The Emperor’s New Jumpsuit, Part 2, by Missoni


If a sheer dress is a “shress” and sheer pants are “shants“, we can only assume that a sheer jumpsuit must be a “shumpsuit”. And so that’s what we’re going to call this: a shumpsuit.

Luckily for all of us, this shumpsuit isn’t quite as sheer as some of the items The Fashion Police have been forced to arrest since the sheer “trend” kicked off, but wear it on a bright day with nothing underneath, and you can definitely expect some stares, if not a caution from the actual police.

Presumably this shumpsuit isn’t actually supposed to be worn with nothing underneath it, though, in which case, good luck with styling it, and you can pay your £917 to Intermix, who’re selling it. Yes, £917. And worth every single penny, we’re sure…

    In their defense, it looks like they’re meant to be worn over a bikini while walking on the boardwalk with an ice cream cone. And in that sense, they’re marvelous, in a retro 70’s “Three’s Company” kinda way.

    That looks very familliar-I’m pretty sure I’ve already seen a celebrity wearing it, although I can’t remember who. A really stupid celebrity, obviously, because it’s hideous.
