41 Oddball Fall Fashions

Strange Autumn Looks, From Eye Gloves to Faux Butt Cracks

— October 15, 2009 — Luxury
It’s easy to fall into the tried-and-true mainstream fall fashions—you know, cozy sweaters, black leggings, chic boots. While you’ll look great (and normal), you won’t necessarily set yourself apart from the crowd.

This cluster is for the risk-taking fashionista who wants to stand out a little—or a lot, depending on how brave you are. From space glam couture to faux gorilla arms, here are some bizarre fall fashions of 2009. Wear if you dare!
