Troll so hard

ELLE Magazine Calls Timberlands A New Fashion Trend

Ooops they did it again! Remember when ELLE magazine got people in an uproar for getting their Columbus on and dubbing baby hair and cornrows a “new trend”???

Well the woman’s weekly got SLAMMED on Twitter Tuesday for a story where they dubbed Timberland boots (which have been around FOREVER) the next big thing since “cool girls” like baby North West are wearing them.


Last year, Adidas’ Stan Smith sneaker was the throwback shoe that was everywhere. The progression from casual sneaker to must-have item was fast and furious. Last summer, it was the beloved hippie sandal, the Birkenstock, that was resurrected by the fashion pack. This season, I predict a similar ascent to fashion greatness for the classic Timberland boot. Here’s why: All cool girls are wearing Timbs, from Cara Delevingne to Rihanna to Gwen Stefani. (And it’s no coincidence that they all hang out, either—cool begets cool. I’m not saying she’s not cool, but Taylor Swift has never been photographed in a Timberland.) Anyway, now that stylish babies North West and Blue Carter have been spotted in Timbs—and they just learned how to walk—I know that they’re about to explode. They. Are. Happening. And if you don’t believe me, here’s proof. Click through the coolest girls in their Timbs and then tell me you don’t want a pair.

The writer of the piece, a black woman named Danielle Prescod, responded to the criticism via Twitter. and emphasized that she knew that the footwear was a thing of the past.

Despite that, Twitter proved once again that jokes are greater than facts and ripped into ELLE relentlessly for their latest possible attempt at trolling.
