When I was thinking about fashion disasters this week, I thought that I would see what I could find from other countries, as well as the USA. Bad fashion has a language all its own and speaks crystal clear, without saying a word.
I’m starting off in Italy, where beautiful design is as part of their heritage as is delicious food and find wine. However, this man does not fit the bill. I can understand the crisp white trousers with matching shirt, blue plaid jacket and solid necktie, but they lose me at the accessories. He might have been able to get away with the bright green Nikes, but having some silver wafers strung together to make a shawl doesn’t do a thing for me at all.
Next, I’m moving on to Britain, whose nobility has been tarnished by letting this man loose in the streets. Even though stripes are very “in” these days, they do not work here. The busy look of the shirt pattern is equally as disturbing as the short-shorts and the bedroom loafers below it. Please call The Queen and have him thrown in the clink until he swears to never wear this outfit again!
Last, but not least, I have a fashion disaster from our own backyard. Steven Tyler has always been known for his eccentricity, but this look is totally a crime. I can see the graphic T and even the semi-fashionable beach sandals, but the floppy straw hat and vintage striped bloomers really take the cake! It makes me wonder if his sexy, young fiancée moved the blanket while he was off for a walk. “Keep looking Steven. She’s around there somewhere!”
