Have you ever been called out by friends or total strangers about something you were wearing?
It’s no fun at all!
But hey…it happens to the best of us…
Take a look at these folks who shared some roasts from the dreaded Fashion Police.
1. What’s your next case?
This is great.
I was wearing my super-fashionable short trench coat. My friend took one look at me wearing the jacket and said, “Where are we off to now, Columbo?”

2. Hahahaha. Wow.
Who does this?
I once ordered a taxi in Belfast for a night out. The driver pulls up to my house and just says “yer not going out like that. Go back in and change, I’ll turn off the metre.” I swear I was wearing normal jeans and a normal jacket.

3. Are you a cop?
You look like a cop…
I once had an uber driver ask me (wearing a nice pair of jeans and a smartish jumper) where I was off to
“Going on a date”
“You look like you’re an undercover policeman”

4. Bleached Prince.
Well, that wasn’t nice.
I’m in the U.S. but at university there was an Irish student in acting classes with me. I bought a purple suit for the opening of a play I directed. He took one look at me and said, “Who bleached Prince?”

5. Poor Muppets…
What did you do?!?!
I had a soft, furry pink jacket that I loved. It was like fake fur, but clearly fake.
Friend said to me, feigning genuine disgust, “Do you know how many muppets died to make that jacket?”

6. That’s a good thing in my book.
My sister wore a brown leather satchel bag to school one day & she could hear her students saying “Jaysus here’s Indiana Jones” as she walked towards the classroom

7. Painted on.
Skinny jeans = Not good.
Walking into the local and one of the lads wearing skinny jeans was asked by an old fella smoking “did those trousers grow out of your arse or did they paint them on?”

8. Back into the fields you go.
Had an admin wear one of these two work. Lad walks up and says, “Mary dear we’re all out of coffee, would you mind harvesting some more?” pic.twitter.com/VNucVEMw9D

9. Escape from the zoo.
This is harsh.
Back in Dublin after travelling S. America, decked out in a visually assaulting combo of zebra print leggings and tiger pattern knee high boots. Queuing into well known Dublin nightclub that evening was asked “Did you get let out of Dublin zoo or make a break for it yourself?”

10. Didn’t go as planned.
This one hurts!
I bought an oversized red and black striped jumper as a teen and felt very grunge a la Kurt Cobain. Wearing it 5 mins and get called me Dennis the Menace. Never wore it again.

11. Well, well, well…
You had it coming.
Came back home with a jacket I bought in Manchester thinking I was cool…first pub I walk into…. “If it isn’t Sgt.Pepper” pic.twitter.com/sqkwQKzBSg
