocs should have never been a thing. The sock should have never been added. This whole thing should not have happened.
6. Platform crocs.
via: YOOXJust when you thought that crocs couldn't get worse - they do. And these ugly shoes will cost you over 500 dollars. Save your hard-earned money and go get yourself a pair of flip-flops.
7. Mixing animal prints.
via: SheinFor block-color lovers like me, this has to be my worst nightmare. This kind of dress is not for everybody, so purchase with caution.
8. Lambskin shoes.
via: FarFetchImagine walking down the street and stepping in a puddle with these on. Soggy sheepskin shoes. How appealing.
9. Fluffy eyebrows.
I might as well mention this while I'm out here talking about fluffy trends. Fluffy eyebrows weren't too bad until people tried braiding them. Then it all became messy.
10. Socks with sandals.
via: Nasty GalThis is another one that you either love or hate. After crocs with sandals, we obviously have to mention socks with sandals in general, because the trend is well and truly a thing in society now. After seeing these sheer socks paired with cheetah print platforms, honestly, I'm sold.
11. Car mat skirts.
via: BalenciagaBalenciaga has been known for its weird fashion trends, but it doesn't get much weirder than this. Car mat skirts. It's a no from me.
11. Double jeans.
via: Net-A-PorterDouble denim is already quite risky, so why the hell would you want to wear these out? And for 500 dollars?!
13. Sweater Sleeves.
via: TwitterThat's it, just the sleeves. For those summer days when you're missing winter.
14. Unicorn sneakers.
via: ASOSWould grown adults buy themselves a pair of these? ASOS seems to think so.
15. Twenty-Four Carat Meggings.
via: Kapow MeggingsMetallic meggings (leggings for men) have made a comeback and we still aren't here for it.
16. Flower-Vase Hair.
Credit where credit is due, this is pretty artistic. And it's good for adding an extra foot to your height. But I don't think that I'll be walking around with flowers on my head any time soon.
17. Glitter Bucket Hats.
via: ASOSThis fashion trend made a comeback late in 2018 and has managed to seep through into 2019. I was never a fan of bucket hats in general, but it's a trend that is slowly growing on me.
18. Neon cycle shorts.
via: BoohooIf you're not going cycling, stay away from these shorts. They're not as cute as you think.
19. Transparent Handbags.
via: TopshopThese handbags are cute and trendy and, just like the transparent shoes, I will be getting myself one of these. The only thing that I won't be doing is carrying what I usually carry in my non-transparent bags.
20. See-through lace shorts.
via: Hologram CityI'm just going to leave this here and move on... Lace shorts for men are an actual thing and they come with a matching lace shirt for all of you that want one!
21. Detachable Joggers by Fenty.
via: ASOSAre they shorts? Are they pants? I think they're meant to be a bit of both... Joggers are supposed to be the comfiest piece of loungewear, but I can hardly imagine sitting in a pair of these with the detachable straps digging at my legs. I really do love you, Rihanna, but these are a no from me.
22. Shoulderless Jacket.
via: JYJ LondonThis one is definitely not for winter. I wonder what possessed the designer to cut out the shoulders from this jacket? It seems a bit impractical, but I guess it might be good for the beach? But, to be honest, I would advise against purchasing one altogether.
23. Muddy Jeans.
via: NORDSTROMYes, you read that right. Muddy jeans. Jeans with mud on them. You'll be happy to know that it isn't actual mud, just a design. But that doesn't make them any better. Why on Earth would you spend four hundred and thirty-seven dollars on dirty jeans when you can probably by a pair for ten dollars and roll around in dirt? It's basically the same thing.
24. Muddy Jacket.
via: NORDSTROMIf you find yourself loving the jeans, here's a matching jacket for you, so you can get the full muddy look. Don't be shocked, both items are currently sold out on the website. Yes, there are people out there actually paying 500-odd dollars for these fashion disasters.
25. Ugg Sandals.
via: UGGYou really thought that I was done telling you about ugly shoes? Because I'm not. I present to you, the Ugg Sandals by Ugg and Teva, the ugliest shoes to ever grace the planet. I would rather wear a pair of Crocs (with the socks!) than walk out of the house in these and that's saying something.
26. Tutu Jeans.
via: TopshopWhen you can't decide if you want to wear a skirt or a pair of jeans, why not wear both? I'll tell you why, because it looks horrible. These are currently being sold on the Topshop website for fifty-eight dollars.
27. Hairy one-piece swimsuit.
via: Beloved ShirtsThis is the swimsuit that had the whole world talking. Imagine walking to the pool and seeing everyone wearing one of these. I do get the comedic value behind it, but, overall, I'm not a fan and I don't think that anyone else is either.
28. Neon Mesh Catsuit.
via: JADED LondonThere's more than one thing wrong with this outfit and you could probably name all of them from a quick glance. First of all, neon green is a color that should only be reserved for Hi-Vis clothing. Secondly, I think we already established that mesh print needs to go out of fashion, right now. And don't even get me started on the flares...
29. Marijuana Suit.
via: OPPOSUITSIf you want to walk around looking like a big marijuana enthusiast, then I would highly recommend buying this suit for a hundred bucks. Don't wear it to a job interview though, it might give off the wrong impression... You don't want to look like an idiot, do you?
30. Camel-toe shoes.
Let's end this the right way, with another pair of ridiculous shoes. I know these are designer, but who cares?
Ugly shoes are just ugly shoes, no matter who designed them.
Imagine paying a thousand dollars to have your toes separated in the most uncomfortable manner. Doesn't sound too appealing, does it?
And the latest weird trend to go rival?
Rihanna's butt-less leggings...
While Rihanna is typically known for Fenty Beauty, her lingerie line has recently overshadowed the brand after some fans discovered Savage x Fenty leggings with a very unique design.
Posting to TikTok, user @fathermarge released a video in which she shared her confusion over the backless leggings...
"Umm… Can someone at Fabletics tell me what this is? Things are getting a little bit crazy," she enquired.
🤢🤣— The Black Scotsman (@AJThe__Man) June 14, 2021
However, people were shocked to find that the risque design didn't actually belong to Kate Hudson or Adam Goldenberg, instead, it was created by none other than the beauty queen herself, Rihanna.
The video immediately went viral, racking up an impressive 3 million views with thousands of comments underneath.
girl they ain’t for the gym— Jonny 💙 (@CFC_FENTY) June 15, 2021
Of course, just like @fathermarge, many others were also left confused.
"Ummmm... Well, for me - I really don't want this to be my view at the gym..."
I'm sure there are a lot of men happy with this product— Stef (@steftravels) June 14, 2021
"If I'm on a treadmill and the girl on the step machine in front of me, is wearing one of these," one person said, while another added: "How did that get approved?" "Every day we get further and further from the Lord."
However, others embraced the design.
🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭— fashionbaeboutique (@fashionbaebout1) June 14, 2021
"Can we normalize butt cleavage?" one woman said in a response video. "Butt [cleavage] is sexy, butt [cleavage] is amazing. Let's normalize that."
According to the website, the pieces were designed for a "cozy night in."
Hard no— Mallory (@cvookis) June 14, 2021
"Our Soft Mesh Open-Back Crotchless Legging features sheer soft mesh fabric that provides a comfortable fit and an open strappy back for a playful surprise," it stated.
At first, I didn't know where Rihanna was going with this one, but after seeing some of the product reviews, I can potentially see it being a winner...
I’m all for any kind of cleavage. But BUTT cleavage. Nah!— Shorts McGill (@mcgillyshorts51) June 14, 2021
"It is pretty clear these aren't the type of leggings you are going to wear to the grocery store, but as something sexy and different for around the house or to sleep in? These are unique, flattering, and really pretty!" one review read, "I love the back detail and even the crotchless design, you can wear panties under them or go commando and both are comfy options."
While another stated it makes for a better alternative to lingerie, saying:
I can definitely get behind this idea.— Vader (@Livingfortheli1) June 14, 2021
"Sometimes lingerie my hubby finds sexy is complicated to get in and out of and/or constricting to wear. These leggings were both comfortable and very sexy."
Don't knock it until you try it...
But please, please, please don't wear these to your local grocery store. I have a feeling someone would call the police on you if you do...
