Saks is touting these two terrible trends for Spring as must-haves. Must haves for who? Anyone flush enough and toned enough to spend nearly four grand on a pair of boots and ill-fitting shorts . Do not, I repeat, do not try this look if you’re over 40. Actually, don’t try this look if you’re over 30.
Helmut Newton did it better using a leg brace prop. Perhaps this iconic 1995 shot was the visual muse for all of this hideousness. Maybe Naomi Cambell can make this cringe-worthy trend work. I have my doubts. But expect to see it in the Hamptons and later on the twice-reduced sale racks.
