Week In Pants: What Happens When Denim Gets Weird

Welcome to Week In Pants — a column where we celebrate all the best things that happened to your legs in the past seven days.

With all the ways denim's embracing its kook this year, you might think it can't get any more odd. But of course they can, silly. This week, while Complex gave us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the JNCOs revival (denim ponchos and raver flares, y'all), we found the so-weird-it-works trick to demystifying white jeans. And, straight ahead, we uncover the strange new phenomena of hyper-embellished denim and "secret jeans." Click ahead for your week in pants: Weird Denim Edition.
