Wear or Die: Shiny Unhappy People

Wear or Die

(Shiny pants available here and here.)

You may have thought Monday mornings were bad enough as it was, but this Monday is just about to get a whole lot worse, because it’s time to play The Fashion Police’s favourite game: Wear or Die!

For those of you just joining us, it’s pretty straightfoward:

1. There are two ugly items of clothing.

2. You must wear one of them… or DIE.

3. You get to choose which one you wear.

4. Death is NOT AN OPTION, weaklings.

Now, we know none of you want to die over an outfit choice, because that’s the kind of thing Fashion Victims do. So it’s time to put on your big girl (shiny) pants and choose:

Which of the two items above would you wear, if you had to wear one…. or die?

    If I had to I would wear the black monstrosity.
    It´s the lesser of two evils

    Yeah, I’d go with the black as well. Somehow less horrible than the tin foil variation on the right…

    the orange pair, I can act like i’m an out-of-space artistic being and just walk around proudly. But i would wear it, paired with an all black rest of outfit.

    I’d have to wear the copper ones because I could never wear those saggy crotched sequin cropped mess of pants.

    Wear the copper ones and pretend like I’m on my way to the club or gym.

    After great debate, I choose the orange. It’s cold here in Canada.
    A) There’s lots of space underneath for long johns.
    B) It looks like that super sonic finish would block the wind well.
    C) You would be very easy to spot if lost in the wilderness.

    The orange. It’s just tacky. Whereas the black is confused as to whether it’s a skirt or gym leggings.

    The black one looks like a pair of knee-length leggings under a skirt. I’d wear that one.

    I’d wear the copper lame, as it is the right color for my “Keymaster/Sigourney Weaver” costume from the original Ghostbusters movie. 😀 Fancy dress!

    I’d wear the orange ones and then go wander round the space exhibits in the Science Museum… Camouflage myself against the eagle.

      I love this idea! Wish I’d thought of it.

    I’d say the copper pair. The black is like a truncated pair of harem pants… two crimes in one.

    The black ones with a white tank top and some silver jewelry. Then I’d look like Hannah Montana got turned into a genie instead of like and angry penny.

    The copper pair – they look windproof and don’t look like I have a (full) nappy under my clothes…

    The orange. I just cannot stand the drop-crotch on the black! It’s awful.

      Ditto. Harem pants are just wrong.

    Since it is a matter of life and death, I’d go for the copper one.

    Definitely the orange one because the whole drop crotch black one looks like a giant wet nappy

    Definitely the black ones, I could make a hole in the section between the legs and wear it as a jumper…

    The copper one, with the rest of the items in blunt black. (almost) anything but drop crotch!

    Copper without a doubt. I could follow the metal-themed superhero trend and become a female variation of Iron Man. I would call myself Copper-Pants Woman and fight against the dark forces of Drop Crotch.

    Definitely the orange ones. Those at least resemble normal pants, while the black ones are too abominable for words. Anything is better than harem pants.

    Copper pants, with loosely tied converse, a white top and a messy pony tail, Voilá! ..And if anyone asked, I’d say it was laundry day.

    Weeeell, simply because this is “wear or die,” I would make an exception and wear the black sequin ones. Then I wouldn’t have to carry my purse all day! All my belongings happily bouncing along between my thighs (What a visual, eh?)

    Given only those two DREADFUL choices, I would have to choose the bronze metallic pants on the right, for the simple reason that a hyper dropped crotch such as found on the black sequin abomination on the left, suggests an overfull diaper.
