There are few things the internet loves more than a good ‘ol meme and, tbh, same. In fact, we love our appropriated pics so damn much that online search platform Lyst just released its official ‘2018 Year In Fashion Report’ and dubbed internet memes one of the top style trends of the year.
And who can blame us, right? I mean, if there’s an opportunity to mercilessly mock something then there’s a widely recognised tendency, nay, obligation to take hold of it with both hands and RUN.
Unsurprisingly, fashion offers endless opportunities for the interwebs to flex its satirical wit.
From nifty Photoshop jobs and pop culture happenings to hilarious reactive runway shots, here we round up the most glorious fashion memes to grace the internet in 2018.
First cab off the rank is this glorious comparison of Cardi B leaving the scene of her scuffle with Nicki Minaj:
