Shell suit is voted worst fashion offender

A poll has unveiled what the five worst five items of clothing of the past 50 years are

The survey commissioned by online retailer asked 2000 women over 50 to vote for their least liked fashion trends.

The shell suit, popular in the 80s and early 90s, came in at number 1 with a staggering 91% of votes. The item, which was also jokingly worn by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's character Ali G, was closely followed by the Spandex mini skirt at 88% and dungarees at 73%.

The jumpsuit came in 4th place with 68% of votes, whilst shoulder pads, made famous in the 80s by stars such as Joan Collins, were the 5th most offensive fashion item at 62%.
