Have you ever wondered how you could instantly adopt the Bushwick aesthetic without having to go to the Urban Outfitters in Williamsburg? We here at The Burning Bush want to help. The only insider tip you’ll ever need to make “millennial” fashion all your own is this: Take your grandparents’ clothes…right off their body.
In doing this, not only are you showing your rough-hewn edge, but you’re also skipping the part where your parents donate their clothes to a thrift store in the wake of their death anyway. Thus, ripping grandma and grandpa’s clothes off saves time for your parents and money for you. Even more convenient is that grandparent clothes are androgynous enough to look chic no matter what gender you are.
California transplant Celeste Incest swears by this fashion advice, insisting, “They don’t need clothes anyway. Shit, they barely got a pulse. As long as I don’t block their view of Wheel of Fortune, snatching their threads ain’t no issue.” Another fresh resident to the Bushwick scene, Olly Oxen, arrived wearing his grandfather’s vintage Yves Saint Laurent trench coat and was immediately embraced by the community.
So the next time you’re visiting Long Island or Ohio or whatever godforsaken town you crawled out of, make sure to use that quality time with your grandparents to your advantage. No one’s got the genuine Bushwickian style like they do.
