London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's my regular end of the week at commuters spotted on the London Underground who could be considered to be somewhat fashionably challenged. It's often people who have slavishly followed a fashion trend regardless of whether or not it looks good on them. However, this week it's a couple of women who seem to be challenging the realms of good taste.

Leopard Skin Jacket and White Shoes

I know it's remarkably cruel to say this, but I will say it anyway and hope that God forgives me, but just how much does this woman look like a lady of the night. I actually took it on the way into work one morning, so it's not as if she was coming home from a club (or perhaps she was and had a very, very good night!)

Leopard Skin and White Shoes

I particularly like the black footless tights/leggings thing going on with the white high heels.

Deckchair Shoes

I'm starting from the bottom up here. There's few occaisions when these shoes would work. On a hot sunny beach perhaps. Or walking round a Mediterranean city, but not standing on a cold Tube platform in West London at the end of January

Deckchair Shoes

Now if we pan out we can see the whole outfit:

Pink Furry Coat, Combat Bag and Deckchair Shoes

I'm fairly speechless here. It's one of those times when someone is put in front of you and their outfit really defies description!

That's it for this week. The previous entry for London Underground fashion victims is here and all of them together can be seen on the following Flickr set.
