ASOS Under Fire For Pricey, Nearly-Nude "Cling Film" Pants And "Bubble Wrap" Dress

In the world of fashion one day you're in and the next day you're out...

But the day when you're "out" CANNOT come quickly enough for these transparent pieces...

I absolutely cannot imagine an occasion when these would be necessary or appropriate?! This garment treads an awe-inspiring line of a complete lack of functionality coupled with an eye-scaldingly poor aesthetic. Truly, astounding stuff.

One ASOS shopper made the particularly astute observation that farting in these trousers would cause them to fog up. And though that wasn't our first thought... We see what they mean...

Still, the pants have pockets! Pockets that will make visible the keys, tampon and crusty lip balm you always carry with you, but still! Any woman knows, that makes these pantaloons worth their weight in gold.. although come to think of it, there's not a whole lot of weight to these gossamer atrocities.

Sure, it's not as ridiculous a price tag as some retailers charge for their completely useless, garbage garments but still. You'd be better off sticking wet toilet paper to your legs if you were really that desperate to get this transparent "look".

But that wasn't the only trendy treat ASOS had up their sleeve! How do we know this? Because their sleeves are freakin' see-through, like every other item of clothing they're trying to palm off to unsuspecting teens...

Brace yourself for the bubble-wrap dress.

Sick of not having an ever-present draft on your derriere? Who would have thought the answer to your problem would only cost triple figures... Wow. What a time to be alive.

Am I being harsh? Is it just because this was clearly designed with a beach-goddess in mind and I feel left out? Or is it normal to feel this level of exasperation that people are conned out of their hard earned cash to look like they've been sprinkled in sugar while they strut around in next to nothing in public?? You tell me...

Are you getting online right now to see if they have any left in stock?? Make sure to tag the friends you can see rocking (or burning) these outfits! Let me know how much you'd have to be paid to wear either piece in the comments too! AAx
