We have always claimed that the adult onesie is a versatile garment and recent stories really show what we mean. Of course the word “onesie” covers a multitude of designs and not just cute pyjamas. High fashion onesies were out in force at the BET awards in the US. These were established fifteen years ago by the Black Entertainment Television (BET) network to celebrate African Americans in various fields of entertainment. Their voting academy is made up of about 500 people from the music industry, media, and high profile bloggers. This article from Bustle states, “The jumpsuit proved its worth as a style staple tonight for sure; looking fantastic on stars ranging from Beyoncé to Alicia Keys, in styles that ranged from the dramatically dapper to bohemian romance, this onesie wonder made effortless red carpet style look easy.” And the Telegraph fashion section brought us 10 luxe pyjama shirts which are dressy enough for cocktail hour.
From fashion onesies to something a little less formal. We read that two Irish women are running a crowdfunding campaign for their business venture WellyWetSuit. They have designed a Waterproof Onesie which offers head to toe protection and is aimed at festival goers in those parts of the world where summer is a bit erratic. Whether you choose Wet Willy Onesies or cute pyjamas you should like our Cute Adult Onesie with a teddy bear print at only £19.95.
But be warned, just because a friend recommends some Cute Pyjamas doesn’t mean you should snap them up. Take heed of this story which hit social media from Scotland but it’s for adults only. A Ms Brown took to Twitter to show the dangers that may lurk when choosing cute pyjamas. She found a nice pair in retailer Ann Summers but when she got home and put them on she realised that the design showed people having sex. Look closely and you can see that they are definitely X Rated. Perhaps Brown should have paid more attention to the small print, the retailer makes clear on its website the summer pyjamas may look cute and innocent “but upon closer inspection…it’s naughtier than you think.”
Former BBC boss Alan Yentob admitted he relies on a trusted pair of red-checked pyjamas as his standard outfit, whether he’s touring the refugee camps of Calais or yacht-hopping at the Cannes Film Festival. “I’ve got hundreds of clothes but I only wear pyjamas,” he said. “I auctioned a pair off for a charity set up after my godson died. I didn’t want to but [someone] bid £170, and I only paid £20 for them.” If you get in touch Alan, we’ll send you a free funzee onesie to make up for the good deed.
