12 Reasons to Avoid This Summer Trend
The big trend for this summer would appear to be "America." Despite being warned, this 2013 summer would appear to be headed towards a full-fledged freedom-fueled flag fashion meltdown. I spend a lot of time perusing the Internet to locate trends and everywhere website I went visited, there was some sort of American flag article of clothing. I felt like I was in some kind of freedom nightmare from whence there was no escape. In America, you may not always be able to burn a flag, but you can sure as hell wear one. If you feel compelled to participate in this summer pseudo-hipster-ironic trend, than by all means do so, but not like this. Never like this.

Just because you call it "reclaimed" doesn't mean it isn't ugly.
12. When Wearing the Flag Just Isn't Enough
Stick these puppies on your fingernails and let freedom ring.
