The Dress Like a Toddler Trend Returns: Barbie Girl

Barbie tracksuit

You know, we would absolutely LOVE this outfit…. if we were five years old. And if it was 1982.

Given that we’re adults, though, and it’s 2012, we have to ask ourselves why we’re logging onto ASOS.com and entering straight into some kind of strange alternate universe in which it’s acceptable for grown women to wear Barbie tracksuits, the likes of which their five-year-old nieces would probably dismiss as a little bit too 80s…

We feel like if we were to somehow come round to the idea of wearing this, everything would be different. We would no longer fight crimes of fashion, for instance: we’d be too busy braiding each other’s hair and discussing which My Little Pony is the best.*

Do you think you could pull off the toddler look? Do you WANT to? Then click here to buy the whole outfit at ASOS….

    I think at 38 I may be a little old for that.

    Hey, even Barbie didn’t wear clothes with her own face on them. I think. Admittedly, it has been a while since I played with Barbies. 🙂

    They will be ALL OVER THIS in Essex! I went to V Fest in Chelmsford last week and concealed wedge trainers / sneakers with some kind of Barbie merchandise was clearly THE thing to wear. It will sell out. To Essex.
