Chinese Trend of the Day: It's Totally Cool to Have a Sprout Growing Out of Your Hair
China's fashion has grown in a greener direction compared to smog masks of yesteryear.
These days, all the hip kids/adults are putting plastic sprout clips in their hair.
The trend has taken over the streets of Beijing.
It's exactly how it sounds
The Bejinger was kind enough to translate a Sohu article which tries to explain the fashion:
[R]ather than a political comment on Beijing's stance towards pollution, the trend originates from an unspecified cosplay convention, after which time they became the latest hot way to maimeng (??), or act cute.
The trend seems popular with women of all ages
But guys seem all about it as well
They kind of look just like Pikmin, right?
If you don't know, Pikmin is a Nintendo series of games where those little guys are plucked out of the ground and use to build, destroy, create.
You can buy them at many stores and they're pretty cheap
Keep doing your thing, China. Y'all are cool.
