Wear or Die: Black or white?

Black_or_white

As Michael Jackson once so eloquently put it, "If you’re thinking ’bout my baby, it don’t matter if you’re black or white". When you’re playing Wear or Die with The Fashion Police, however, it might matter to you if you’re wearing black or white, because neither of these choices are particularly attractive ones, in our opinion at least.

This is the choice that faces you today, though, dear readers: you must wear one of these two dresses, or die. So what’ll it be: black or white?

    Very, very easy choice. I’d rather NEVER look like a hooker so I’d go with the white one and, why not, play it up with angel wings and go heavy on the eyeliner for a rock club…in a town where I don’t know anyone and would never have to return to 😉
    Unless it was Halloween and then I’d wear the white dress & angel wings with pride 😀

    Yeah….I’d have to go with the white one as well. That black dress is just way too trashtastic.

    I’m also going to go for the white. The fabrics may not match and the ornamentation may be a little much, but you can always play that up, and maybe add some bright accessories. Even without that, I’d rather look like a LoliGoth than a stripper.

    I would personally go with the white.
    The black one is too hooker-esque

    yeah it is kinda easy(ish) – white one. Hideous, but that black is so, revealing, and not in a good way!

    We can accessorize, right? The White…I could easily do something with that. Studded rocker belt, striped pink and grey tights, black booties, black leather bolero, some fingerless gloves, shaggy rocker hair, a candy necklace, pearls, and a black choker, maybe some fiercely expensive shades, and yes…LOOOTS of eyeliner and mascara. Maybe a black bowler hat to top it off. Oh, and a pink lace parasol(sp?). Nobody could have as much fun with the black dress.

    Wow! Gokarm – you should be a stylist (unless you already are – in which case – you go girl!) Love the way you are thinking!

    Oh, god. I almost said black, but I think everyone is right – white would be easier. Even though I would look like a cracked-out bride

    Actually, with a little pink crop sweater and some cute tights… I’m kinda liking the white one.

    Definitely the white one. As has been pointed out, it just needs the proper accessories – and as someone ELSE pointed out, looking like a Lolita is better than looking like a hooker. 😉

    White. This Wear or Die was too easy 🙂

    As always, those saying it’s too easy are more than welcome to send in their suggestions for it – as I’d said before, it’s a lot more time consuming that you think to trawl the internet for two items that are of equal ugliness 🙂

    Definitely white. With a good pair of knee high boots and a lot of eyeliner, it could look like a decent 80s outfit.

    white – at least you wouldn’t look like a hooker.

    I’d bust the black out. Just to be different. I’d wear it over a really fine gauge knit top and shredded jeans. :3

    The hell .. that white dress is too disgusting ..
    so cheap looking.. and that fake ass lookin’ satin.. hell to the no..
    The black one is slutty, but at least it is clear about that, where as the white one is trying to be somethin’ it clearly aint.
    The black one if i could go to the opposite place of Cheers (You know, where NOBODY knows my name) (With a pair of black tights underneath)

    Hmmm, now you see, I was a little surprised by this one, because the easy option (and what I’d have done) would’ve been to wear the black dress as a top over jeans, with maybe a vest top or something underneath. At least that way you could look like you were wearing a reasonably normal outfit, albeit with a horrible top. In the white one, I think no matter what I did, I’d still look like Britney having her idea of a “classy” Vegas wedding 🙂
    Kudos to those of you who came up with ways to wear the white one, though, and yes, Gokarm really does have mad styling skillz.
    On another note, I’m starting to run out of Wear or Die items that don’t generate the “too easy” comments, so as I said above, your suggestions are always welcome!

    Reading Gokarm’s idea was like a trainwreck in my head. Are you guys serious? That’s horrible style.

    White, preferably to a costume party; the black would get you arrested for soliciting.

    White, no question. The satin skirt is just horrible, but as a whole its much less skanky and has a lot more coverage.

    White. No doubt. I will not be asked if I charged by the hour. And yes the white one is ugly, but the black one is WAY to revealing.
