A tree gets chilly in Brooklyn! So some hipsters put sweaters on them. Of course they did. I don’t find the South Slope tree’s little knitted sweaters offensive – because noting that maybe it would be better to knit sweaters for the homeless seems as obvious as a hipster sticking a tree in a bright orange knit – but, I’m not really sold on it. I feel like there are probably better ways to accessorize trees. I mean, if you want to accessorize trees at all. But what? What? Some ideas:

Swimsuits. It’s a commentary on the bizarre expectations people have for the female form.

Hemp bracelets. Trees are hippies.

Black dresses. Everything likes black dresses.

Florals. They inspired that trend.
