If you’re a little confused — scratch that, extremely confused — by some of today’s latest fashion trends, you’re not alone.

Just a couple of months ago, the internet went berserk over Nordstrom’s “Clear-Knee Mom Jeans,” a $95 pair of pants with the following description: “Slick plastic panels bare your knees for a futuristic feel in tapered and cropped high-waist jeans.”

And unfortunately, the overpriced bizarre denim trends didn’t end there.

Upside-down jeans turned dress for only $445?

DIY denim projects have always been a popular trend — what may come to mind is something like cutting long pants into shorts or maybe adding a few rips in the pants to make them look worn. Quick and easy ways to get more use out of an old pair of jeans.

But these days, clothing brands will do it all for you — like cut holes in the knees and cover them with plastic…

And that’s not all.

The latest denim trend is a dress that’s essentially an upside-down pair of jeans with all of the inside material cut out. Literally, it’s wearing two pairs of oversized, upside-down jeans that are sewn together with straps at the top and the waist around your knees.

The company behind the dress, 6397, is selling it on ShopBop for $445 — which is at least cheaper than buying two pairs of the brand’s $265 jeans and making this thing yourself.

Oh, and the worst part? It doesn’t even have pockets. Well, technically it does, but they’re upside down — so maybe don’t put anything important in there.

Guys, if you feel left out, don’t worry — there’s a terrible overpriced denim trend available to you, too! Nordstrom has distressed-looking jeans with fake mud splashed across them to show you’re “not afraid to get down and dirty” — for only $425.

Online reviews: Pay attention to more than just the star rating
