Nordstrom's 'Clear Knee Mom Jeans' baffles many shoppers

Share

Nordstrom's online store is once again making viral waves with an unusual product: window-legged trousers dubbed "Clear Knee Mom Jeans".

Another review says, "Finally my knees have been begging for a futuristic feel for years and I kept telling them they are way ahead of the times now they will be very happy that I can give them this wonderful gift". "I love me a sweaty knee". They earn the "mom jeans" description through fitting high on the waist, and being cropped below the knee.

That being said, others were more open-minded and supported the clear knee style saying, "Can someone buy these for me please".

Style expert Naima Turner-Fleming (no relation), founder and EIC of Style Pooh-bahs, has a different take. The jean design is a modern interpretation of the 80's denim trend and the clear patch is a clever stylish element aligned with the huge plastic see-through materials that are major for spring 2017 and spotted on the runways of designers such as Christopher Kane and Loewe. These aren't regular mom jeans (as in, the kind real moms wear, or even the kind hipsters wear ironically).

While the denim and perspex pair of trousers is definitely on the daring side, we don't think they look that bad.

The retailer is selling a $95 pair of high-waisted blue jeans with plastic, see-through kneecap covers sewn in. Haha yes I paid money for them! She is the author of The Unofficial Guide to Starting a Small Business and many others.
