Top Three Bad Holiday Fashion Sightings.
Tis the season for gaudy, perplexing, holiday-themed garb.
1. World Gym: Man, in his sixties and skinny, strolling the weights area in clingy red workout pants and a Santa hat.
2. Ferry Building: Man, in his fifties, wears a light brown work shirt adorned by a red, glittery tie, a bit too short and a bit too wide.
3. Tres Agaves: A group of men in their thirties and forties, accompanied by women, parade into the restaurant wearing the worst holiday sweaters you've ever seen. I don't know who dreamed up the theme for this type of gathering (maybe inspired by Bad Sweater Guy?), but my (Santa) hat is off to him or her.
Personal example: When I was in grade school I had a red and green plaid, pleated wool skirt that I saved to wear for the holidays. I LOVED it. If I remember correctly, it also had thin matching suspenders in the same material. I also had a small, knitted wreath pin that I liked to wear. It was green with a little red ribbon affixed to the top.
Have you worn or witnessed any special holiday ensembles?
