A recent article in the Wall Street Journal says tacos are a fashion trend. Tacos are now plastered on shirts, hats, and pants. Anything you can wear, you name it. Mondo Rayo is Texas’ top taco journalist and co-author of The Tacos of Texas.

Rayo says if you scroll through pictures on Instagram, or hashtags on Twitter, you’ll come across numerous examples of taco-obsessed attire, which are often more expensive than you might expect. He says today’s people are in fact ‘all about that taco life.’

What you’ll hear in this segment:

–How tacos went from restaurant staple to fashion statement

–Is the taco trend cultural expression or cultural appropriation

–How does the clothing fit into a ‘taco life’
