Jack Dorsey’s footwear evolution: An investigation

At the last real day of CES (before Kanye showed up and tried to make the vacant halls of Thursday a “thing”), Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey held a public discussion to clue us all in on his efforts to make Twitter better.

But hey! Forget the hate speech, Nazis, account-muting, and general directionlessness of Dorsey’s social media devil child for a sec. What the people really wanted to know about were Jack’s SHOES.

What are those shoes @jack? #CES

7 of 2018’s worst fashion trends

2018 was a year for bad takes, but also for pretty awful fashion trends. 

The ’90s revival has been fun, but let’s leave the aughts in the aughts. This year saw a resurgence in horrors like low-rise jeans, boot cuts, and the most disastrous of all, Uggs. And in addition to reviving trends that we wish had stayed in the early 2000s, 2018 saw a slew of new terrible trends, too. 

Here are seven fashion trends of 2018 that just shouldn’t exist. 

1. Boot cut jeans

So tumblr can get rid of porn but we still can’t get rid of the bootcut?
