Where would you wear… Topshop’s hoody all-in-one?

Hoody_all_in_one

We’re trying to understand the current presence of items of clothing that look like this on some of our favourite retailer’s websites recently, we really are. We wouldn’t quite describe the situation as having reached epidemic propertions – yet – but The Fashion Police have moved into a slightly higher state of alert recently, having discovered an increasing number of items which make us scratch our heads and ask ourselves, “Now, where on earth would you actually wear that?”

Topshop’s hoody all-in-one is one of those items. Aside from the obvious issue of the dropped-crotch, we just can’t imagine a single scenario in which we’d actually want to wear an item like this. So we need you to enlighten us, readers. Where would you wear this (if, indeed, you’d wear it at all). Lounging around at home? (But wouldn’t the fact that you’d need to get comletely undressed to visit the bathroom out you off?) To bed (but then, why would you need a hood in bed?) Out and about in public? Where?

Tell us. Please. Help us understand this item of clothing, and perhaps save it from a stint in the Fashion Police jail.

    No muffin top. Quite a bonus, that. For a fine example of a muffin top, go here (sorry, don’t know how to embed a URL in a comment) http://www.collegelawstudent.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/muffintop.jpg

    That’s clearly a converted Victorian undergarment. All that’s missing is the arseflap.

    Maybe a tourist would wear it while taking a tour of Goodwill. The Goodwill near the poor part of town.

    WHAT! I would wear this anywhere, its brilliant, just add loads of gold necklaces and some killer heels for evening or flip flops for night. I want it.

    I imagine it being the best thing in the world to wear when you are home alone with a nasty cold. But you’re right, the bathroom bit does give me pause.

    You’d wear it to your Bad Fashionaholics Anonymous meeting, of course.

    I bet that a lot of lazy people would love to wear one of those anytime, anywhere. Just jump in your “Hoody” and you’re ready-to-go! Marc Jacobs should take this idea and add it to a pair of shoes. Or flip flops, you know. For the comfort…
