Hobo or Homo?
Did I miss the memo on what’s fashionable this year or something? When I walk around the Fan in Richmond, I feel like I have stepped into hoboville. Over-sized tanks, small, tight shorts, acid wash shirts, neon colors, ankle boots and vegan shoes seem to be all the trend right now. This look is represented in gays dressing like they just woke up, rolled out of bed, had three PBRs, and then walked out on the street. Colors don’t match, sunglasses came from a bad episode of “The Fresh Prince of Bell Air,” clothes aren’t fitted, and hairstyles look to be done by blind monkeys. The purpose of this trend is to stand out, make a statement, and be non-compliant to high fashion.
Where did this trend come from anyway? It came from big retailers like Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and H&M, among many others. Celebrities were wearing these fashions about two years ago and continue to wear them to this day. What some may think is an expression of individuality and independence turns out to be following the current trends that big corporations intend for us to follow. The problem is not with supporting fashion trends but the way that people execute them. Celebrities and models who have this look and make statements about uniqueness have a team of professionals that cater to their every need. Normal people clearly don’t have access to some of these resources so therefore their “look” might end up more like a tragic hobo.
