Wear or Die: Printed Pants

ugly-print-pants-trousersIt’s been a while since we’ve played Wear or Die, but as soon as we laid eyes on the two pairs of pants shown above, we knew we had to try and force you to wear them: or one pair of them at least.

That’s the task before you now, readers: imagine that The Fashion Police have stolen all of your clothes. Instead, we present you with these two pairs of trousers (and OK, we’ll let you wear a top and shoes with them – we’re not that mean), with the warning that if you don’t choose one pair to wear, you must die. Now, clearly you’re not going to want to die over a pair of pants, so tell us: which ones will you choose to wear? On the left, Henrik Vibskov’s zig-zag stripe harem pants or, on the right, ‘Dancefloor Trousers’ by Unique at Topshop? The choice is yours: enjoy!

    Option A. I could go as a clown. No wait, I’m scared of clowns… It’s also been a while since you did a dress of the day… Will you please bring that back?

      The Fashion Police

      Hi Sharlie,

      I don’t have any plans to bring back Dress of the Day at the moment – it was generating a lot of very negative reactions, so I don’t think it was working for the site. If you have any ideas for other features you’d like to see, though, I’m more than happy to hear them!

        Why was Dress of the Day getting negative response anyway? God forbid someone say they like a dress and have it featured for ONE DAY! It’s not like it’s Dress of the Century!

        Also, I think I’d go for option B. They’re hideous, but they’re not quite so… ‘zany’.

          Lol! I know, but some people take it very seriously – I’ve had more people telling me I should be shot over Dress of the Day than the rest of the site put together!

          That’s not why I stopped it, though, and actually, some of the responses were justified. It was always a really hard column to find stuff for because there’s really not that many absolutely fantastic dresses out there at the moment, and people expect every single one to be jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Fashion being what it is, though, a lot of stuff tends to look fairly similar, so I’d spend ages looking for something only for people to complain that it wasn’t good enough – it just wasn’t practical to keep it going. If we’re able to take on more writers at some point, I may bring it back, though 🙂

    Long, slow, drawn-out death.

    Can you imagine the second pair on anyone shorter than 6’10”?

    Oh, death has never looked this tempting… but before that I think I’d go with option B. These buttons at A’s crotch give me the creeps. And it’s a loooooong crotch for a pair of tight pants, I might add.

    Option b. I have a long black sweater that would cover me up to the knees.

    Option A, enthusiastically. Vaguely recognizable as pants & ugly beats ugly & ugly any day, in my book.

    these had to be recently unearthed in some le chateau stock room from 1986 teehee…b is totally hammer time…i’d go with a…i’d haul it up to my armpits so it would look like a little old man’s crazy strapless tuxedo…well…if said “little old man” was aerosmith’s steve tyler…

    I feel like option a could have a lot of potential if you paired it with a lose black tucked in tank top and a white vintage necklace, but that’s just me

    Option B. ‘Cause my friend said so. And because it would make a wonderful MC Hammer costume.

    Option B.
    They remind of the sort of pants a teacher of mine wore at high school.
    That is NOT a good thing.

    I would have to go with b. The first pair really creeps me out with the buttoned drop crotch.

    Option B, because I can’t even think about option A. I need to just pretend I saw nothing.

    TOTALLY option B. I even know some people (cough teachers cough my mom) that might actually WEAR option B ON A NORMAL DAY. Creepy much?

    Option B, I actually kind of like them, and atleast it wouldn’t look like i was wearing children’s pajamas!

    Both scary, but I’ll go for B.
    I also would like to have the dress of the day back, it was one of my favourites!

    I’d stick to option B…the drop crotch isn’t so bad and I’d rather look like MC Hammer than a freakaziod. lol

    Mmmm…. I’d say option b. I think it could pass as a gardening/grocery shopping outfit
    in some parts of russia (i mean villages that haven’t been yet introduces to such wonders as tv, ovens and mirrors… humfp…)

    I’d go for A – it’s nice to bring laughter to other people occasionally…

    Option A, but I really was tempted with death

    My boyfriend just looked over and said, “Eww!”

    Since I find A to be irredeemably and absolutely hideous, and I don’t really want to be dead, I was left with option B.

    I could probably make B work.
