Going off on one(sie) – it’s 2012’s most unattractive fashion trend


I’d like to jump in here to defend the onesie. Though not flattering to many – if any – what the onesie lacks in visual appeal, it makes up for in comfort. We've seen plenty of times before (especially in the winter) that people will turn to comfort over style and though said comfortable garments may be perceived as ‘ugly’, they will determinedly wear them anyway, until they somehow transcend their hideousness to become an accepted part of our fashion culture (hello, sheepskin boots). For this, I think that chilly shoppers should be applauded. The onesie is an unstoppable trend which I doubt is going to disappear any time soon, if for no other reason than it is very, very cold out. I think that we should accept the onesie and it’s comforting, warm, durable qualities and instead of reviling it, embrace a new era of ‘hug couture’.
