Top 70 Pop Culture Trends in May

From Politically Themed Runway Shows to Edible Chocolate Websites

— May 28, 2017 — Pop Culture
These May 2017 pop culture trends cover collaborative celebrity apparel launches, Disney-inspired makeup collections, interactive social cinemas, comic book character-themed whiskeys, and much more.

In correlation with the drop of the song 'Humble,' new merchandise was added to Kendrick Lamar's store. The graphic tees come in two variations and state "DAMN." on the front to mirror the tee that's worn by the rapper in various scenes of the music video.

Also featured in these May 2017 pop culture trends are the summer products that were added to Kim Kardashian's Kimoji store. Although the drop includes everything from bandannas to flasks, the most unique product is the large pool floatie that's made to resemble to socialite's backside.

Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen is gearing up to launch a collection with Becca Cosmetics, that will feature bronzers, blushes, highlighters and more so that consumers can get the perfect summer glow.
