Rihanna's Odd Jeans: Is It Bizarre Pants Week and We Didn't Get the Memo?

On Monday, we were totally bewildered by Jessica Chastain‘s sheer-thigh trousers. Tuesday we tried to make sense of Justin Bieber‘s drop-crotch pants fixation.

Now we’re facing yet another pants crisis of epic proportions: Rihanna‘s dual-zip, dual-wash pair of jeans.

Perfect for the gal who feels that a single pair of jeans is just too flattering, or for one who likes the look of pants hanging off her butt while still giving a “mom jeans” vibe, these trousers are actually an original Rihanna design, part of her critically-lambasted collection for River Island.

And what we find even more distressing than the pants themselves is that the $150 pair has already sold out at River Island’s website — meaning that we’re doomed to see girls who aren’t Rihanna trying to pull this look off.

But since three’s a trend, maybe we’re the crazy ones, and these unusual pants are here to stay.

Tell us: What do you think of Rihanna’s latest look? Are you going to try wacky pants this spring?

They’re cute and I’ve seen pants like this before in the 90′s. Check out old pics of TLC. Not that odd really

A common trait among the mentally ill is wearing MANY layers of clothing. This “style” reminds me of being at work, where it’s fairly common for my clients to wear three pairs of jeans.

So much for knowing anything about young fashion or truly what Rihanna is all about People Mag. Rih’s jeans SOLD OUT same day they debut and backorders are out the roof. Ha!!! Those who think Rih is dumb and making dumb decisions are the ones who are really DUMB, blind, and living a sad and shallow life. Watch her, dont just READ what are a lot of lies about her, and witness how real and shear GENIUS she is. What you will find out is that she is really YOU living uncensored and not locked down by fear of what others think and feel, choosing to follow her heart and spirit. Which is why she stays WINNING!

I don’t see the big deal over Rihanna’s clothing line . No one is obligated to purchase either items. Young people are going to have fabs because that’s what they do. This young woman is investing in her career that’s called preparation for her future. However that particular style is similar of the pants in the 70′s because I had a pair that looked like I was wearing 2 pair of pants. People need to stop with the crab syndrome,and be busy setting up their own nest eggs. It’s evident that people like her style,and any notoriety towards this young woman is going to escalate her fashions more. Rihanna’s fans are going to support her regardless.My opinion,and i’m just sayin…:)
