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.
Models shaking up the industry you definitely need to be following
Because fuck your beauty standards
by Cassandra Day
For much too long, the modeling industry has looked pretty much the same: Skinny, 18-year-old girls with shiny hair and little to no personality. The ‘super skinny’ trend gained traction in the general public, which created a wave of health concerns including eating and mental disorders, spurring the demand for a change. However, the industry…
No one’s impressed at your decision to not photoshop already-perfect models
Let’s ask for more out of ‘advocates’
by Una Dabiero
In the age of body positivity, being a body confidence advocate is cool. Magazines, brands, and celebrities have taken a stand against photoshop to prove their body-posi stance. And while the collective stand against completely unrealistic photographs is obviously a step in the right direction, we shouldn’t just take anti-photoshop advocacy on its face. Many brands…
