Wear or Die: Animal Instincts

Animal_print_3

The Fashion Police have noticed that a lot of our readers don’t like animal print. This is a shame, because guess what we have for you to try on for this week’s Wear or Die? Did you guess "animal print"? Good guess!

Yes, today your choice is between the leopard print leggings on the left, or the dress on the right, which seems to used the prints of quite a few animals to create this, umm, "unique" effect. Poor animals. And poor you, because, according to the rules of the game, if you don’t choose one of these items to wear, you die!

Which leaves our only remaining question: which item will you choose?

    The leggings, because I could wear them with a long black shirt. The dress breaks the rule about showcasing legs or breasts but not both, heh.

    I’d wear the one on the right, as a joke, and with skinny denim underneath.

    obviously the leggings with a long tunic and boots. I’ve seen worse looks.

    The “dress” is actually kinda cute. I would wear it. I heartily believe that LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS and thus should not be worn alone as any form of pant.

    Oh god… I usually like animal print, but this is a tough one…
    I guess the leggings. With a simple black top and a denim mini.

    Yuck to both. I can deal with animal prints in accessories. Otherwise I think 80’s hooker.

    you failed to state whether we could cover our crotch with the leggings, if so: leggings (with some sort of a black long shirt or a dress), mind you I wouldb’t be leaving the house. If i had to venture with my crotch showing? the dress (which i own IN BLACK and isn’t half bad). Either way i wouldn’tleave the house

    Alexia and I are on the same page. The dress would work as beach wear, albeit tacky beach wear. Leopard leggings = never okay.

    Ohboy. My nemesis animal print. I’d have to go for the godawful leggings, too, and pair them with boots (high) and an oversized black dress (low), hoping they’d never show.

    I thought I had such a great idea, yet a lot of fellow responders had it, too. I choose life today. I would wear the leggings under a black maxi dress (definitely not today where the heat index is around 104 degrees F.) I would hope that not a bit of the leggings would show. If I were in a horrible accident and my clothes had to be cut off of me in the hospital, then I pray all my nurses be blind!!!

    The dress, definitely. I’d rather be run over by a truck before I ever wear leggings. I think it’s the most obnoxious trend EVER.

    Er… I own some leopard print footless tights, so this one is pretty easy.

    I think I would wear the leggings, with a simple black long shirt, or some sort of dress.
    With flats or somthing.

    I agree with Danielle. I would wear my bikini under the dress, and just hang on the beach. Anywhere else, NO 🙂
    The leggings might be decent with a black skirt, but beach dresses are cooler. XD

    I’m with all the other ladies here. Most definitely going for the leggings… I could actually wear them with a cute black skirt, turtleneck and black boots and make it look fly.

    the 2nd…just stick it over a pair of black tights with heels
    the 1st is too streetworkerish for any rescue…

    I’d go with the leggings, and cover them up with a tunic or something (in black) and ballet flats. Then I’d hide in my house all day, and not even open the door to the postman.

    Actually I have something nice to say about these leggings: the print would be a great camouflage for a cameltoe!
    And actually they are pretty nice compared to the hooker dress on the right.

    Oh my god, the leggings are awful. I don’t think they look nice at all not even with a dress or long shirt on top! The dress is a bit to short but with the mixture of the animals it looks alright, the dress is prettier I’d prefer that.

    The dress, as a swimsuit coverup. Actually, I even like it. Please take me to fashion jail rehabilitation.

    The dress… the model must be tall, and I’m really short, so the dress must be a little bit longer on me 😛

    The dress! It would look cute with jeans. Or as a bathing suit coverup.
    Actually, the leggings are kinda cute too.
    I don’t think either one is bad. I like animal prints!

    the dress. it could be caried off as beachwear if you look like halle berry. whereas the leggings are just nasty. although i guess you could wear a long black dress over them and hope nobody notices…

    I’m surprised no one’s said this. I’d wear both! I’d put the leggings under the dress, and say that I’m wearing them to “sub-consciously remind everyone I see of the moral, ethical, and anti-humanitarian travesties going on in Africa!”

    The tights of course. With a big, black sweater dress and black skimmers (since I can’t wear heels).

    i love both :O
    if the leggings were longer probabaly would choose them but im going to have to say the dress, would look great with just some black stilettos and gold accesroies, although it does look like its cutting of her circulation aboe the cups =S

    Leggings with pants over top, duh. The dress is actually not that bad of a shape, but you can’t completly cover it up.

    The dress! I think it’s actually very cute, you could wear tights and a cardigan with it or maybe skinny jeans. I don’t think the leggings are that bad, but ones that are footless like that are really unflattering on me!
