Happy April Fools Day! Being a fashion blogger and a general lover of getting dressed, I really try to stay abreast of style trends. However, every once in a while I come across buys that make me scratch my head.
Often, these pieces are being sold at retailers and by brands that I otherwise respect. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people expressing their unique style, but these are some products I really can’t get behind. So, in honor of April Fools Day, I’ve compiled a list of those buys — the buys I personally believe might just be actual April Fools jokes.
1. TOPSHOP Clear Knee Mom Jeans
This is actually the product that inspired this post. What in the actual F?! For a mere $95, your knees can have their own windows. I don’t know about you, but the whole concept just really sounds sweaty!
2. Gucci Ilse Sock Sandal
Truth: I’m not a fan of the sock with sandal thing that’s having a small moment right now. But I’m really not a fan of actually buying a weird glossy “sock” already attached to said sandal, and especially not when that tacky plastic sock and sandal duo costs $1,190!
3. Miu Miu Jewel & Feather Faux Fur Sandal
While we’re on the topic of sandals, how about these Big Bird-esq beauties from Miu Miu?! For just under $1,000, you can walk the streets looking like one of those fancy chickens.
4. Urban Renewal Remade Spliced Hoodie Sweatshirt
Now that’s interesting — in case you don’t have two old hoodies to cut in half and sew together as part of a DIY project, you can simply pay $59 for this odd look.
5. Prada Linea Rossa Printed Grip-Strap Sandal
I don’t have a problem with the normal-priced versions of these sandals for things like camping and hiking (although I wouldn’t wear them myself). However, paying $545 for a Prada pair? I can’t!
6. Gucci ‘Lesley’ Zebra Stripe Pump
Gucci is taking home my April Fools Day prize here. I’ll end this rant of a post with these ridiculous pumps, complete with their own zebra tail. Seriously you guys, I can’t make this stuff up!
So…what do you think? What other crazy potential April Fools fashion jokes have you found?
