Wear or Die: Playsuits

Wear_or_die_playsuitsAfter the couture crimes we’ve been featuring in Wear or Die recently, we thought you might want to slip into something a little more comfortable – or actually, maybe not when you find out that by “comfortable” we mean “a playsuit”. And by “a playsuit”, we mean “one of the two playsuits pictured above”. Ah. The “nylons over the face” look from the Martin Margiela show are starting to seem like a good idea all of a sudden, no?

Still, whatever you think of them (and who knows, you may even like them, in which case this’ll be an easy game for you), you must pick one of the outfits above, and you must wear it – or die. Will it be Topshop’s leopard print all-in-one, though, or would you prefer to be seen out and about in Grey Ant’s “bloomer suit“? (A word from the wise here: you may just want to check out the back view of that one before making your decision….)

Tell us, then, readers: which of these would you wear if you had to wear one, or die?

    It would have been the bloomer suit until I saw the back. I mean, it has pockets big enough to carry a mask for those awkward moments when you run into people you know on the street. But now I’ll have to go with the leopard leotard and my trench coat. And a hat. A really big, floppy, hide-your-whole-face kind of hat…

    It pains me to say it, but… the leopard print one. I mean, there’s undignified, and then there’s SERIOUSLY undignified, and the one on the right looks like it would be worn by the kind of people that like to wear diapers.
    The idea of me dressed in either of these is laughably painful though. =/

    I’d take the bloomers, add a newsboy cap and a red bandanna, and begin my impressions of young Christian Bale. Perhaps my embarrassing dancing would distract folks from my outfit…

    So I can pick death, right?
    I do love the description of the bloomers though: “…this overall features…side welt pockets punctuated by leather triangles provide sleek detail. The slouchy fit offers a one-of-a-kind appeal”
    I think they have it with one of a kind appeal…

    the one on the right. There looks like an option to undo the buttons holding the legs up in that ‘diaper-like’ way, so I’d just undo those buttons, and go from there. I just cannot bring myself to wear the leopard print – camel-toe is worse than diaper, methinks.

    I absolutely agree with Am, Iยดd never EVER wear leopard print.. Iยดd rather choose the diaper look than the wild print….

    I’d have to go with the leopard print and maybe throw some kind of black tunic top over it…because appearing to be wearing leopard print leggings is still better than wearing a leopard print bodysuit and WAY better that looking like I’m wearing a diaper with suspenders!

    Bloomer suit – I don’t do leopard print, and certainly not all-over leopard print.

    You are a cruel, cruel woman, you know that, don’t you? The one on the right, I guess, but somewhere I’m sure no one would see me.

    I had the same thought Am did, it does look unbuttonable. Leopard print is unforgivable, diaper butt is welcome in comparison. Anyway, I rather like the top half of it, actually.

    I would never wear the leopard print playsuit. The right one would be OK on holiday especially if I can button it down

    The bloomers, but I won’t be happy about it. At least you can go to the bathroom in them.

    Ughhh I hate these things. But I could probably find some way to rock the leopard one whereas the other one would just make me look like I was wearing a diaper.

    Oh no. Camel toe look or poopy pants look?
    Death…
    Not an option? I guess I’ll have to go with the diaper pants.
    Leopard print + Tight suit = My biggest nightmare.

    The leotard. That way I could pretend I’m a glam rock star or a ballet dancer, whereas the one on the right looks like a full nappy, and only like a full nappy.

    Very tough choice, but I’m inclined to the leopard print as looking as closer to “normal” or “remotely human” than the other atrocity. I’d wear it with my big long black winter coat and tall boots. The other…there is no hiding that.
