Pretty Little Things’ new £30 ‘optical illusion’ leggings are mocked by fans on Instagram for looking like shorts
- Pretty Little Thing has released a pair of leggings with cut-out panels
- The garment was worn by London-based influences Leslie Sidora on Instagram
- Fans questioned whether the ‘confusing’ clothing was trousers or leggings
Pretty Little Thing has whipped its Instagram fans into a frenzy after sharing a picture of a model wearing a pair of ‘optical illusion’ leggings.
The online retailer reposted a snap shared by curve model Leslie Sidora, from London, sporting one of their cut-out bottoms.
However, the sheer panels left many fans baffled over whether the leggings were in fact shorts or trousers.
Many of their one million-strong following took to the brand’s social media page to question what the pants, which retail at £30 and also come in black, were called.
Originally shared by French-born influences Leslie Sidora, the leggings are nude from the tops of the thighs to the ankles, as well as featuring cut-out panels across the pockets and elastic.
The remainder of the garment is cream coloured, giving the illusion of cycling shorts.
And the edgy garment certainly divided opinion among followers, with one writing: ‘Wait they’re not shorts? Lmao well that made me even more confused.’
Another added: ‘What are those?’, while one agreed, writing: ‘Woah too confusing!’
Agreeing, one fan wrote: ‘Me too at first I thought they were shorts’, and another added: ‘Those pants kinda confuse me’.
Trying to figure out whether the leggings were shorts or trousers, another wrote: ‘These leggings had me confused’, while one agreed, writing: ‘I literally said the same thing to myself’.
Over the summer the retailer caused a stir when they launched completely see-through trousers costing £30, though recently reduced to £28.
A model for the brand was seen in campaign shots wearing them over very skimpy briefs, and teamed with a white crop top.
The trousers, available in sizes 4 up to 16 with a straight leg design, are fitted around the hips and cropped at the ankles.
