It’s not exactly a profound insight to say that Justin Bieber is sartorially adventurous. He is the guy, after all, who wrapped an entire pack of wild coyotes around him last winter. In L.A. When it was probably 75 degrees out. And his latest stab at fashion trendsetting is no less of a head-scratcher.
Walking along the beach yesterday in Rio De Janeiro, the Biebs apparently got a little toasty. But rather than, say, hike up the legs of his ill-advised sweatpants (note to all beach-goers, they’re called sweatpants for a reason), he elected to hike up the hem of his tank top all the way to his chest, and thus create an impromptu crop top.
Is this a thing? A whole new way to wear a shirt? We’ve considered the issue deeply and come to the conclusion that it is not. Sorry Bieber, but we’re calling this another swing and a miss. You keep at it, though, buddy. One day you’ll get there.
