This new crop top from Urban Outfitters shows the crop top trend has gone too damn far
Hell is empty and all the devils are here
by Alex Wright
The crop top trend is officially over, and Urban Outfitters were the ones who put the final nail in the coffin.
Listed on the site for $16, the “Extreme Crop Tank Top Shrug” consists of nothing more than the neckline of a ribbed T-shirt. It’s basically an oversized necklace.

Normally, when a top is cropped to such an extent that it’s even smaller than a bra, it would be known as lingerie. At the most, maybe a bralette you could wear to the club for a night out. Not this top though.

Courtesy of Out From Under, Urban Outfitter’s exclusive brand, this is apparently part of their loungewear line. Because, yeah, this looks totally like the type of thing I want to wear when I’m having a sofa and Netflix chill day.

While the product description won’t tell you anything about why anyone would come up with an idea for a top like this, it does a least tell you how it should be worn.
Surprise: it should be layered. Apparently, it’s “the ultra-sexy way to layer”, cut above the chest “for the coolest layered look”. Which is good, considering it’s March and therefore cold outside. Even in this freakish warm weather, it’s too cold to go out in a bra and giant necklace.
The look I can imagine the creators picturing is probably the same as what’s on the website, where the model wears the ribbed tank over a black bra, styled with high-waisted jeans, and probably some fishnet tights thrown in for good measure.
The overall image, however, looks closer to how I look when I’m halfway through getting dressed and I have to quickly try and skip a song on Spotify. But each to their own, I guess.
In case you were wondering, this top could be yours for the great price of $16, but it has since disappeared from the UO website. I wonder why.

I’m a Glossier Girl, baby!
by Katie Way
Makeup is an excellent outlet for self-expression, and the only thing between me and get asked 10000 times a day why I'm so "tired." But what exactly can makeup reveal other than the desire to not look like an absolute dumpster fire? And what do your goals and preferences say about the way you do…
Sorry, but Kendall Jenner can’t model for shit
Maybe she’s just bad at listening to directions…
by Katie Way
Kendall Jenner is amazing at posing for the kinds of pictures that earn more than a million likes on Instagram. Because of her, I am seriously thinking about buying a pair of those tiny sunglasses even though that shit is gonna look dumb as hell on me. But frankly, it's come to my attention that…
ULTA resells dirty, used makeup returns, according to a former employee
‘We cleaned lipsticks with a Q-Tip’
by Caroline Phinney
It wasn't until now that I understood why I love Glossier so much. They're super aesthetic and their stores have cute, whispering employees in pink jumpsuits, but they're also really into packaging. Opening a new Boy Brow always feels like opening a box from the Apple store. But apparently not all beauty brands are as…
