There are no limitations to innovation when it comes to fashion. If it can be worn, it will be made regardless of how many people may frown upon these unusual threads.
Over the past five years or so, we've welcomed bold, eccentric trends that were previously specific to certain subcultures or recreational activities into the mainstream style space.
From sneaker trends, to stepping into biker territory with all things leather, to wearing boiler suits like Formula One racers, we've dabbled in most of it.
However, Balenciaga's platform Crocs never quite took off as intended. Whether that's a good or bad thing, is up to you.
And more recently, Eckhaus Latta collaborated with UGGs to make these furry mules.

But all of that is hardly a threat to your sartorial street cred compared to these new intriguing items of fashion that the brave might soon be wearing:
When short shorts are just not cutting it anymore, Y/PROJECT has got you for £235 (about R4.4K).
See-through PVC pants
Hear me out, these are very practical - they won't stain if you spill literally anything on them and they're the perfect protective layer to wear on rainy days over your normal tight-fitting pants.
Just don't sweat...
PVC skirt for more rainy days
Same logic as above still applies.
Rope it up
A rope-like pearl belt to cinch your waist because belts are too mainstream.
If Inception were a denim jacket
A jacket under a jacket under a jacket under a jacket....
When mercury retrograde has you feeling like wearing both blue and black jeans on the same day, so you wear both.
While it's always ideal to have a waterproof handbag, maybe one that has all the contents inside on full display is not for South African CBDs.
Semi-formal jean pants
Yes, I said "jean pant" because this is actually the true definition of that commonly used South African term for jeans. I mean, what else would you wear when you have a meeting at 2pm and drinks straight after?
A pair of skeans?
If a hybrid of a skirt and shorts is called a skort, it only makes sense that this combo be called skeans.
So, which of these weird and wonderful items would you confidently rock?
