Wear or Die: Another jumpsuit edition

Wod-jumpsuits

We know jumpsuits tend to appear on Wear or Die more than most items of clothing, but really, so many ugly jumpsuits, so little time: can you blame us?

Today we want to know what you'd wear, faced with a clear choice between psychedelic silk from New Look (option A) or 80s-print viscose with built-in hips from Miss Selfridge (option B).

You must choose one, or, sorry, but you must DIE!

    It would have to be the second one I think. It’s looser around the hips and thighs so would be the most forgiving of the two.

    This is easy – option B. The first one looks like an art teacher’s dungarees! I’d compliment the oooh so lovely jumpsuit with a chunky belt, cardie, nice shoes and sunglasses (so that I’m not recognised, lols)!

    Option B, although imagining what it would look like on me is making me feel nauseous!

    Option B. The shape is a tad more harrowing, yes, but that print. Holy god. Several parts of it look like eyes to me, staring out at me from some psychedelic hell.

    I think I’d have to go with option A. I know, I disagree with you all. But seriously, baggy metallic square print? ick. Though one that looks like 70s disco and 80s pretend punk rock threw up all over it isn’t much better.

    Really, you all take B?
    With breasts hanging at your waist (or what is that supposed to be?) and those hips?
    No, thanks, I’ll take A. At least I’d look like a human being in it (maybe a colourblind one, but at least formed normally…).

    Definitely A, at least it would be more form-fitting! B kind of looks like it has padded hips or something.

    option A, easy. the second one looks suspiciously harem pant-y at the bottom, which frightens me somewhat.

    I’d take A. At least it has straps to make sure it stays up.

    They’re both horrendous, but if I had to pick, I’d pick option B.

    Is it bad that I like them both?

    I would go with A. I don’t need extra saddlebags.

    I’d totally go with option A. I actually like the pyschedelic pattern and the colors are pretty. I’d look like a marshmallow if I tried the other jumpsuit; gotta love the 80’s.

    A. I don’t mind the cut of it so much, except that it’s a jumpsuit, and I hate both patterns equally. I also can really dig that zipper it has down the front.

    I just hate tube tops. They make you sag so much…I don’t get them.

    Actually, this was an easy choice! Definitely B. The pattern on A is absolutely horrendous.

    Option B. Even tho it looks like things “hang” in the picture, i think it depends on your body type as well.

    i guess, if death is not an option, i would wear option B. With some kick-a** acessories and awesome shoes, it could be pulled off

    A, for reasons already given: straps, and the fabric isn’t actually too bad.

    Death. I just…can’t. Not this time. No choice.

    B. It looks kind of breezy and comfortable.
    I hate the print on A too much.

    Easy: A. Throw a lightweight black or navy tunic over it and some chunky heeled sandals. Might not be too bad. Plus, silk. B will make most women look short and dumpy, cheeseball fabric, plus tube top. I absolutely cannot wear those things. Not even when I was young and pert.

    Option A. At least it’s marginally interesting.

    Option A. It wouldn’t make my hips look as absolutely ginormous as Option B.

    Call me cray-cray, but I ACTUALLY kind of like option B. The fabric is pretty cool, and a nice, structured jacket and some black heels would go nicely. and a belt, definitely.

    I kinda like A but B would be more flattering on my figure I think…
