25 People Who Accidentally Blended in With Their Surroundings

That Awkward Moment When You're Wearing a Wallpaper Pattern...

Via Imgur u/CuriousGuyPMnudes.

Have you ever been out and about in the world when suddenly you look down and realize that your outfit totally matches the wall behind you? Or have you gone furniture shopping only to discover that your sweater is more "upholstery" than hipster? If not, count yourself lucky, because it seems that cases of accidental "urban camouflage" are a lot more common than you'd think!

Take the folks in these pictures, for instance. There they were, walking around thinking they looked pretty respectable... when in reality they're blending in with their surroundings so much that they might as well be wearing Harry Potter's invisibility cloak. How did they handle the embarrassment of wearing a wallpaper pattern? They snapped a pic so we could all have a good laugh on the internet! Thanks, guys!

Do they sell this shirt in the gift shop, or was this just a freaky coincidence?

Wallpaper Is Really Your Color

Via Reddit.

Remember that scene in "Garden State" where Zach Braff wears a shirt made from left over fabric wallpaper? This is just like that, except 100% unintentional.

That's Tight(s)

Which came first, the floor-colored tights or the tights-colored floor? Either way, this is a definite office fail!

No, That's Not a Floating Head on the Stairs

Via Izismile.

Do not adjust your screens! This is an actual human woman perched on a set of carpeted stairs and NOT a floating lady head, as it first appears.

Naturally this photo raises questions. First and foremost, was there a sale at JoAnn Fabric?

MEEEE-OOOOW

Before you file a missing persons report, make sure to check to see if the person is actually just blending in with her comforter. Good rule of thumb.

Invisible Feet

These socks are perfect for when you want to look like your legs just end at the bottom of your jeans. 'Cuz who doesn't want that?!

We're certain that this outfit looked much better in the vertical, upright position.

Maybe It's Maybelline

Via Imgur u/CuriousGuyPMnudes.

On second thought, no. It's not Maybelline; it's Subway Chic.

Still, this isn't the weirdest thing we've ever spotted on the subway. Not even close.

Sun, Surf, and Sand? Check.

Via Imgur u/CuriousGuyPMnudes.

This one might very well be an intentional design, and if so, well done! It sure beats a chest hair bathing suit or something crazy like that.

Very cool urban camo, everyone! Keep up the good work blending right in with your surroundings. This way you can attend the event without having to actually interact with anyone, because they won't even see you standing there! Outfits like these are truly an introvert's dream.
