People on Twitter Just Went Off About How Annoying Crop Tops Are & It's So Cathartic

As the sun begins to shine and our campuses warm up, the designs available in stores tend to get a little… shorter. And this year, that adjective doesn’t just apply to the lower half of our outfits. The powers that be have decided that the look of this summer is Pooh Bear-chic. You can’t walk into a Forever 21 or H&M without being surrounded by half-size shirts and, frankly, Twitter isn’t having it — the whole world around.

Yesterday, Janelle Monáe dropped a female-directed, girl gang-centric music video for her feminist bop, “Pynk” – and this video is full of looks. From Janelle’s hot pink eyeliner to her structured dress with pink fur sleeves, the major style details are a serious statement.  She also wore vagina pants in the video, in case you didn't get the message about ~celebrating women~.
