From lowrise to asymmetrical to thong jeans, denim has been experimented with in several ways. Just as we thought we had seen enough of denim fashion disasters, the denim underwear came to life. The undies, dubbed as “janties” on social media, are made
from 100% cotton and feature a complete look with buttons, a front zip, and even pockets (that can barely hold anything).
I’m sure this has left you very confused, and you’re certainly not the only one to be baffled by this weirdly unique creation. People have flooded social media with many unanswered yet logical questions about the denim underwear. Especially about how one is supposed to wear it. If you’re as curious and confused as everyone else who came across this garment, read ahead to find out what the hype is all about.
Fashion brand Y/Project recently introduced a never-before-seen item – denim panties. Yes, you heard it right. They created a pair of $470 jeans knickers. The “janties,” as people call them, are high-waisted, with a zip at the front and belt loops at the waistband. The undies also feature tonal stitching and free pocket styling. Basically, they’re just underwear but made of denim. The unique pair of panties raised quite a few eyebrows online. Some people were shocked, and others got furious.
Although they are supposed to be underwear, you don’t necessarily have to wear them under your clothes. The denim panties are worn as a replacement for shorts. Girs are styling the pants in different ways. Some wear it under their pants just like how you’re supposed to wear underwear, while others see them as shorts and go out in public wearing them outside. If you’re paying a whopping $450+ for a piece of clothing, you should be able to flaunt it.
What confuses me the most is where one can wear these denim panties? They’re inappropriate to wear to class but at the same time, not very suitable to wear to the beach either. However, even if I do find an answer to this, I’m certainly staying away from the denim abomination.
Denim undies became an overnight sensation. Just after 48 hours of their launch, the undies gained over 9000 likes. The likes, however, were all received as a mockery towards the product. In reality, people were outraged by the ridiculously expensive garment. People wondered who would be crazy enough to spend this much on such a horrific piece of clothing. More than that, they were confused over who in their right minds would wear something as ugly as this. But people never fail to disappoint. Even after massive hate and ridicule over the post, some people proudly sported and posed in the undies.
