Punctured Leg-Wear for Men and Women

 - Sep 9, 2009   Updated: Mar 24 2011
Distressed denim is hitting new heights in both men's and women's fashion. Ripped pants and leggings are at the forefront of this peek-a-boo-friendly trend but don't discount other methods of catching a glimpse of skin. Zippers, fishnets, lace-up backed leg-wear and sheer-front pants are popping up all over the place providing quite the eyeful.

Implications - Society is less concerned about so-called "propriety" than ever before, and with that increasing liberalism has come the freedom to explore new boundaries in exciting ways. More skin is definitely one way to draw more attention, and as these unusual pants demonstrate, that is an impetus which has definitely taken on a life of its own.
