Wear or Die: Jump(Suit) for your life!

Wear_or_die_jumpsuitsThis week’s dose of style-related torture comes to you, not from The Fashion Police ourselves, but from reader Helen, who hit up eBay on our behalf and found these two jumpsuits – one of which you must wear, or die!

You know the rules: you must pick one item to wear, and give us the reasons for your choice in the comments section. What’s it going to be, though: the bright pink “Barbie does Dallas” jumpsuit on the left or the fetching skull-suit on the right? Remember, if you don’t choose one, you die – so choose well, dear readers!

P.S. – if you’re choosing the skull suit, you may want to take a look at the back view first…

    I’d wear the one on the right, with a jacket, tights and boots. It would still look very silly but would not garner nearly as much attention as the head-to-toe hot pink jumpsuit!

    DEFINITELY the skull suit. I wouldn’t want to be seen in that pink abomination on the left (the shoulders, the shoulders! The— the everything!). I really don’t think the one on the right is anything like as horrendous. Although I don’t have much good to say about it either.

    I’d wear the pink one, because it’s the worst…and if I’m going down, I’m taking others with me! I shall sear eyes in that thing!

    Just added a P.S to this post advising those of you choosing the jump suit to take a look at the back view!

    The skull suit; I couldn’t wear those shoulders on the pink jumpsuit. I also kind of like the shape of the top part of the skull jump suit.

    Fashion dreams? Fasion nightmares more like, but still I agree with Arielle, you could definately make that one a little more acceptable than the hot-pink 80’s number

    If fixing up is allowed, I choose the pink one.
    I would make the sleeves short and puffed. Then the legs I would make into a skirt. Then I’d have hot pink knee-length dress with cute puffy sleeves.
    The extra left-over material I’d use to make a wide belt. How hot is this?

    I’d pick the skull suit. The back kinda makes it more tongue-in-cheek than the pink abomination.

    The Skull suit! First of all, if I threw on a white hoodie it would be kind of passable (albeit still a poor choice). But even if I couldn’t do that, at least you can tell that the skull suit was made in this decade. I would just look like a fashion victim, whereas in the pink one I would look like I had come to conquer your planet.

    Ughhh the back of the skull suit is horrid! I’d still wear it. Maybe with a jacket and knee high boots.

    I’m going against everyone else (except Gokarm)… And going with the pink.
    The pink may be fug, but it isn’t going to make me look like a hooker, and trust me, where I live you don’t want to be mistaken for that…

    Skull suit. Pink one too migraine-inducing. Going to lie down in darkened room now…

    Ugh! The fug! Helen must hate us. (Why Helen?!) I’d probably end up wearing the pink with a jacket of sorts to hide the shoulders. I have an aversion to anything reminiscent of Ed Hardy… *shudder*

    I’m all over the skull suit, and here’s why: Yes, we have to wear it out in public, but there are no details as to WHERE in public. Therefore, I’m putting on the skull suit under a trench (the trench will be gone, never fear) and heading straight to the darkest, smokiest, indie-est, trendiest dive bar or club that I can find. That said, I’d play up the indie thing by wearing it over bright tights with patent-leather heels. Just ’cause.

    The skull one definitely! If people should ask questions, I can always tell them I used to be an iceskating champion!

    The pink. Reasons:
    a) I like pink, even bright, headache inducing pink
    b) It would suit my figure better – I have thunder thighs that should not be inflicted on an unsuspecting world
    c) The back of the skull suit. I need not say more
    Heels and a belt (one like that Azzedine Alaia wide studded belt at the ridiculous price you featured earlier), big necklace and either a hat or a turban ala Joan Collins – embrace the retro Dallas look for all it is worth.

    I’d wear the one on the right. Though I don’t like the weird non-printed bits on the front or the belted straps, its better than crushed velvet, shoulder pads, puffy sleeves and a deep V neck.

    Jumpsuit B:
    – I’d paint it a plum color
    – I’d go to the beach
    – I would swim.
