It’s called social distancing gear and it’s the latest fashion trend!  🙌

With my Hip sidekick, Stetson, always on the go for Instagram Takeover Tuesdays and busy taking photos & videos in numerous stores, I couldn’t think of a better person to test out this new social distancing gear for you.

Plus, we all know him for his great sense of humor so who could possibly be more suited than him to test out this viral fad?! 🤔

All jokes aside… this is one fashion trend that’s all business. 🙌

Imagine having your very own personal rearview mirror to make sure people aren’t infringing on your personal space! 🤩

While in line at the store…

Or walking your dog…

Or when a deal snatcher is trying to sneak in and grab that last item on the shelf you’re already reaching for.

Well, no more, my friends! 👏

Now, you can have your very own social distancing gear complete with a handy over-the-shoulder mirror, “Social Distancing Champion” t-shirt (which goes with just about anything in your closet), and a whistle.

Because, when someone’s near… it’s time to make yourself clear. 😏

In addition to wearing this mirror on your shoulder or near your heart (just like your passion for social distancing) this gear is also super versatile! Whether you attach it to yourself or strap it right on your Target cart, the options are endless and the creepers will be few and far between. 🙌

Wanna know where to buy this fashion faux pas?!

Happy April Fools, Hip2Savers! 🤣

While we realize COVID is no joke, this gear totally is! However, if you find this news about this fake fashion trend to be pretty disappointing that it’s not real, we’ve still got your back friends. You can shop Stetson’s social distancing gear below:

No matter what you wear… stay safe, friends!
