Urban Outfitters Insanely Released a Bloody Kent State Sweatshirt

Urban Outfitters is no stranger to scandal thanks to their outrageous, and at times, obscene clothing lines. They’ve had shirts with an insignia similar to the one that the Nazi forces obligated the Jewish people to wear in the labor camps during the holocaust. Then there was the shirt which had the words “Eat Less” on it. As you can imagine, this would upset a lot of parents who are trying to teach their daughters to love themselves the way they are. A lot of celebrities, like Sophia Bush, took to protesting Urban Outfitters’ insane idea to promote a shirt that basically encouraged eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia. But if you think that’s bad, just wait until I tell you about their latest clothing line drama. Most folks these days won’t remember this but in 1970, the Vietnam War was in full force and this angered many people, particularly students. Kent State University students in Ohio did what most students did in those days and they protested and retaliated. Unfortunately, on May 4th of that same year, things got out of hand and four students were killed by the National Guard. Now, forty plus decades later, the memory of that terrible moment has come back to haunt Ohio and in the sickest way possible. Urban Outfitters released a one-off sale of a vintage Kent State sweatshirt with what appears to be blood spatter. Of course, being a one-off sale means that only one person was able to get their hands on it. This customer is either into collecting rare items or they’ve watching The Walking Dead and Dexter for too long. So what would have happened if this bloody sweatshirt had been mass-produced? Would it have been popular or just downright creepy? Just imagine seeing someone walking down the street with a bloodied sweatshirt. You’d probably ask yourself “is that their blood” or “did they attack someone and their blood got on it?”. Chaos, am I right? Given that this bloody sweatshirt isn’t exactly a workplace friendly or any kind of place friendly item, it’s probable that the owner is going to save it as a collector’s item. It could even be used at a Comic Con Convention, a zombie walk, or a piece for a Halloween outfit. But given the nature of what the Kent State University sweatshirt represents, it would likely be in poor taste. Despite the controversy, most customers, especially teenagers, won’t even remember what this vintage sweatshirt represents. So it’s bound to be popular if nothing else to make heads turn. After all, there’s nothing that teenagers and young adults love more than attention and...

What’s Hot This Spring

What’s Hot This Spring

Winter might be upon us but Spring 2014 is right around the corner! Bundled up in layers and winter jackets and dreaming about warm weather and spring sundresses? We’re here to show you some of the hottest trends for Spring 2014. You can start dreaming of warmer weather and start shopping for these fashion must haves.  Start packing up your winter clothes and start breaking out your fringe boots, colorful pastel sundresses and more! Pastels. We’re not talking about Miami Vice pastel suits when we talk about pastels. You can wear pastels on your fingers with a cute nail polish or as your favorite hair accessory to your favorite clutch. Don’t be afraid of venturing outside the box and wearing pastel colored pants, blouses or coats either. You can pair your favorite color pastel shirt (I’m a fan of mint green) with cute jeans. The sky’s the limit or should we say rainbow? Sweaters. In addition to the ever popular crop top (will they ever go out of style?) light knit sweaters are not going anywhere. It doesn’t matter if it’s loud prints or bold and pastel colors, they are easy to build into your spring wardrobe.   “Tuxedo-Meets-Althetic-Striped Trousers”. It might sound a little strange but according to Glamour they will be all the rage this spring. Glamour says “the athletic stripe smartens up with tuxedo detailing on these sporty-meets-sophisticated tailored trousers. It’s really all in the styling. To keep the look modern but refined, opt for a streamlined silhouette in unexpected white (black is so traditional) and pair the pants with a casual non-button-down top”. We think this is one of the most fun spring fashion trends. Coats, collarless coats that is. While the bright blue sky and the newly blooming flowers may trick you into thinking it’s summer outside, the weather can still be a more than brisk. Layer on the collarless coat. You can wear them in whatever color or print you like, sometimes the louder the better.  Fringe, everything. Sometimes fringe can borderline on the tacky side if overdone but this spring, all bets are off! Fringing can be seen on almost anything in spring, from evening dresses, to crop tops, to purses, to necklaces. Fringe is in and isn’t going to be going anywhere. If you want to start out small or aren’t into too much fringe, collect small pieces, like a purse or a clutch.  While these might be the “trendiest” Spring fashion trends, there’s always a little leeway in the fashion world. You can mix and match these looks to make these trends uniquely yours....
