GREEN TIPS
Staying Green with Spring Fashion

Spring is officially here and it is time to clean out your closet and think of becoming environmentally friendly. Going green has never been easier to do since international fashion giant H&M unveiled their new clothing line and service, entitled H&M CONSCIOUS. Customers can bring their old clothes into an H&M location to have them reused, reworn, or recycled. In return for their old clothes, customers receive a voucher for 15% off an item of their choice for each bag they bring. Customers are only allowed to bring in two bags of clothing per day.

Skinny Jeans May Be Bad for Your Health

It’s been a pretty bad news week for hipsters and scene kids. First the news dropped that hairstyles that cover one eye might probably make that eye lazy over time. Now a slightly predictable knowledge bomb has finally dropped, and it affects, well, just about every fashion sub-culture. The big newsflash? Skinny jeans may not be great for circulation and may cause painful leg problems.


In a recent interview with ABC News, Dr. Karen Boyle revealed the not uncommon problems wearers of skinny jeans were encountering. Numbness and pain were high among them. She broke down the problem fairly simply:

GADGETS
The Clothing Store Body Scanner

This isn’t a picture of airport security measures making their way into our malls. The 3D body scanner parked outside of a clothing store is there to map out a person’s exact measurements. Think of it as a tailor that uses lasers. Bodymetrics’ new 3D scanner may be the future of clothing shopping. Because different brands tend to size clothing differently, especially women’s clothing, it was a process of trial and error to find the right fit in stores. Those buying online would have to compare size charts and guess at the right size before ordering.
