50 Cringeworthy Fashion Fails We Can’t Believe People Didn’t Notice

Published

on

Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.

Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.

Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:

1. Brown logo on white shoes

In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.

2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress

This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.

3. When you accidentally stepped on something

This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.

4. Undecided

Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.

5. The letter “G”

There’s nothing wrong with being gay. However, if you are seriously working on showing support to your team, you might want to find another way to do that.

Save
Source: Reddit

6. Wrong idea

For an introvert, you might find this shirt uncomfortable. It’s like whoever designed it clearly doesn’t know what introverts are like.

Save

7. The crotch

The crotch on these pants doesn’t look like it’s intentionally designed that way. Otherwise, why is it totally misaligned?

Save
Source: Reddit

8. Lost

Is this in New York or is this in London? I guess the designer is quite as confused as we are.

9. Your Saturday sweater

This sweater’s design is actually cute. Just make sure you don’t pull it taut like that or else, Saturday becomes Turd day.

10. At a candy shop

This is a children’s shirt in a candy shop. It might look harmless but the sexual connotations are quite disturbing.

Save

11. The irony

The way this shirt is marketed is quite confusing. Should you not iron it because it doesn’t look wrinkly or should you not iron it because it’s designed to look wrinkled?

12. The saggy bunny ears

There could have been a better spot for those bunny ears. The way they are sagging at those points looks a bit weird.

13. When you want to look sick

Even if your favorite color is purple, I don’t think you should get these tights. They can make you look like you’re covered in bruises.

Save

14. No, thanks.

This is probably not the best design to have on your swimsuit. Apart from that it’s a children’s character, the theme creates a different connotation.

15. A practical jacket?

This jacket’s design is a bit spooky. It’s like something you’d wear if you’re planning to rob a bank or if you’re aiming to look like a snowman.

Save

16. Is that even a donut?

Without the label, no one would think that it’s a donut. It looks more like someone’s backside.

Save

17. Buy what?

You’ll have to take a closer look for you to actually understand what this shirt is trying to say. The image at the bottom is a glass and the text is supposed to mean “shot”.

Save

Source: Reddit

18. That “part”

The dress would look nicer if the bottom part wasn’t designed that way. It forms something you can only find in men.

Save

19. Nothing sexual here.

This is a wrestling patch. Despite what it looks like, there’s nothing sexual there.

Save

20. The popping shoes

These shoes can make it easier and safer for you to walk on smooth surfaces. The only issue is the popping sound they make with each step.

Save

21. Just spell it

Using images to replace a letter can make a design look extra nice. However, you just have to make sure that the image actually looks like the letter. Otherwise, you’ll end up making something like this one.

22. Look closely

This shirt is empowering. I’m just hoping that whoever made it counted the fingers before releasing it.

Save

23. Quite distracting

There are dresses that shouldn’t be worn during formal interviews. This is one of those dresses.

Save

Source: Reddit

24. Crappy design

If you ever pooped on yourself by accident, this is the dress that’ll save your day. On a regular day, however, I think it’s best to avoid this dress and this design.

Save

25. What if you missed the front?

If you are going to issue a warning, it’s best to keep it all in one area. That way, you won’t look like you are actually encouraging a negative behavior like this one.

Save

Source: Reddit

26. It’s not what you think.

If you’re going to wear a shirt with beads on, think twice about wearing a jacket over it. You might end up looking like this and it’s awkward.

Save

27. Hood on or off

This is the type of jacket you wouldn’t want to wear with the hood off. It sends the wrong message if you don’t put the hood on.

Save

Source: Reddit

28. Emo?

Back then, this look was a hit among teenagers. Now, it’s something a lot of adults regret and it’s not hard to see why.

Save

29. Not edgy

This look would have been better if she colored her hair completely. With just a few colored areas, it looked weird and awful. It’s like someone spilled paint on her head.

Save

Source: Reddit

30. All black

In theory, wearing black will make you look slimmer and classier. I guess this photo proves that theory wrong.

Save

Source: Reddit

31. Those eyes

Wearing a black eyeliner used to be a hit among teenage boys before. It’s a good thing that the phase ended already.

Save

Source: Reddit

32. When you can’t decide which hairstyle to wear for the day

This hairstyle is quite confusing. It’s like she can’t decide if she wanted dreadlocks or straight hair. It’s a good thing her hair and shirt match.

33. The 2000 glam

This photo summarizes the fashion trend of 2000. Those glossy lips, orange glasses, and twisted hair are just on point.

Save

34. Those eyebrows and lips

It looked like this guy got confused about colors. Pink should go on the lips and black should go on the eyebrows- not

Save

Source: Reddit

35. Every single day

Back in 2003, this guy used to leave the house looking like this. It’s a good thing that it’s 2020 now.

36. In love with bracelets

This 15-year-old had an immense love of pony bead bracelets. He’s nearly filled his entire arm and neck with them.

37. They thought they were cool.

There are so many things going on with these kids’ styles. From their hairstyles to their jackets and pants, it’s a good thing everything’s over now.

Save

Source: Reddit

38. Her formal wear

Believe it or not, this kid wasn’t going to a Madonna concert. This was her outfit for the father-daughter church dance in her area.

Save

Source: Reddit

39. Those baggy pants

Almost everyone in the 90s used to wear those baggy pants. They weren’t just cool back then but they’re quite comfortable, too.

Save

Source: Reddit

40. Recycled dress

This wasn’t a phase. She just decided that it was a good idea to wear a dress made of trash bags and duct tapes.

Save

Source: Reddit

41. White face

This woman has just discovered white face powder. It certainly took her style to a whole new level.

Save

Source: Reddit

42. New male fashion

It’s hard to determine what the designer of this shirt is trying to achieve. This new male fashion certainly looks weird.

Save

Source: Reddit

43. Would you wear it?

This shirt looks like it has been cut in half and sewn together without checking the alignment of the stripes. Intentional or not, it’s hard to believe that anyone would buy it.

Save

Source: Reddit

44. Wrong orientation

Ariana Grande would have been proud of this shirt, if only her face wasn’t printed upside down.

Save

Source: Reddit

45. A sweater for kids

Someone didn’t think hard while designing this. It looks more like “hell” instead of “hello”.

Save

Source: Reddit

46. The new fashion

These hats prove that in today’s fashion, stains and tears are cool. You won’t have to worry about keeping your hats clean anymore.

Save

Source: Reddit

47. This is high fashion.

It’s hard to understand why someone would buy this sweater. It’s even harder to understand why a sweater in this condition would cost nearly a thousand dollars.

Save

Source: Reddit

48. Crazy expensive shoes

These shoes seriously looked like they’ve been picked up from the garbage can. You can clearly see hot glue and duct tape on it!

Save

Source: Reddit

49. When fashion makes no sense

Sometimes, it’s hard to understand fashion. It can be as confusing as this zipper that has no pocket.

Save

Source: Reddit

50. Speechless.

These pants are crazy. They are painful not just in the eyes but in the brain, too.
