Fashion's evolution has come to a point where most people don't understand the purpose of it anymore.
Are you planning your next holiday? Men, if you're looking to make a bold fashion statement, then there's something new in the market for you. They are swimming trunks, but not really the kind you'd expect when you think of basic. If anything, they're far from basic, CLEAR-ly!
If you want me to describe these unusual shorts in four words, they're transparent waterproof beach shorts. Yep, they're real, they exist and you can own a pair for just £22.42 ($26.99). Clear pouches in bags have been a trend for some time now, but that trend moved over to women's wear with clear skirts, hitting the market.
Now, it looks like the bizarre fashion trend has crawled over to the men's section as well. Manufactured by Maverick Swimwear, the shorts are completely see-through, but they come with a dash of color, The shorts have a neon green piping and drawstring.
The website says: The next generation of transparent beach shorts is here! Berlin waterproof transparent shorts lime are completely see-through and leave it totally up to you if you wanna wear a colorful statement speedo underneath or just go bare for fun!
The polyester shorts come with a neon lining that makes you pop out of the crowds! Exclusive limited edition - get yours now! They also mention that the black briefs shown in the picture do not come with the shorts when you purchase them!
Well, it's safe to say that not everyone is a fan of this new trend. Joed Bernal took to Facebook to comment: I'm living in a place where you can wear plastic to cover your private parts but drinking using plastic straws is a no-no. Amazing!
Timothy Forest Elmer asked quite a valid question: For when you want to wear a speedo but don't want to feel as exposed??? Almondia Baruel Marcos added: My haberdasher gave me a pants made of thin air, trimmed with air laces, with embroidered cat face made of air. All materials are authentic air. Chau Huynh posted: Where can I buy this kind of raincoat? I need to keep my groin dry during these raining days.
