There are a lot of musicians that become famous for their iconic fashion as well as their music...say The White Stripes or Johnny Cash. Then there are those bands who try to create a look and fail miserably. Sure they create a fashion statement , but it says all the wrong things. Mainly it says ‘NOOOO!’. Here’s a look at 8 bands with terrible style.
I think it’s cool to be N’Sync when you’re singing and when you’re amazing everyone with super-slick choreographed boy band moves. But there is nothing cool about being N’ Sync when it comes to wearing vinyl rain slickers on the red carpet. Especially in LA. Don’t get me started on the hair.
Bay City Rollers
I’m all for being proud of your Scottish heritage, just not when it epitomizes everything that was awful about 70s fashion. Pretty sure the freedom to dress like a pimped out rag doll wasn’t what William Wallace so valiently fought for.
Kris Kross totally made me Jump! I love that song. They also made me do a double take with their gimmick-y wannabe fashion trend....wearing your clothes backwards. It just looks like their mommies never taught them how to dress themselves.
Why chose one cheap tacky accessory when you can chose them all, am I right Poison? I’m kind of amazed I ever had a crush on CC DeVille. Wait, did I just say that out loud??
Insane Clown Posse
Call me crazy, but I’m just not a fan of coats that took one thousand rattlesnake skins to make. Or clowns. We’re all pretty much terrified of clowns at this point, right? I'd also like to take this opportunity to ask Juggalos not to call me a sh*thead on Twitter, which happens everytime I make a joke about ICP. Thanks Juggalos! The next Faygo is on me!
The ladies of TLC definitely got their act together at some point, but when they first hit the scene it was not good. It was about ten sizes too big and four colors too much. Also condoms are not meant to be worn as bling, ladies. Just sayin’!
Stripes are cool. I get it STRYP-er. But why would you want your band to look like a bunch of spandex-clad bumble bees? The best thing I can say about this look is that it totally pulls focus from those horrible 80s hairstyles. The worst thing I can say is bumblebee patterned junk bulges.
I’m not the biggest fan of adults dressing alike in general, but I’ll sometimes begrudgingly admit that the boys of 1D look kind of cute. Then I see them in matching hooded onesies and I take back evey nice thought I ever had about them.
What are some other bands with horrible stye? let me know @desijedeikin or in the comments below!
