Tube Fashion Victims Week 3

London Underground victims of fashion

It's that time of the week again when I look at some
great fashion victims I've seen over the week on the Tube. As usual there were so many to choose from, I've selected the best below:

Lavender Printed Corduroy Suit

I know she's an old lady, but she was clearly trying to look hip and trendy with this natty little suit. Quite what she's doing on the Docklands Light Railway in the rush hour was beyond me too, but she gets full marks for this fetching ensemble:

Just Gay Enough?

Also on the DLR I sat opposite a guy who I think was clearly too old to be wearing button badges. But I know a number of you like them. He was clearly in touch with his feminine side too if the fur collared raincoat was anything to go by and the "Just Gay Enough" shoulder bag with the lavender trim. To top it off, he was reading The Secret History by Donna Tartt to show his literary side

Just Gay Enough?

She's a slave to her feet

Well this poor girl was, with plasters nicely peeping out form the top of her shoes to protect where some shoes had been rubbing:

Gold Trainers, Green Socks

Another shoe wearing error. Horrible metallic trainers mixed with bright green socks and white trousers. At least she didn't have metallic handbag:

What look shall I go for?

This woman going up the escalators at Tottenham Court Road, couldn't make up her mind. There's the trilby hat look. Then there's sort of weird cowboy influenced riding boots. None of which went with the tweed skirt:

Kinky red boots

At Bank station I saw a poster for the new film Kinky Boots,

and then just on the other side of the platform a woman tottered along wearing a similar pair. Very spiky, very red and she even had some cropped Twiggy trousers to go with them
