11 Quarantine Outfits Inspired By Latino Sayings That’ll Make You Laugh

Picking outfits to go to work or school wasn’t that easy but choosing what to wear during quarantine isolation comes with its own set of challenges. I want to lounge in comfy pjs but I know I’ll have to walk my dog five times a day, so I really can’t unless I’m okay with looking like a crazy person. Then, there’s the uncertainty of not knowing if my boss will want to video call me at any given moment. 

Luckily, mitúShop launched a collection dedicated to quarantine woes that features comfy attire with a side of cheeky commentary. Perfect for yourself and sweet enough to purchase as part of your care package for a loved one. 

Aguas Con El Virus Unisex Tee

¡Aguas! There’s a virus going around and this tee serves as a friendly reminder in case anyone has been living under a rock. 

If You Can Read This, Aléjate Unisex Sweatshirt

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends we stand at least six feet apart from each other but I say if you can read this, you’re too close.

Mamá says “mejor sola que mal acompañada” but we say “mejor sola que contaminada,” so tell bae to hold off and you can pick up where you left off pre-quarantine.

While Vicks might not be able to cure this pandemic, it always gives us a warm nostalgic feeling. This tee is a subtle reminder that things will get better. 

This Is My Quaran-tee Unisex Tee

If you’re like me and you don’t want to mix your regular clothes with what you’re wearing during quarantine, consider this your new official quarantine uniform tee. It’s extra soft and no one will question your wardrobe choice during video calls — even if you decide to wear this every day. 

Stay Home Unisex Tee

Wear this when you’re walking your dog and you’ll basically be doing community service at the same time as you remind everyone else THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO STAY HOME.

Quarantine Has Turned Me Into A Señora Tee

I thought Saturday mornings living at home were bad… until I had to face quarantine. I have never done so much cleaning in all my life. This shirt states I’m officially a clean queen.

Fashion consumers are calling out designer brands for their recent displays of Black imagery on their social media pages in light of the Black Lives Matter protests. Of course, representation is appreciated, but a recent post about “Shrill” actress Niccole Thurman is pointing out that such displays should not be treated as Fashion trends.

In a series of tweets shared with her Instagram page, Thurman held the fashion industry accountable.

Calling out the fashion industry for their past exclusion of Black people and people of color, Thurman tweeted a string of emojis, featuring white faces. Sparsely sprinkled into the white faces were a few images of Black emojis and other emojis representing people of color. Thurman captioned the image writing “every Fashion Instagram page looking like.”

Speaking about the fashion industry’s current display of Black models in their social feeds in relation to the global protests that have broken out across the country in response to the recent death of George Floyd. “Feel like this tweet will get me yelled at somehow, so let me just say I’m GLAD to see more beautiful black women in my feed,” Thurman followed up her tweet writing. “It’s just THEY’VE BEEN THERE. THEY’VE *BEEN* BEAUTIFUL. Why’re brands just now seeing them? Don’t think we’re not going to check in on you a month from now.”

Users on Twitter and Instagram were quick to applaud Thurman’s point.

Many people who saw Thurman’s emoji illustration agreed with its sentiment. “Yeees!! And every goddamn photographer (nature photographer aside) I follow probably frantically searched their picture archive for that one shot of a black model they have to post last week, like “Look! I’m good! I take pictures of black people once in a while!!” a user by the name of @LoveCrimeCat wrote in response to the tweet while another remarked that ‘It’s only a matter of time until they go back to regular programming. I hope not but for some of these brands, it’s all performance.’ 

Another user took the time to lambast the fashion industry for “It’s the truth. Half the time the clothes are cut to fit white model better. The only one who really had more models of color on their runways shows was people like Thierry Mugler before he became Manfred.”

In regards to this story, Mitú has reached out to Thurman and is waiting for a comment.
