Crimes of Fashion

The body suit is back! Fashion Police appalled….


If you're old enough to remember the early 90s, then you'll probably remember bodysuits, or "bodies" as they were commonly known. "Bodies". Let's just think on that one for a moment…

OK, where was I? Oh yes, bodysuits. The idea, of course, was that they'd make you look like your top was tucked into your jeans, without any of those annoying wrinkles that happen when your top is actually tucked into your jeans. Also: the shirt would never come un-tucked, so you'd always look all neat and preppy, and like you just stepped out of an early 90s Gap advert.

The reality, of course, was very different. You see, the reality is that the "top tucked into jeans" look isn't actually all that hot, is it? And to be brutally honest, it kinda sucks. Bodysuits were also uncomfortable. The poppers fastened right under your crotch, making you feel like you were wearing a nappy at all times. Worse, the poppers would sometimes un-pop, and you'd see girls walking around with their shirt tucked into their jeans at the front, and a little "tail" flying along behind them. As you can imagine, this wasn't a good look.

Anyway, my point is this: bodysuits are back. French Connection are selling them for £30 a pop (no pun intended). Run, people. Hide. Escape the invasion of the body snatchers suits if you can. It's not too late…
