When you’re casually browsing channels and come across some inexplicable high fashion couture line on Fashion TV, you can’t help wonder, “Really, where would I wear them?” While some get off the runway and into Lady Gaga’s red carpet wardrobe, there are others that you can (maybe) brave on the streets when you’re feeling a little adventurous. Here are some of the most bizarre runway fashion trends and where you can carry them.

Be it Milan, Paris or New York, every fashion week presents its share of ‘in your face’ outfits. While they may initially make you pucker up, there’s some fun is musing over the uniqueness and imagining yourself strut down a particularly unknown foreign land where it’ll be appreciated.

Take some of your worst fashion dilemmas on a test drive in these cities.

But the boldness ought to be expressed in a city that compliments it. The artsy culture and the city scape of Barcelona is such that it’ll make you want to get your quirky side out. You won’t hesitate to shine in these bright hues. The truth is, no one has the time to look. Be it Placa Reial, the Gothic Quarter, Park Guell or the crowded La Rambla on the weekends, you’re good to go with strappy heels and minimal make up.
