Weekend Wit: Can We Really Call This Fashion?
Fashion: is it art we proudly present on our bodies? Is it simply items that we wear to protect us from the elements or to cart our stuff around? Or perhaps it’s something in between? Today’s Weekend Wit takes a look at what constitutes as fashion. From weird and probably not so wonderful designs to basic home made essentials, we’ve got a collection that will leave you gob smacked at what some people consider fashionable.

Some aren’t exactly practical or even very attractive, however all of these items fall under the heading of fashion. Perhaps some of you will be inspired to create some crazy clothing or accessories of your own after this; because from the looks of it, all you really need is some imagination.
Are they going for the over-sized sunglasses look? Perhaps it’s to protect their eyes from all of that colour if they ever catch a glimpse of their reflection.
How about we call this one ‘the plumbers crack dress’.
This is one way of turning a seemingly normal outfit into something freaky. WTF is that?
Ugly, but original. I can’t say I’d race out and go buy a pair, however.
A brilliant outfit for people who aren’t into hugging.
Umm…. Jaws teeth and Gene Simmons tongue – what they are doing attached to this dress, we’ll never really know.
Should we assume her favorite movie is The Lion King?
This string coat is finished off perfectly by the silky green bag strategically placed over the head. Don’t you agree?
Sorry, but I am clueless at what this outfit is supposed to be or represent? At first I thought it may have been inspired by one of those suction cup bath mats… But that thing on her head has just thrown me.
Look what happens when you shuffle around social convention: you end up looking like a complete idiot. I know that may sound harsh, but I’d bet these shoes would definitely look better on her feet.
Thankfully, she’s a smaller breasted woman. On a woman with significantly more up top, these love hearts would look like pasties (you know, those things strippers wear to cover their nipples?).
How ingenious! A handbag made out of hula hoops.
This looks like Alien meets I dream of Jeannie. For those too young to understand what I mean, I strongly suggest that you look it up – this outfit will become startlingly obvious.
I can picture the sales pitch now… “Just in case your wedding day turns to crap, you’ll be prepared!”
The perfect outfit for the lady who loves the limelight. However, upon entrance she will need to walk in sideways.
I can see what happened here: this designer had absolutely no idea what to make out of this fabric. Therefore, they selected a model specifically with big, boofy red hair. Size wasn’t a factor because they just draped the material around her. Not exactly remarkable, but it does stand out nonetheless.
Inspired by the bubble boy.
At least these peaks give her some shape.
The ‘testicle dress’: for those with the balls to wear it. Sorry, my mistake – no balls necessary. It comes with its own.
Lastly, fashion is pain ladies. But we all knew that!
