London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's this Friday's weekly look at commuters spotted on the London Underground who are to quote Louis Walsh of X Factor "taking a style and making it their own", or are slaves to a current trend regardless or whether or not it looks good on them.

St Patrick's Day Shenanigans

Speaking of Louis Walsh, last Sunday was the official London celebrations of St Patrick's Day - even though it is actually St Patrick's Day today. There seemed to be a trend of wearing large hats. Some with shamrocks:

Some with a Guinness Theme with a shamrock shape just to rub it in

However my favourite was this girl with very low slung jeans with an Irish flag wrapped round her

St Patricks Low Slung

Bird Flu Hat

One from South West Trains, but this woman clearly had something against our feathered friends or perhaps it was some strange way of trying to ward off bird flu

Twiggy Trousers and Fishnets

I'm not really sure if these were Twiggy Trousers or Twiggy Shorts (the cropped trouser worn by Twiggy in the M&S campaign which revived the ailing store's sales), either way regular readers know my opinions on fishnet tights and when worn with Twiggy Trousers, or Shorts, I personally don't think it's a great look

21st Century Girl

It's the metallic bags AGAIN, but she had a nice 21st century twist with them here as she was scribbling away on her palm pilot electronic notebook thingy

Metallic Bag & Hand Held Thingie

I quite like the way the bag strap round her wrist looks like a handcuff!

Platform UGGs

The week wouldn't be complete without seeing someone in some UGG boots or pretend UGG boots. These ones were particularly err....attractive with a platform!

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.
