Wear or Die | The Return!

It’s been a long time since we last played Wear or Die – the game in which everyone’s a loser – so let’s have a quick recap of the rules…

First, we present you with two outfit options:

Wear or Die from The Fashion Police

Option A | Option B

Next, you must choose one of these outfits to wear, in public, and without doing anything to conceal it : so you can’t, for instance, say “Oh, I’ll take Option A, but I’ll wear a coat over the top and a bag over my head!” Doesn’t work that way, sorry.

If you don’t choose one of the two items to wear? You die. Simple.

Oh yeah, and death is not an option – we repeat, DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION – so you’re going to have to pick one of these two aweome outfits, we’re afraid. Lucky you!

For this week’s selection, we bring you two vintage outfits. The product descriptions don’t include the era, but we’re going to guess they’re from the 1970s, because when else would people have voluntarily walked around dressed like this? Of course, the fact that these items provide a small slice of fashion history may help make up for some of their shortcomings, or perhaps you’ll genuinely like one – or even both – of them. If that’s the case, then your choice is an easy one. If not, however, well, it sucks to be you, because this is Wear or Die, and you’re not seriously going to tell us you’d rather die than wear one little outfit, are you?

Are you? Which of these outfits would you choose to wear, if you had to wear one… or DIE?

    I think I’d go with B. It looks more comfortable, and if you belt it and do some big awesome jewelery, it could almost pass for an outfit. Option A looks like a costume. It just needs some platform red glitter shoes and you could be Dorothy in “The Wiz”.

      Me too – B. At least it doesn’t give you a cameltoe like A does.

    I’ll have to go with A, as costumy as it looks. The thing that makes up option B looks too much like pyjamas.

    I would go with A, with flats and a cute T-shirt it could work.

    Actually, I’m certain I have worn A. It was darned cute in the mid 70s.

    I’d go with A. And then kill myself.

    A. But I would unbutton that blouse a little, yikes. B is just too sad and saggy. A just looks like ‘dress like a toddler’ day.

    A. When choosing between a onesie pj set and overalls, I’ll choose overalls.

    I’d say B. The fabric itself isn’t bad: It’s almost pretty, if it was dress. I’d belt it with a wide brown leather belt and roll up the sleeves. Still looks like pajama, but better than A, which is stiff and uncomfortable looking beside being horrifically ugly and in a color that would look horrible on me.

    Oh dear Lord….. I almost want to pick B because the fabric pattern is inoffensive & is ALMOST a jumpsuit (not Fashion Police verified, I know, but I don’t mind jumpsuits). But there is no escaping the fact that those are just pyjamas. Pyjamas cut like toddler pyjamas but for grown-ups…. That would mean I would have to go with option A. Honestly, I’m not sure how bright blue, bell-bottomed overalls are any better, but at least someone might mistake me for being one of those “fashion forward” people, because weren’t overalls making a comeback as of last year?

    I would definitely choose A… I love the color even though it might be a bit much. I like it WAY better than B.

    I’m going to say B, because at least I could just tell people I felt sick and was wearing my pajamas.
