Clothing Design Fails That Will Make You Laugh Out Loud


If You’re Happy and You Know It…

Crap your hands? We’re all for new song covers, but this t-shirt takes clothing fails to a whole new level. Even the model looks like he’s uncomfortable with giving such terrible advice. Don’t worry, we won’t blame you if things go awry!

Don’t Say Yes to the Dress

Running around from store to store prom dress shopping is always a hassle! These teens thought they had an unmatched solution to the problem by getting a dress delivered to their doorstep. Below is one of many prom dress fails shared by teens across the country who have ordered their gowns from online stores in China, only to receive something totally different. We’d advise you to stay away from these replicas, but after seeing these ridiculous posts, we’re sure you will, anyway!

Geography 101

Really? You had ONE job! Everybody makes mistakes, but if you’re going to print hundreds of t-shirt designs, you’d probably want to make sure they’re accurate! Maybe a little geography refresher wouldn’t do any harm before making any more clothes. In case you need a reminder of what continent this actually is, look no further – we’ve posted a side-by-side image for you. Side note: double checking that your work is right is always a good idea. Unless the designer thought this was right, then that’s a whole different issue.

Is It Too Late Now to Say Sorry?

Too little, too late, JB! He may be an international pop star, but even Justin Bieber can’t get away with wearing leopard print pants that look like he took a massive dump in his diaper. Whether he’s on the runway, performing in concerts, or just walking down the street, the Biebs always has interesting fashion choices. But this one might be the weirdest one yet. The hideous look may have just landed him on the celebrity worst dressed list.

Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve (Collar)

We all secretly really love Shutterstock. Some maybe even more than others. The makers of this shirt sure couldn’t bear to get rid of Shutterstock’s watermark logo before printing the design on its clothes. If you look really closely, you can see the company name outlined above the flower. We always knew Shutterstock had stunning stock photos for our projects and presentations, and now we can also add shirts to the mix! Guess whoever buys this won’t forget where its print came from.

Hold Me Tight

While we all love a bit of a squeeze when we are feeling low, this coat may not be the best way of getting our fix. Before you go calling 911, no, there isn’t four people trapped inside his coat, just an insanely creepy winter garment. No matter how much attention one may need, four hands attached to your puffa coat just won’t cut it. The collar, on the other hand, would make great support for your neck on long journeys.

Feeling On Top

Bralets and crop tops are back in fashion and great for many occasions day or night, however, you need to know how to style them. A pair of high-waisted denim shorts perhaps, a cute mini skirt or even under a t-shirt. Whatever garment you wish to match it with, wearing something underneath is not the answer. Perhaps it was opposites day? Either way, we hope she did not do the same with her pants too!

Giving The Cold Shoulder

While ‘giving someone the cold shoulder’ is used as a saying of intentionally ignoring someone or treating them in an unfriendly manner, could this girl be trying to tell us something? Denim jackets are a stylish, hipster alternative to many other light jackets, a great way to cover up on a cool summer’s evening. They also tend to come at a satisfactory price, yet, taking chunks out of the shoulders is not usually the reason why.

Giving The Cold Shoulder

Mixing It Up

Bandanas around necks, hoodies around waists, socks as mittens or tube tops as mini skirts, some items of clothing can be worn in another way than it was intended. Take this tutu for example. While it would look great on her hips worn with trousers or stockings underneath giving a fun rock chic vibe, putting it across your body over one shoulder and under just doesn’t. Although there is something quite off about this look, there’s also something quite right! Fashion!

Mixing It Up

Cowboy-flops

Sometimes it’s hard to decide what style we want to go for – classy and chic, rugged and edgy, or vintage and classic. There are so many options to choose from that we end up clogging up our closets with clothes that would never go together. So when this guy couldn’t decide between a country western look and a Jesus-sandal relaxed day, he thought he would merge the two together. A great outcome he thought, while the other cowboys just looked down in horror.

Old Is In

Once upon a time, men wore tailored suits and women wore handmade gowns. People back then wouldn’t dare to steer away from the norm. However, times have changed and some people seem to prefer the hippy, rugged, almost homeless look! Today you can purchase washed out denim jeans, ripped tops, and cut-out sleeves, but these jeans are on a whole other level. Want to look like you have rolled around in a pool of mud? Welcome to the 21st century!

Old Is In

Peak-A-Boo

People with long hair can definitely relate to the many times that someone asks, “Did you get a haircut?” for you to answer, “No, it’s just hiding under my jacket!” Luckily for this girl, she didn’t need to deal with the questions as everyone around could spot her hair creeping out the hole in her jacket. Although rips and cut-outs are on trend these days, being at the back of your jacket doesn’t always look so right. We aren’t sure which should go, the hair or the hole?

I’m Blue…

…da ba dee da ba daa. Looks like this is the new requirement for being a part of the Avengers! There’s nothing like watching a good movie with classic superheroes and an Avatar in the mix. The makers could have saved themselves the trouble of adding the unrelated character, who clearly isn’t a superhero, into this hilarious shirt. Though we do admit, Neytiri and Batman look really great up there right next to Spiderman, who is the only actual Marvel character on the shirt.

How Original

This may not be a prom dress fail, but it is definitely still a great online shopping fail! These Yeezy Boost sneakers soared to popularity when they were first released in February of 2015, with people all over the world scurrying and spending hundreds of dollars to own a pair of the hottest new shoes. So, it came as no surprise when replicas were quick to be made. This poor guy just wanted to fit in, and came out with giant Yeezy slippers, instead!

Beanie Babies x Adidas

We’re not quite sure how to interpret these pants, but we do know we’d be totally on board if a Beanie Babies x Adidas collaboration actually existed. Cue throwback to the ’90s. Not only do these pants keep you warm and cushioned, but you can also just always look down and see your abundant supply of furry friends! This contraption would have definitely been nice to have as a kid. Now, really, though — does the model come with it?

Introducing the Adult Armless Onesie

This genius makeshift adult onesie is perfect for when you’re cold, or just lounging around in the high school cafeteria. This guy looks like he’s had enough for one day, and we can totally relate! Sometimes there’s nothing left to do but curl up and give up for the day, and that’s exactly what he did. Who knew those pants were actually that stretchy?? We wouldn’t hate it if they could actually design one of these.

Seeing Double

What’s better than having a picture of a pregnant woman in a matching shirt printed on your shirt? Not much, probably. Being an expectant mother is one of the most exciting feelings in the world! We don’t blame you for wanting to show it off all day with a “due date” shirt. After all, people should be getting ready for the arrival of your bundle of joy. But don’t buy a custom shirt at this place, or things might get a bit weird.

Dinosroar

Correct me if I’m wrong, but last time I checked, there was no “roar” in dinosaur. Can you believe that someone has raised their child to wear such a god-awful, grammatically incorrect shirt? Clearly, they didn’t think much before buying the Jurassic Park themed tee. He may not be putting the “roar” in dinosaur, but he’s definitely putting the “no” in it. It’d be cool if it worked, though. Maybe we can petition for Merriam-Webster to change the word.

Hidden Messages

What makes you it’s a ashamed privilege to be of being black?! It took us a solid minute to realize this isn’t actually a read-between-the-lines type of thing and that we need to separate the quote by font styles in order to uncover the hidden meaning. Phew. Glad we’ve settled that now, but we’re still not convinced that’s how these strike-outs are supposed to work. Hopefully, no one else made the same mistake of buying this nonsensical t-shirt.

Sweatshirtpants

This one of a kind item, unlike anything we’ve ever seen, looks like it was made for a giant spider! Is it a sweatshirt? Are they sweatpants? The world may never know. This hilarious design is baffling no matter how many times or which way you look at it. Guess it’s cool to have long sleeves hanging at our sides when we wear shorts. Who are the lucky people who actually figured out how to wear this piece? We’d love to meet you and learn how it’s actually done.

saTURDaze

Poor Sara. Her all-time favorite shirt is probably no longer that. The fashionable black tee, which most likely says “SATURDAY,” read “TURD” on live TV instead, when paired with this geo-print cardigan. Not to mention, the face Sara made on the image she’s paused on perfectly suits the new slogan on her shirt. Looks like she just dropped a giant one. If you own a similar shirt, be sure not to make the same mistake, or that could end in some serious jokes at your expense!

ABCDEFGH… P?

Sing the alphabet and try to find all the letters in the correct order. It’s pretty funny and not all that easy, seeing as how the letters are jumbled in a way that just doesn’t make any sense. It would be a cool concept if this actually worked out with the lettering, but this just leaves us questioning everything we learned as kids. Guess the makers of the shirt really wanted to try making “BERLIN” happen in this design.

Forgetting the Most Essential Part

Come on, GAP! You’re missing the most essential part. GAP hilariously labeled this shirt as “The Essential V Neck” only to forget to actually incorporate the V! Maybe it’s not such an essential feature, after all. It does look really soft though, so we’ll let it slide. The common shirt style is a favorite worldwide, so you can only imagine peoples’ disappointment when they grabbed one of these off the shelf and didn’t find what they were looking for.

SOMA ULTE

There’s nothing like buying matching shirts for someone you love. Whether it’s a “best friend” or a “soul mate” these cute shirts make amazing gifts that anybody would be lucky to have! This adorable couple shared a kiss on Instagram, both donning their new matching shirts in a sweet declaration of love. But things got kind of confusing when people read them the right way. Usually, words are split into two different shirts, to be read horizontally to complete the phrase. So, naturally, everyone read this as SOMA ULTE.

What Exactly Happens at Grandpa’s?

We don’t know what crazy parties you’ve been having at grandpa’s, but we sure want in! Clearly, we don’t know what we’re missing out on. This slogan is usually used to describe a wild night in Vegas, but hey, if grandpa’s house is just as fun, why not save the money on trip expenses and also spend some quality time with the fam? Apparently, you’re in for a night you’ll never forget. We hope these t-shirts are included in the family weekend. Sign us up.

Acute? Obtuse? Right? Straight?

What type of angle are we talking about, exactly? This bedazzled denim hat screams Britney and Justin circa 2001. The iconic duo flaunted full denim outfits and some serious bling on the AMA red carpet almost two decades ago, which will never be forgotten. After all, fashion almost always repeats itself. This extravagant creation, which could have used a good spell-check before permanently gluing on the rhinestones, spells ‘Angle’ instead of (we assume) ‘Angel’. Unless whoever made it was really a geometry nerd, and this happened on purpose.

Super Sh*tters

Everyone loved being on local sports teams as a kid! What’s better than playing with your friends, traveling to games, and hitting some home runs? Oh, and who could forget the best part — getting fun, custom-made t-shirts! So you can imagine the shock parents and their kids had when they received this lovely design. This baseball team’s shirt is supposed to read “Super Hitters” but it actually looks like something totally different! The giant ‘S’ should’ve probably just stayed with the top word like it’s supposed to.

Business In The Front

“Business in the front and party in the back” may most frequently refer to the ridiculous ’80s hairstyle, the mullet, but it certainly applies to this fail of a wedding dress too. Of course, trying on dresses, especially for a wedding, is a must. So how this dress became so completely botched is beyond comprehension. While the dress on the left is an incredible choice, the dress on the right is an abomination that calls into question whether or not you should buy at that shop.

Unlucky Number 13

As superstition would make us believe, 13 is a very unlucky number. Perhaps that is why this top has failed to print the number in large for all to see. If that is the case, however, then we wonder why writing the number out in letters is still acceptable? That leads us to our conclusion that whoever designed this top just got the number totally confused on the top. If someone was looking to support their favorite football player’s number, then this could cause a whole lot of confusion.

White Is The New Black

We all know that black is always the new black, regardless of what new fashion trends or TV shows may suggest. However, people always like to claim that perhaps one day black will be replaced when “a darker color comes along.” While we all know this is just the point being proven once again, we wonder why someone would have this saying on a white T-shirt. How would this go with our black pants, a black handbag, and black jacket, if our T-shirt is white?

Heading To The East Coast – Or Is It West?

More often than not, tourists go to New York and come back with an “I heart NY” T-shirt. While this is protocol when heading to the Big Apple, we would hope that visitors know they’re on the East coast and not the West. In fact, the states on either coast are very different, and New York can certainly not be mistaken for sunny California. Locals from both would be appalled by this error on the T-shirt, and we certainly hope there are no more wearers of this going around.

Quick, Before My Boyfriend Sees

Do you think she wore this T-shirt out with her boyfriend? Because if you saw your girlfriend wearing that, you would be sure to ask her to change. Even more, you would probably be wondering what she gets up to while you’re not around. While this could be a deterrent for many not wishing to break up a questionably happy relationship, others may jump on the opportunity to kiss a cute girl in a club. We would hate to know what happened if the boyfriend caught them red-handed.

Celine Dios?

Fans of Celine Dion know her as a romantic ballad singer whose beautiful melodies stir the soul and move emotions. However, we like to think that her fan base goes a little further than the kind of people we’d usually like to associate with her audiences. This shirt has proven that even hardcore death metal fans have a place for Celine Dion in their hearts. It looks like there are few people who aren’t inspired by Celine’s magical voice and beautiful music. Rock on, Celine Dion!

A Business Shirt For Wizards

When an advertisement says that the shirt “will fit you like no other,” you expect something close to perfect. And frankly, other than the obvious wizard sleeves, this shirt does look like a pretty good fit! If only you could see the guy’s face – what a priceless moment! I suppose this is why they allow people to try their clothes on in the store. Maybe the designers expected the trend to catch on along with the Harry Potter series?

Atomic Wedgie

Anyone who was bullied in high school will know how painful and embarrassing the atomic wedgie can be. The unsuspecting victim is forced to then either buy a new pair of underwear or constantly walk around with their backs turned towards the wall. However, we have found the perfect solution for those affected by wedgies – the pre-wedgied shirt! This well-designed shirt will fool bullies into thinking you’ve already been wedgied, allowing you to go by your day without any harassment. Here’s to a wedgie-free future!

Watermapple?

It’s not clear whether the designer is bad at English or just doesn’t realize what the difference is between a watermelon and a pineapple! The confusion of this shirt is pretty candid and we assume that the person chose it simply because it was so strangely unique, that sparing a laugh was worth the price! Makes you wonder whether, in some parallel universe, pineapples are actually called watermelons and vice versa? We’ll leave the quantum mechanics to the scientists though!

What Am I Paying For?

Designers are always trying to push the boundaries and redefine what we perceive as ‘stylish.’ The popular contemporary saying “less is more” certainly applies here and the designers stopped at nothing to ensure that you got the very least for your money! We’ve heard about torn jeans, ripped jeans, worn jeans and aged jeans – but jean-less jeans? We think that’s going too far! Needless to say, there are probably a few people who decided to buy these anyway.

Peak-A-Boo

Most people would be surprised to see someone who appears to be smuggling an elf in their shirt. When this guy was going about his day, he couldn’t figure out why so many people were giving him strange looks. He went from one errand to another, clueless as to what was peeping out from under his sweater the entire time. When he finally arrived back home, however, he saw Will Ferrel’s surprised expression staring out from below.

Look On The Dark Side

Philosophers have spent many days arguing whether or not it’s better to be an optimist or a pessimist. Of course, the real answer is to be a realist, but we wouldn’t want to be too pragmatic, now would we? Usually it’s optimism that is most prominent in public forums, but in this case, it seems like the message got a little bit skewed. While most were confused by the seemingly downtrodden message, the pessimists rejoiced that they were finally being recognized.

Wonder Woman

In the mood to solve a puzzle?  Look no further. Try reading this Wonder Woman t-shirt, which has no real flow or general structure. “No has bo me ever”? Hmm. Surely there are better ways to get this quote across than the one on this shirt. And let’s be honest, we all think we could channel our inner Gal Gadot and be Wonder Woman sometimes. But would she really make such a badly-designed and confusing shirt when she’s not off saving the world? Probably not.

They Love You, Too

This dry cleaning store must be providing incredible customer service if customers are willing to wear their plastic bags and hanger covers in public. Not to mention the metal hanger worn as a headband! So fashionable. We know it says “We Love Our Customers,” but surely whoever wears this ensemble is really the one displaying their true love and dedication. We all love having fresh, clean clothes, but maybe some people like it a little too much.
