Style.com published a feature today called “The Conversation,” by Maya Singer, which aims to “ask the questions on everyone’s lips” in the days leading up to NYFW. You know, questions like “Are you sick of prints yet?” and “What’s the point of Fashion’s Night Out?” and the one we’ve personally been asking ourselves all year long, “Is lesbian chic here to stay?”
Yes, it seems that, unbeknownst to us, lesbianism has become a trend akin to mixed prints and the credibility of Katie Holmes. Or as Style.com so aptly puts it, “Lesbians! They’re everywhere.” Why? Gay guys, der. Writes Singer,
“Perhaps it means that in an industry stuffed with attractive young women, a few more of them may start dating each other. (Seriously: Trying to catch a straight man in fashion is like trying to catch a rainbow.)”
Why didn’t we know that going lesbian was a trend before this piece? So much time spent wasted searching for straight men in the fashion world, when, in reality… compromising our sexual preference would’ve been more preferable sartorially! When I do my fall shopping this weekend, I’m looking specifically for some leather oxblood booties, a wool swing coat, and a super hot lesbian model girlfriend. And that’s that.
