But when did we decide that what was practical and cute would be reserved for our children? So okay not to have the butter, the silver of the butter and the 06 of the creamer, but can we just agree for a little salted butter on our sandwiches please please? Understand the following: children’s clothes look way too comfortable, practical and on top of that they look pretty. So why not become a kid fashion addict as an adult?
1. The gloves tied together by a string and dangling from the end of the sleeves of the coat
Anyone who’s never lost a glove in their life, raise your hand. Without kidding, what is the guy who said to himself: after 10 years, we stop the practical string that connects the two gloves and we assume to be this ball which has 7 gloves of 7 different colors and models? And then we find ourselves writing you advice articles so as not to lose your gloves again, congratulations.
2. Snaps all along the crotch
Because the jumpsuit we agree is nice, it’s stylish, it’s chic and it doesn’t require much effort to get dressed but you still end up naked in the toilet. Whereas with the crotch dotted with press studs, that’s another story! On the other hand, be careful, we said well: press studs. And especially not scratch. In which case you can directly apply for the next sequel to Magic Mike and leave your children out of it for pity’s sake.
3. Hats with ears, eyes, smiles and all the rest
Let’s be honest: if everyone wore this kind of beanie, there would just be a lot less war on Earth.
4. The poncho or bathrobe
It’s simply the best invention in the world. That moment on the beach where you’re holding your towel with one hand, trying to take off your bathing suit with the other, while everyone else on the beach holds their breath, waiting for the accident you dread. Well none of that would ever happen with a good cute hooded beach cape.
5. Shoes that make light
It would be a bit like living the beginning of the “Billie Jean” music video all the time, except that instead of seeing the tiles light up under our feet, the light would emanate directly from us. Can you imagine the level of self-confidence that this kind of shoe can give? Question feeling of omnipotence, we are downright at the max.
6. The pilot suit aka the real bibendum coat
So yes, the skiers vaguely tried to copy the trick and we can salute their efforts but frankly, we are still far from the mark. The real pilot suit covers you from head to toe, that is to say, from the hood to the small slippers attached to the rest of the suit with the help of what, we give you a thousand? A press button, of course!
7. Colorful and not really matching patterns
Stripes at the top, big polka dots at the bottom, purple elephants on the arms, green penguins on the legs: strangely we never heard Cristina Cordula bring back her strawberry about the fashion faux pas of infants and children. So, what if she thought about stopping breaking them for a bit, us adults?
8. The everyday disguise
Yes, we come back to this story of self-confidence because we too would like to arrive at the office dressed as a tiger on Monday, as a Snow Queen on Tuesday, as a mermaid on Wednesday, dragonfly on Thursday and Friday – casual Friday oblige – we would make it simple with just a witch hat and a magic wand. In any case, it would earn us a lot of points for each powerpoint presentation in the meeting room!
9. Sleeping bag / sleeping bag
Can you dream of a better sleeping companion? It’s soft, fleecy, and unlike a sleeping bag, there are two holes to let your arms through and fidget at leisure all night long without the risk of finding yourself shivering at 3 a.m. because the duvet has screwed up. camp on the ground. The sleeping bag is to the night what salted butter is to toast: with unsalted butter it’s also fine but admit that the Guérande salt crystals give your breakfast a much tastier twist (yes, we like breakfast already so what?). Call for dressmakers: you can send your adult sleeping bag to the Topito editorial address, for a person measuring 1.70m, thank you!
10. The winged umbrella
So, no, we are not making a fix on the ears! But admit that we still feel much better under a red ladybug umbrella with black polka dots and big eyes that stick out than under a stupid black umbrella to avoid stabbing the umbrella in the eye of the pinpin opposite with the same idiot black umbrella…
Ready to completely overhaul your wardrobe and free yourself from the dictates of the adult world? We are waiting for your mismatched photos with winged hoods, crotch snaps and all the rest!
