London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's Friday's look at people who I've seen as slaves to fashion. This week is more of a reflection of fashion trends, as I didn't manage to spot any complete horrors this week - or rather the people who've gone out on a limb to take a style "and make it their own" - why hasn't Louis Walsh said that on Celebrity X Factor yet?

Tattered hems on jeans

Now I know a number of people who like this look (you know who you are!!!), but I personally don't see the point of deliberately buying jeans that you know are going to drag along the floor and look tatty. Perhaps those of you who wear your jeans like this would care to tell me!

Tattered Jeans

Trainers with peasant skirts

I think the peasant / gypsy skirt boho look is almost over, (at least I haven't seen pictures of Sienna Miller flouncing around in them lately) but I could be wrong. But surely if you're going to wear a very floaty summery skirt like this one, wouldn't you wear slightly different shoes.

Peasant Skirt and Adidas

They're not even Converses, but very heavy looking adidas trainers.

Cuffs and Tattoos

I really hate large tattoos. It's all very well looking like a Robbie Williams clone when you're a young muscular whipper snapper. But what's going to happen when a lot of these people reach their fifties and sixties? Personally I think they're going to look even worse on them than they do now.

Tattoo & Leather Cuff

Tattered knees and Metallic pumps

Just returning to the tattered jeans, this lady had gone for the worn knees approach. I don't quite know how you get your jeans to wear like this naturally. Perhaps you scrub the floors a lot - no idea!

Tattered Jeans & Metallic Shoes

She's teamed these with a pair of metallic ballet style pumps. Please, please, please can someone tell me when the metallic look is going away?

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.
