London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's Friday's regular look at our slaves to fashion on the Tube or people with their own unique style spotted on the underground.

Despite the ridiculously hot weather I haven't really spotted anyone wearing their underwear as outerwear - which can happen with some women in the summer time. However there a definite nod to the high temperatures with the three pictures below.

Why not wear shorts

There's the tattered jean look and then there's jeans which as so torn apart you may as well just rip the bottom of them off

Why not wear shorts?

Still she has the legs to just about carry this look off.

Pink Penguin Pumps

Pink Penguin Pumps

I actually really like these and hopefully there was a sense of irony of wearing penguins when the temperatures has been in the high thirties most of this week.
This person's feet must have been quite hot in the socks though. But does pump/Vans/Converse wearing mean that you have to wear socks to stop your feet from sticking to your footwear?

Parisian Fashion Victims

Last time I went to Paris I tried desparately to spot some Metro victims. But the Parisians were all remarkably chic. However the girls below made it onto this post only because I marvelled as to how the one going for the patent leather French maid look managed to walk in those boots.

Le Metro Fashion Victims

Stripy tights girl as also in "Goth on a summer holiday" mode but her boots didn't look quite as difficult to walk in.

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.
