Detachable jeans are having a moment. Actually, the moment hasn’t even begim because they’re being called the it jeans of the summer. Let’s discuss, shall we…
First, there were the jeans with the booty zipper and now there are detachable jeans. Why don’t people just resort to shorts? Oh wait, these actually become denim shorts! They’re designed by Opening Ceremony so I know they won’t come cheap. Nope. These jeans retail for $419!
Detachable jeans are part of the fashion brands Y/Project collection. I guess the construction is a good idea. For instance, I had on idea it was going to be as hot as it is today in LA. Therefore, I’m wearing a Champion sweater. I’d love if this sweater had detachable sleeves or something. So, these jeans will come in handy when you dress incorrectly for the weather or if you want to take your look from day (shorts) to night (pants).
The question is: do you want to spend $400 on a pair of jeans? For that price, you can buy a pair of denim shorts and full-length jeans.
