I’m writing this wearing what essentially is an adult romper suit.
Nope, I’m not some weird sex fetish loser (although I *do* have a thing for men’s forearms; Patrick Swayze’s being the sexiest EVS), but I’m wearing a onesie. A fleecy all-in-one hooded garment, zipped from neck (to crotch) at the front. And mine might be a cat one. With ears. And a tail. Meow!
I honestly never thought I’d see the day. But as the nights have drawn in and it’s got BLAAAADY FREEZING, the smug snugness levels of being zipped into a fleecy all-in-one garm, hood atop your head, just cannot be rivalled.
I realise they are probably about as sexually alluring as a gently rotting hedgehog but… I DON’T CARE. I’M COSY.
Here’s our pick of the best onesies aroundsie…
As seen on One(sie) Direction (and more recently their mini-me band, X Factor’s Union J). The original, and some may say the best. I say definitely the most expensive but you’e paying for high quality cotton here that won’t give you static shocks as you pad around the house.
Nod to OnePiece’s Norweigian heritage with a Fair Isle print onesie. Nordic log cabin and roaring fire not included. Nor are an underage boy band. Soz.
You know we love the leopard print here at Le Blow. Always have done, always will. #LEOPARDFORLIFE
With that it mind, why WOULDN’T we want to dress like a baby leopard, complete with ears and a tail?
Skeleton glow-in-the-dark onesie
Note: we know this is a men’s design – we like the slouch factor that brings cos we iz so street.
We like how this one’s been styled with hi-tops, as though you might pop to the newsagent to pick up an emergency tub of Bisto on a Sunday afternoon.
The grey marl fabric sets off the ears a treat, though some might say this is a more lightweight onesie; depends how high you have your central heating cranked up, I guess.
Another men’s design (why do the fellas get all the cool prints, we wonder?), but we love this monochromatic moo cow print. You certainly won’t be freezing – just Fresian, heh.
Unleash your inner rude girl with this of-the-moment design *insert ‘baroque and roll’ line here*.
We say: wear with outsize hoop earrings, a jaunty snap-back cap and hi-tops. Make sue you roll up one of the legs a la LL Cool J in the early 90s and you iz be well snug innit.
So. Is it ok to wear onesies to work yet?
