What to Wear to the Apocalypse of 2012


Dressing for any apocalypse is all about preparedness and layers. If one layer catches on fire, it’s important to have another layer underneath it. Eye protection from falling debris, rocks being hurled at you, and abrasive lights from sudden explosions is KEY.

It is best to stay away from colors too bright (avoid that bright red shirt in the hat image, for instance) because it is the same as scrawling “zombie target” or “great when roasted!” across your face.

Disclosure: the knife is for foraging purposes only.

Garments with pockets will improve your survival rate by 10%.

If you wear stilettos you will be making more room for me in the world. (Thanks!) Boots with low heels are heartily recommended.

    You’re only disadvantage, if it can be called one, is your majestic height and your gorgeous face which will always call attention to you which in an apocalyptic situation is maybe not ideal. However, wearing black, grey, and asphalt will go some way to making you blend in with the great urban entropy.

    Those boots are killer. Betsey Johnson…her stuff, all together, doesn’t do it for me, but one piece at a time? Sure thing!!

    Her stuff was more to my taste when I was a young fashion student. Her style hasn’t evolved much. I’m like you – I enjoy certain pieces but not he r whole look. I picked those boots because the rest of the outfit was so loose and comfy and a little on the tomboyish side – I thought it needed a more feminine touch somewhere. Ruffles on boots? Yes please!
