Yay, it's Friday, yay, I'm back in the UK (loving the freezing temperatures after sunny CA, let's see what "frost on the line" excuses the Tube have as it's bound to have caught them by surprise - unless they are using the railway's magic de-icers). So it's time to spot this week's people on the London Underground or rail in London who are victims to fash-e-on. The pictures were taken over the last two to three weeks as we missed a week while I was away.
Let's start with some people who are trying to brave the elements. Remember faces are blurred or not shown to protect the victims' identities.
This man is clearly expecting this weekend's predicted snow, with his thin jacket being countered with some headgear that Sherpa Tensing would be proud of.
Also loving the perspective on this picture, as he kindly emphasised the thickness of the hat for me
Red, red and more red
I sort of think this woman has a gone a bit over the top in the red colour co-ordination. I know it must be hard being "a Ginger" (apologies to Anthony, Mags and Liz and any other ging'ers, whether natural or by design!!!) It must be difficult finding colours that go with your brilliant Titian hair. But do you really think that you would wear boots, a handbag, shawl and remarkably strange shorts to match your hair colour?
Tooo much colour matching here!
Casual Smart - Combat and Court shoes
Not sure why this woman decided to mix the causual combat skirt and track suit top with the pointy purple kitten heeled shoes and the diamond etched black opaque tights. It's too completely different looks if you cut her in two (from the calves down!)
BTW is it me, or hasn't this woman got large hands compared to the rest of her body?
Sandals and socks
I don't care how cold the weather is. Sandals and socks are soooooo, soooooo, wrong!
UPDATE - You might want to check out the tights of the red shoed woman sitting next to him - unfortunately the picture was really blurry as I was so disturbed by shoe and sock man than I only saw red shoed woman's hideous two toned tights as I was about to get off the tube. Hence the rubbish picture.
Two pictures now to illustrate when going designer works and when it doesn't. I love this woman's pointed sleeves on her camel coloured coat, it's a nice design detail that is slightly pantomimish, but I think it works really well
Whereas this designer look doesn't:
The guy wearing this was also wearing sunglasses! (Sunglasses? On the Underground? At night? In November? - I think you see where I'm coming from) A true fashion victim who looks as though he's leaned against some of Banksy's more rubbish graffiti!
However, I know this jacket with words on it, is not as remotely bad as this number, spotted a fair while back:
Nothing can top that and I'm still laughing at Mags' brilliant comment at the time: "Off White jacket - I have no words. Unless someone with some black paint stood behind him on the Tube and painted it on..."
And finally. Major echoes of Little Britain going on here. We have the great chav fashion as often demonstrated by Vicky Pollard - the high pony tail, the hideous chavvy belt and the great tracksuit top/hoodie with, possibly her name, "Lou", on the back:
