8 fashion fails that will make you shake your head

The saying goes that the clothes make the man. But in the age of social media, the clothes make the meme.

For a culture obsessed with checking ourselves out in the mirror, we are still very capable of incredibly embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions. But one person’s fashion faux pas is our chuckle of the day. What follows are pictures of clothing fails that really missed the markโ€”but really made our days in the meantime.

Here are a few of the highlights (or should we call them lowlights?):

1. Words Matter

When you want to wear a shirt with words on it, be sure to do a few things first.

First of all, check your placement:

Because not all male musicians with long, blonde hair look identical. We swear:

My dad’s in Bangkok and sent me a picture of this rare Nirvana shirt he found. from funny

6. Remember, Not All Large Exotic Animals Are The Same

Close… but not quite.

Walmart never fails to fail


7. And Don’t Forget To Use The Mirror!

Before you step out on the town, take a quick peek in a mirror. You know, just in case Will Ferrell is popping out of your cardigan in a terrifying manner:

Couldn’t work out why I was getting so many odd looks while shopping this afternoon….. Then Got home & noticed Will Ferrell peeking out of my Cardigan from funny

8. And Maybe Check Your Backside, Too:
