As a European, I find this extremely offensive (I'm not saying other people such as Americans wouldn't find it offensive but I think to us this is even much closer). It makes me think of two stories, one by my mom and one I experienced myself. My mom told me that when she was very young (early 20s) she went on a big road trip through the USA with the Greyhound bus. One day she was sitting on one of those busses with her best friend when right next to her, across the aisle, two guys were making a lot of stupid jokes about world war two and impersonating Hitler and the Nazis. My mom could also see that right in front of the two guys, an old woman was sitting and making a very hurt face. At one point, when the two guys were laughing especially loud again, the old woman finally turned around slowly, looked the two guys right in the eye and said with a trembling voice and in a strong, German accent "Listen you two: I have been imprisoned in the concentration camp Dachau for 4 years and I lost both my children and the big love of my life there. It's not something funny." As my mom told me, the guys just looked at the old woman completely baffled and speechless and they remained completely silent for the rest of the ride.
The story I experienced myself also happened to take place in America. When I was a teenager, I lived in the US as an exchange student for a year. At my high school was a guy who constantly tried to act cool but was in fact a very annoying and primitive kid. Besides me, there were two other exchange students, one of which was a German girl. One day, during lunch break, this stupid guy came to lunch in a homemade Nazi-uniform and thought it funny to mock the German exchange student girl, calling her "Hitler's granddaughter" and stuff like that. Instead of getting angry however, the girl started crying a lot and suddenly there was a big crowed of students rushing to her to comfort her and teachers pulling away this idiot. It later turned out that the German girl didn't just cry because she was offended in general but because her grandparents - contrary to what this stupid guy believed - hadn't been Nazis but they had actually been imprisoned and tortured by the Nazis and her grandpa had even been killed.
So to put it with the words of that old lady: it's not something funny. It makes me very angry when I see these girls wearing those uniforms and swastikas. If they had experienced the cultural aftermath of the holocaust, they wouldn't do that.9

It shows their lack of education about WWII and what little tact they have. I don't find nazi-anything "fashionable" but if someone wants to do it, go ahead, see how far it gets them. After they're done with this trend why not come up with an Auschewitz victim trend just to balance it out?
I personally dislike a lot of these dumb trends including this one, the don't judge me shit, anything tending these days is so childishly bad.3
