Bandit Fashion Watch

Here's a fashion crime of a whole new kind. On May 16, these two men, now dubbed the "thong bandits," robbed a gas station in Arvada. For their caper, one man had donned a green thong, while the other wore a blue thong over his face. With so many cute thong patterns and styles out there, I think this is bandito fashion trend could really take off -- especially with the summer heat creeping up on us.

After all, why be hot and sweaty with your head stuffed in pantyhose when you can repurpose another woman's undergarment and be cool, colorful and collected?
