Fashion is supposed to be fun, which is why you see so many people these days wearing exactly what they please without much care for what other people think.
But while we support those who chose to dress for nobody but themselves, there are some fashion fads that are so obscure it’s hard not to be quizzical. One of these trends is unicorn armpits.
The past year has seen unicorns feature in the most unlikely of places, from food to fashion. The colorful trend has been what defined 2017 – a year that was otherwise pretty bleak.
The past year has also seen the third wave of feminism rise up and wash over the world, with the discussion surrounding equality between sexes louder than ever. Inspired by the presidential win of Donald Trump and the outrageous allegations against Hollywood elites such as Harvey Weinstein, women have begun to fight back.
These two movements combined has seen an explosion of bright colors saturating Instagram feeds and Pinterest accounts, as well as everyday life. From pretty pastels to neon rainbows, the trend was open to interpretation.
As women around the world relinquish the firm hold they have on their razors, the world is beginning to see body hair in a whole new way. Encouraged by celebrities such as Paris Jackson who comfortably paired her Dior gown with armpit fuzz at the MTV Video Music Awards, fluff became fashionable.
