I think these look quite sexy. But they might make it awkward to go for a wee. What do you think?
shorts/dress thing. You'd have to take it off to go for a wee.
playsuits are fine on babies and small children, but I can imagine a camel toe type situation if a grown-up wore one.
it's like.... basically an all in one, like dungarees but with a shirty top and short legs?
to make what sounds like the worst item of clothing ever made sound exciting and fun?
the picture makes that REALLY obvious...
i thought you were talking about those all-in-one romper suit things that toddlers wear
slightly different cut.
They look silly on almost everyone in the world. if you buy it online it might be completely shit when it arrives!
this is just a picture example.
But that camel toe thing could be a real danger, make sure the body is long enough and you don't shrink it in the wash without noticing!
It should come in that nice towelling material, then it'll be a proper playsuit.
and shorts that are all tied together so it's an all in one. There's a picture up there ^^^^ Hot or Not?
ladies gamble around like young goats, playfully with the sun in their hair and the wind in their eyes. And they giggle and sometimes kiss a bit.
But ONLY in the playsuit.
And how many airmiles it can get
gamble, haven't you soon those goats in blackpool?
it's like it's fucking 1982 all over again.
I'm permanently 18 in my head...
this is just as bad an idea.
the hooded jersey playsuit (have they got a red one?!), and the strappy playsuit and one in between, I think it was called the all in one playsuit?
we can admire each others squiz :)
now, can we find a boy who like them...?
I think they're really cute, plus there's less decisions to be made in the morning!
'Shall I go out looking like a cunt' are instantly made for you when you put on of those fucking abominations on.
In the same way you'd look great with a bread knife stuck in your face.
It's the worst item of clothing I've ever seen, ever.
But at the moment it's only realy your beret that causes me trauma. However, and I really mean this: if you wear one of these 'playsuit' things, I will not talk to you.
my beret is ace! Are you not used to it yet?
HAS to buy one...?!
If someone I knew, ANYONE I knew, walked into a pub wearing this I would laugh in their face. I wouldn't be able to help it. They'd look like an extra from a mid-80's Australian docu-drama.
You thought it was a dress!!
Those shorts...just. Wrong. Wrong, I tell you!
some of them are cute. But some of them just bring back images of Tai in Clueless, in that ill-advised short-dungarees + pink shirt combination.
They'd be cute, but not worn the way lots of people will wear them [i.e. inches of fake tan and strappy heels. Ugh.]
What they need is bovver boots! :D
one of my favourite dresses is a voluminous pregnancy thing, boys don't seem too keen...
I've got a dress and a coat that are fitted at the top and then straight after your boobs they balloon out into a nice bell. I love them and other girls love them but they're no good for man attracting..
Theo. Actually awful.
I'm trying to be constructive as I feel I'm too much of a curmudgeon.
But you're right. THEY'RE ALL A PILE OF SHIT!
I'm leaving the country.
but we did playsuits in LAST summer's collection (that is 2 years ago on the catwalk and last year in the shops)
I don't think anyone bought any either :(
because the girls didn't want to look HAWT?!
band called "Playsuits"?
I've just formed them
to put on a top and shorts separately?
one day i will get it right.
a short dress that isn't going to expose your knickers to the world should a gust of wind catch you unawares. It's cute and quite sexy but a bit more demure than a dress.
dresses can be cute. i just think they look weird.
it was from a collection called Garden of SWEden where the concept was global warming benefitting scandinavia by turning it into a tropical paradise
the print is stockholm landmarks surrounded by palm trees and other such vegetation - nice
unanimous condemnation of this item of clothing on here from male posters. why would girls buy something that is guaranteed to remove all hotness? makes no sense.
I don't think the male DiSsers are generally clued up about ladies fashion
they still know that that particular item of clothing would render 90% of the female population asexual...
idea of fashion a pretty horrific one anyway, to be honest.
the concept of changing trends applies to EVERY industry
and without it culture would stagnate
but with clothing it just seems so much more artificial than anywhere else. and clothing isn't culture.
what other forms of primary non-verbal communication and sub-cultural identification are more important?
think most people dress the way they do for sub-cultural reasons?
ever since tribes picked up bits of coloured earth and drew marks on their skin right up to the present day
communicate anything with the clothes i way. please tell me why i am wrong.
and that for instance an emo goth or a fashionista is to the 'left' or 'right' of your position normal
but of course the emo goth or the fashionista thinks that THEY are the position normal and so to them you indicate in your dress that you belong to a different subcultural group that identifies themselves slightly differently with the world
it doesn't matter how big or mainstream your group is - if there are other groups in existence your mark your position (or indeed communicate 'I have no position') by what you wear
my clothing communicates that i'm neither an 'emo goth' or a 'fashionista' ..... right.
nothing else, though. except that i'm not a member of various identifiable subcultures
of the large group of males who conform to the idea that to make the minimum of effort in the way they dress is acceptable
it's a look
when/if you put a suit on you communicate something entirely different
i would argue that a lot of people into fashions (whatever they may be into) don't view themselves as being in the position normal - 'tribal indentity' and all.
in that they are communicating their sub cultural identity as belonging away from the mainstream of society
I follow fashion because I like clothes. Some things I wear are 'in fashion' and some really aren't. I tend to wear things for years. I just thought one of these might look nice on me.
sorry, there was no implicit criticism of you. i just get the impression that, to remain constantly fashionable, you would have to do nothing but follow fashion - and i just think there are much better things that people could do with their time.
Depends on your definition of fashionable. There are those that salivate over every single trend, often with distressing results [ladies and gentlemen, I give you this summer's 'must-have' - the turban].. or, if it interests & amuses you to do so, you can pick up on a few of the ideas/colours/styles floating around right now, and work them into a wardrobe of clothes you already like. This is what lots of people do. It doesn't take up all their time or mental energy.
Something people seem to be missing on this thread is that fashion is fun. Playing around with your appearance, dressing up, using your body and your aesthetic choices as a frame for visual expression... it doesn't have to be the most serious thing in the world.
really found it fun. i've tried to get into it but always found it thoroughly depressing. Firstly, because most things look bad on me and secondly because after i buy something i feel anxious about how much money i've spent...
it's gone now. Not sure why, I think mainly it's the money thing, I don't worry about it now.
i don't really have any money. you have a decent job after all...
Fair enough. Lots of us do though.
In fact I'm off to go shopping. :D
no, i would like to look good in things. i just usually don't.
and if you think that liking clothes = liking fashion then you didn't read the thread properly...
my music taste isn't really affected by trends THAT much ... certainly i wouldn't listen to something bad because it was fashionable.
to the max
please do enlighten me oh pretentious one
stop being so blinkered!
i communicate via fabric and don't realise that my musical taste is heavily influenced by fashions and trends. it strikes me as pretty pretentious stuff.
and not affected by anything anywhere? Of course you are, well done.
but i'm probably closer than most.
actually that was quite wankerish. but i do think i'm reasonably insulated from trends.
trends in recording technology, trends in instrument technology...
how do you think it is broadcast?
trends in broadcast technology
how do you think it is written or performed?
etc etc ad infinitum ad nauseaum
true - your taste may not adhere to the cutting edge of what is 'hot right now' but everything that exists right now is as the result of various trends intercommunicating with one and other in the pea soup of modern life - some being flashes in the pan, some becoming industry standards
fashion is way more intellectual than you give it credit for - which is of course not to say that it is an esteemed church of ruminating genii but it's potentially no less so than any other discipline
unfortunately you, like a lot of males, associate it with vanity but I think it's just as fascinating as music, art, literature, architecture, politics, philosophy, football whatever
associate fashion with vanity. i just don't have the time or the money for it. and i don't understand why some people make more time for it than anything else.
also, the fact that the music i listen to is a byproduct of trends doesn't mean that my taste is influenced by fashion, surely/
if it's not influenced by fashion what is it influenced by? the universal soul of God as inherited by you in the womb exclusively for your consumption so that the bands you listen to exist for you and you only?
you think t-shirts have existed forever? they are a surprisingly recent trend that came from the US navy in the 20th century
bla bla bla
don't make the mistake of thinking that your intellectual capacity should be reserved only for traditionally intellectual pursuits - it really takes the edge off your intelligence and is in itself just a fashion within certain disciplines
t-shirts have existed for my entire life and i've known nothing else.
it takes the edge off my intelligence? what?
as discussing west ham is about impressing your girl
i know ... although in reality i suspect women's fashion is at the very least tenuously connected to the approval of others.
but i would really struggle to be even slightly interested in someone wearing that. football fandom bores an awful lot of women but it doesn't have quite the same offputting effect
last weekend, i had a very brief conversation with a girl about football and she hates football. later on, i totally sexed her. but if she'd been wearing that all day, i'd have had second thoughts.
clothing probably governs my attraction to women more than most things ... it would have been a difficult obstacle
it will reach the provinces sooner or later
possibly, there are plenty of people in provincial cities without minds of their own. london just has more of them.
That's not to say that I don't still think this item would look silly on the majority of people
sense are you agreeing with him?
the "playsuits" are not neccesarily ridiculous, that cyclical fashion is a good thing on the whole and that the general male opinion on here is not likely to dissuade women from wearing something that they like.
please add some sense of irony to these posts or I may have to hunt you down and stamp on your head.
oh, hang on .... are you joking too?
if a woman i liked told me a particular item of clothing i wore was shit, i would probably destroy it. but i don't think i have the time or money to be attractively well dressed.
i can see why a lady would wear something that attracts mild disapproval but not absolute disapproval.
why is cyclical fashion a good thing/
The clothing industry would be fucked as people would only buy clothes when they wore out. I know a lot of people don't place great importance on "fashion" but the same principle applies to a lot of other industries too. An example would be the way computers are always switching between having white/black/cream/whatever hardware. It keeps people interested and helps to sell the new products.
I'm not exactly interested in looking like I just fell off the catwalk but I do enjoy buying new clothes and if nothing else I'd be terribly bored without these seasonal changes.
The playsuit, when I buy one in every colour, will be the cherry on the top of a very fucking excited cake
it really isn't the be-all and end-all. Fashion = expression as well as attraction. I have worn things I was told by everyone looked ridiculous - because when I looked in the mirror, I liked what I saw. While I will ask for opinions on things, if I'm going to buy and pay for and wear the thing, how I feel in it interests me takes priority.
this. i totally agree. i don't see why something can look 'good' for about 6 months and then shit for the rest of time.
you two are like a couple of miserable old men. Fashion is fun, neither Sophie or I could be labelled followers of it, but if things come up that we like and WE think look good then why the fuck not? Would you like everyone wearing a generic jeans and tee uniform? If we didn't have designers, generating new trends, rehashing old trends then where would the newness and fun be in our wardrobes? If you're happy in your never changing clothes that's cool, but if people want to have fun in what they wear and that makes you angry, that's your problem noone elses. You seem intimidated by the playsuit!
i like clothes on other people, i just don't understand why some people consider adherence to fashion important. since it's waste of intellectual energy.
my point was more or less the same as yours.
why anybody would meticulously follow fashion but i can see why people like and take clothes buying quite seriously..
I've only started in the past few years since I've had more cash and it's been easier. I love it now though.
I don't think I've missed the point, you two made this into an anti fashion rant. The playsuit is just something new, you've chosen to connect it with being a fashion junkie rather than something that's come up that appeals.
Maybe the fact that the first website was linked had Lohan on it, but that's what that site does.. but it also happens to produce new clothes quickly and for not much money.
i guess i'm just startled that anyone can think that those things look half-decent
are you joking?? There's just a slight chance that some people will think something looks good and other people will hate it!!! Same with food, music, blah blah blah..
this is all true
eventually you get used to it.
we should start a support group
your determination. good luck.
thinks it's hawt :)
not everything we wear is designed to elicit approval from guys, it's just a nice added extra!
i just find it bizarre that women often contemplate wearing things that almost all men find revolting...
would say i find that almost equally bizarre.
although i don't think all women would say they found it revolting, to be honest
to know a girl who wore rugby shirts all the time and because she was awesomely hot i quite like that ... really shameful
we're actually all lesbians.
in the style of lindsay lohan?
unless they're putting out a range of playsuits which look like rakes topped with hay, i don't get it?
are just put off because it's called a 'playsuit'?
it's basically just short dungarees, and i doubt they'd have such issues with those so....
and i don't usually fancy models.
it's because it's rank.
dungarees look shit aswell
you don't think this is hot?
that looks shit.
I'd love a proper old skool towelling romper suit, in yellow, just like when I was a baby.
That thing was the LIVING END in comfort
I agree with you on alot of things but this - no no I can never agree with you!
They are hideous!!!
has an adult sized romper suit, with built in feet bits and all.
well, for lounging around pre/post bed. well i dunno, maybe she sleeps in it. i'm not up to date on her night time habits.
when he shows up wearing one.
goes to a job interview wearing one.
a rude comment to be made about pink hoods here, but I'm not going to be the one who makes it.
BUT it looks hot on her! I suspect only a great body and brazen attitude would carry this off. I have neither.
Hand me my hooded catsuit with detachable rainbow suspenders
come into it?
she looks mint in it.
got the figure for it.
I couldn't manage a red satin one. But black cotton? Maybe?
you'll great in any. I like that red with the navy from that pic.
Rach would look good in anything! I think that playsuit is more about confidence than figure. If you can find shorts to suit you then you can wear one of them.
She did look V hot indeed.
Rachel would look good in anything - she is beautiful!
i am a lucky wanker.
but Rach is lucky to have you!! :)
they don't look ridiculous. That's awesome.
what this thread is all about please?
Some people like it. Some people don't. In the middle, some people go off on tangents about the role of fashion in life. I didn't read that bit properly though, so you might need to go and take a peek.
I think some people fell out though. It got quite tense up there. I stayed out of it because I love everybody and falling out with people affects my psyche.
Are you a Welsh emblem or a stream of piss?
I lobe that word!
bamos telling nice squirrel she'd looke better with a breadknife in her forehead. And jack el biscuit talking about rusks.
but these, as with most things, can be both awesome and hideous. I once found the most amazing one in a vintage shop, it was YELLOW and made of towelling :D iwas going to wear it to truck for lolz then i chickened out.
Some of the topshop ones are hideous though....
is more or less what this thread says.. I want a towelling one, you should wear it!
if i ever find another one though...
