Safety pants

Why are American Apparel and Urban Outfitters trying to push the diaper look this year?

American Apparel’s Huggies



And Urban Outfitters’ Pantload:


Jezebel’s take on the Harem Pant look that just won’t die:

“Quit trying to make harem pants happen! Look, you may think you look like the heir to a Swiss chocolate fortune who’s going dancing in Ibiza or needs a cover-up over your bikini when driving your moped from one side of Mallorca to the other when you wear these. But actually, you look like you’ve shit yourself and need to change your diaper. Trust.”

Do these retailers think that hard economic times are making us feel so insecure, we need diapers?
