If you've got $60, you, too, could look like an "influencer."   (Urban Outfitters)

(Newser) – Paying $59 for "a package of crap" is how the Verge describes the experience of buying Urban Outfitters' newest Halloween costume. The good news, though, if you pony up the cash for a pair of grayish leggings and "sports bra" (really a very short crop top with zero padding) is that you'll supposedly pass for a social media "influencer," though the Verge notes you'll still have to pay another $100 or so to buy the accessories to complete the look, like a long blond wig and Fila sneakers. Reaction is unsurprisingly snarky, with Teen Vogue noting Urban Outfitters has "jumped the shark." The magazine explains the look seems to be inspired by Kanye West's clothing line, which would explain why the model in the Halloween costume looks eerily like a Kardashian with a dye job.
