In 2016, the fashion isn't so much about style or fabric as it is about how little you can get away with wearing.
Celebrities have been wearing mesh skirts and crop tops that show off their oversized undies on the red carpet. Even the average teenager has traded in her push-up bra for a lace bralette, something in a vibrant pink or orange she can show off under a white t-shirt.
If this is a game of who can wear the least, however, Kylie Jenner already won.
The teenage mogul, usually spotted in bandage dresses, just Instagrammed two photos of her wearing a very strange pair of jeans. Instead of slashes across the knees, they prominently feature two oversized rips under the butt cheeks.
Is Kylie trying to escape summer swamp ass, discretely airing out her goods?
Does Kylie seek a kind of spiritual clarity only denim butt holes can provide, the way ancient shamans used to drill openings into the human skull? (If you really want to fall down a Google rabbit hole, search "trepanning.")
According to Instagram, the two photos garnered an astonishing one million likes each. All this, just for a shot of Kylie's derriere and a Metallica T-shirt. Notably, she paired the look with Gucci's $3,500 Sylvie tote bag.
This isn't the first time Kylie's used denim to make a statement, either.
Way back in February, she tried on Levi's "wedgie" jeans and left a nation astounded that you'd willingly choose to bunch fabric all up in your butt cheeks.
There's no word yet on whether these particular jeans will be coming to stores, or if Kylie just made the best of the situation when one of her Italian greyhounds ripped through her pants.
Either way, you can be sure copies will be on the shelves of Forever21 by the end of the week.
