If you thought that mom jeans and jeans with random clear knees were out there, you probably swallowed your words when Vetements teased its “bare butt” jeans. As the name hints at, the cheeky jeans expose a bit of bum and, erm, crack. Many of us thought/hoped that they would a one-of-a-kind piece and not infiltrate denim like boyfriend and skinny jeans. However, ASOS is now selling its own version with its “open back” jeans.
The e-tailer already sells ASOS FARLEIGH High Waist Slim Mom Jeans in Washed Black with Bum Rips ($56) but this is another cheeky look. The ASOS High Waisted Straight Leg Jeans with Open Back ($60) feature a cutout on the back, hence the “open back” name.
From the front, they look like your average pair of mom jeans complete with cropped legs, a high waist and even a belt. When you turn around, you get the surprise on the back with a semicircular cutout and a very large belt loop going up the middle.
Unlike some other risque styles, the Open Back Jeans aren’t quite as cheeky because the cutout stops just before any cheek or crack is revealed. However, we’re not sure what would happen if you bend over.
If you’re looking to try out the style, team them with a crop top or bra top to show off the rear cutout. Because if you’re rocking a pair of open back jeans, you probably want people to know that you are.
