Britain Loves a LaughWearing a onesie
What do you put on when you want to stay comfy and cosy but keep your look cool too? That would be a onesie. Britain has embraced the all-in-one suit with the enthusiasm of a baby ripping open a box of Rusks. They might not be the most practical item you’ll ever own – going to the toilet is tricky – but onesies are still flying off the shelves and into our wardrobes.
The perfect place for the onesie is the bedroom. If you’re coupled up, it doesn’t have the same romantic allure as a lace negligee, but your other half won’t be able to resist giving you a big cuddle. Although wearing your all-in-one will make you feel as if you’re being hugged anyway. And once they’re on, it’s very hard to make yourself take them off again, which is why so many Brits are seen running out to buy papers or popping to the post office in their adult babygrows.
They’re also perfect for dressing up. As well as coming in a variety of colours, fabrics and patterns, you can get suits to make you look like a dog, rabbit or even a dinosaur. If you’re into effort free fancy dress, you can wear your onesie to a party with pride and it doesn’t matter if you fall asleep in the cab home afterwards.
At festivals, it’s hard for anyone to get lost if someone in your group is dressed in a bright suit or looks like an animal. You could even instigate an all-in-one dress code for the weekend and get all your mates in matching onesies. And as the suits are becoming so popular, you could end up meeting more onesie wearing friends when you’re there. So do some great British bonding!
