These 25 Uniforms Are Probably The Weirdest Official Uniforms Ever Seen

They were either the most horrible colors on the planet, like vomit green or had such terrible fit that it made you look like a shapeless glob. I mean, who the heck comes up with these ridiculous uniforms? Also, some of us have been unlucky enough to have gone to colleges with uniforms and nothing is as embarrassing as being a full grown individual wearing tacky as frack mandatory uniforms to an educational institutions.

If you too have been a victim of such fashion faux pas, be assured that you haven’t seen the worst. When it comes to outrageously horrible uniforms, the following uniforms take the cake. These uniforms are so cornea searingly cringe worthy, that they make us say out loud, “What the heck were they thinking?”
