The Find: a perfectly cozy, perfectly ridiculous outfit for Christmas morning

North Americans have thus far been spared from one of 2013’s biggest—and most regrettable—trends in Europe and the UK: the adult onesie, which is essentially a baby suit writ large, minus the feet. But, given its popularity among fashion it-girls (Cara DelevigneAlexa Chung), musicians (Rihanna, One Direction) and even Hollywood hunks (Brad Pitt), it was only a matter of time before the craze arrived on the continent. Last week, Hoodsie, a start-up co-founded by 22-year-old Torontonian Lisa Carole, launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of their Pima cotton onesies. Ten days in, they’ve sold nearly 200 sweatpant jumpsuits (including 10 made from show-stopping gold lamé). Carole says the suits’ slim cut makes them “adult onesies you can actually wear in public.” We wouldn’t go quite that far, but the suits do seem like a cozy option for lazy weekend mornings—and slightly less ridiculous than the Snuggie. $55–$150.

Available through Kickstarter.com until January 12.
