shabby-looking
Explanation:
He/she just stood there, so shabby-looking, when they opened the door for him/her.

Az "ágrólszakadt" (mn) további megfelelői lehetnek még a ragged, down-and-out, raggle-taggle, seedy, de a határozói szerepe miatt ebben a mondatban nekem a "shabby-looking" (kötőjellel) hangzik csak jól.
