Topshop is known for thinking outside the box when it comes to fashion.
Just last month the retail giant sparked online outrage after advertising "Clear Knee Mom Jeans" - a pair of high-waisted denim with rectangular clear plastic patches on the knees.
Now the retailer has released another questionable fashion statement: the MOTO Clear Plastic Straight Leg Jeans .
The fashion crime is just what it sounds like: a pair of see-through plastic pants.
It seems Topshop realizes just how ridiculous these "jeans" are.
"Think outside the box with these out-of-the-ordinary clear plastic jeans guaranteed to get people talking," the description on their website begins.
The site goes on to describe the pants as "in a straight leg cut, they feature classic pockets detailing and are cropped at the ankle bone. Ideal as a statement piece for a festival or costume party, take the look to the extreme with a bikini and sequin jacket or dress down, layered under an oversized jumper or asymmetric hem dress."
Social media users were quick to criticize the retailer.
"Topshop is ridiculous," one Twitter user wrote.
"Please can we all join together to pray for the future of @topshop," wrote another, while another user called the pants an "abomination."
If you are brave enough, the jeans are selling online for about $95.
