We don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this one, so we think we’re going to settle for “crying with laughter”. Because seriously, readers. Seriously. These onesies would look super-cute on babies or toddlers, but here’s the thing: they’re not for babies or toddlers. No, they’re for us. Adults. Yes, the ‘Dress Like a Toddler’ trend has struck again. Is there no stopping its reign of terror?
Now, we can’t deny that these will keep you nice and cosy on a cold winter’s night, and will be super-comfortable when you’re lounging around the house. The cosy comfort will be achieved at the expense of your dignity, however, and unless you sleep alone – or want to – you may want to reconsider your choice of an adult onesie complete with pwetty little yellow duckies on the front. That could be really off-putting for your partner, you know?
What say you to these, readers? Do you seek style and comfort, even in your pyjamas, or do these seem like a good idea to you? If so, you can buy them here. And if the pictures above amused you, wait until you see the men’s versions:
(Admit it: you want him…)
Here are some more examples of the adult onesies in action:
Yeah, we know you love Where the Wild Things Are. You don’t have to dress like Max to prove it, though: remember, you’re a big girl (or boy) now, you can leave onesies far behind you. It’s not cute to see an adult in a romper suit: in fact, if you want to know the truth, it’s a little bit creepy. Backing away slowly from the dude in the romper suit… trying not to make any sudden movements…
Look at these cool cats! Because nothing says “street style” like a Snuggie with legs, does it? You’ll be the envy of all your friends: well, the ones who don’t get out much, anyway.
“Mommy, wow! I’m a big boy now!”
It’s not a “onesie”, it’s a “Funzee”. Do you see what they did there? “Why should babies get all the fun?” asks the website selling these. We think a better question would be, “Why on earth would you want to dress like a baby? No, seriously, WHY? That admission’s not going to get you a girlfriend, you know?” Also, this just in: you can buy NORMAL pyjamas and dressing gowns that are warm and comfortable too. Who knew?
Of course, although our name is The Fashion Police, we should point out that we do speak (mostly) in jest here. So if you want to dress like a toddler in the comfort of your own home, who are we to stop you? Go for it. After all, why should babies get all the, er, fun?
