London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

After a bit of a break it's the final fashion victims of the year. Most Fridays I take a look at commuters on the Tube who're following a particular trend, taking astyle and "making it their own" or who could generally be considered erm ..... eye catching.

Zig and Zag Boots Return

We've seen a lot of these boots over the year and it never ceases to amaze me that grown women want to wear boots that look like
Zig and Zag.

Zig and Zag's Native American cousins

At least these were a different take on the Zig and Zag look

Freaky Tights

I've still not been able to work out what is going on with the tights here. All I know is that they made my eyes hurt.

Colour Co-ordinated?

Finally, to end with a guest shot. It's great how a number of you have risked getting lamped to snap victims for me. So I must thank Chris "Awkward" McKenna for this shot of a lady with a love of colour. Just a shame that the colours are all competing wildly against each other.
My Eyes, My Eyes

Chris says "The photo doesn't show the leggings ended at mid-thigh to show tan-coloured socks and black ballet-style shoes." I'm kind of pleased about that actually.

Eagle eyed Chris managed to spot that she was wearing a little Legoman brooch and took a close up of it:

That's it for this year with the victims. The previous victims can be found here and the complete picture gallery can be seen on the following Flickr set.
