This trend wasn’t quite as stupid as the puffball skirt or stiletto heels, but it wasn’t exactly a pair of flat sandals either.
The premise was that women who had been forced to wear jeans so tight they right about cut them in half would be thrilled by a garment whose whole raison d’etre was bagginess.
It was going okay – until a young starlet was attacked by a stalker. She screamed and tried to run, but her trendy gear effectively tied her feet together at the ankle.
The sidewalk sleeper who rescued her was lionised and the fashion quietly died.
