This trend- originally the penchant of teenage hipsters, keen to break social protocol with their slightly sacrilegious get-up- has now broken into mainstream fashion. (Which I guess means that hipsters actually did like the craze "before it was cool". Who knew- the stereotype really does hold true!)
Anyway, take this top from high street clothes shop Urban Outfitters- plain black, with a leopard-print cross emblazoned across the front. What do you think? Sexy and cool in animal print, or plain old offensive and out of order? I'm not entirely sure...
OR... if you've already got more than enough christ-themed tshirts for the season, how about accessorising your look with this charming crucifix watch? A blue leopard print crucifix, this time- even more jazzy and mad than the tshirt. Once again, I'm not mad keen and I'm really not sure whether all these crosses in fashion is such a great thing.
I may not be a Christian, but I'm still not liking this trend. For me, non-religious people wearing Christian symbols, especially if they're not part of that religion anyway, kind of dilutes the whole message of the religon. Call me old-fashioned, but I think it's a little disrespectful...
But hey, being cynical is in my nature- I'm bound to dislike this trend. What do you guys think of this craze of wearing religious symbols all the time?
You already know what I think, so now I want to hear your opinion.
Comment below if you like the trend, and you're not offended by it at all- or maybe, like me, you think it can be a bit distasteful? Either way, I want to hear your thoughts on the issue!
