Where would you wear a studded unitard? Seriously?

Topshop-studded-unitard

  OK, Topshop, this is a Fashion Police intervention. You see, we love you, we really do, but when you insist on producing things like this white studded unitard (£80) and matching leotard (£60), we start wondering what the hell you're trying to do to us here? And when you suggest that the unitard in question be "rocked" with "a shrunken acid wash denim jacket and heels", well, we start to think you just might be taking the piss.

Who are you expecting to wear these items, Topshop? Where are you expecting them to be worn? Sure, yeah, we know dancers wear unitards and leotards, sometimes. But surely not strapless ones? And surely to God, not with acid wash jackets and heels?

Someone please explain this to us. Or tell us we're hallucinating, and these items don't actually exist. Please.

    Unitard: would probably go with their Pierrot hat (http://www.thefashionpolice.net/2008/08/pierrot-hat-wit.html ).
    Leotard: Madonna does Elvis Presley.

    It’s very tribal war paint, like um…it reminds me of Mad Max for some reason. But I think the concept is underdeveloped here, which is why it looks SO terrible.

    Burn it. Burn it on a pyre. As someone who did ballet lessons as a child for longer than I care to remember, I shall never again be forced into skintight Lycra. NEVER!

    It’s for all us girls who want to jump over a row of trucks on a motorcycle, but never had anything to wear.
    Gotta take care of the superhero class, after all:o)

    OMG, the front of the leotard is quite weird, but the back… Have you seen the back? I’m speechless, but not in a good sense.

    I’d pay good money to see people wearing this stuff at the grocery store and whatnot.

    Everything is wrong with these. EVERYTHING. I can’t possibly elaborate further.

    A mother-of-the-bride could wear this to the wedding, if she really disliked the soon-to-be in-laws.

    I thought the unitard I had to wear in CATS was bad, but I would so take that over these.

    I could see a figure skater wearing this unitard. In fact, I was reminded of “Blades of Glory” (though it’s about male figure skaters) when I first laid eyes on the leotard…
    It’s still hideous though.

    Most people love my style and I have been eyeing the very unitard that everyone is blasting… lol You guys make me feel bad! I have a one piece D&G unitard similar to this one and everytime I wear it, people think it’s HOT! I know you guys will blast me for saying this, but on the right person with the right look (me) and persona, this Unitard will be HOT!

    get some sense of adventure!
    i own 4 unitards and they’re all getting more use than any jeans, shorts or trousers i own!
    you can wear them as leggings with a top over the top, or as a top with jeans over the bottoms
    or completely on its own!
    it has three possible types of outfit in one suit!
    this particular unitard is one i wouldn’t buy unless it was cheap, but i still like it (just not enough)
    why does everyone think it so ‘outrageous’?

    I’d wear the shorter one. I really like that look, with a nice skirt and belt. 🙂
