My husband Mark doesn’t really have many opinions when it comes to my fashion choices. As long as I can be ready on time, he’s well trained with the “wow babe you look great!!” when I walk out of the room within my allotted hour of shower, dressed and out the door. However, the two pieces of clothes I get any sarcastic remarks about are rompers and jumpsuits. He detests them and with a quick polling of my guy acquaintances it seems to be the general consensus that men hate rompers.
Mark’s response to rompers
“I think your niece Avery (who is six) has an outfit that looks pretty similar to that”
My friend Kevin
“Rompers are awful, they are a rubix cube to get off and they aren’t flattering for a women’s body…..I assume they are all made by Oshkosh Bigosh”
Why women (and myself) personally love them. In my opinion it’s so much easier to throw on one piece and you are out the door. I don’t have to coordinate a top to a bottom and they are a great answer to the soaring Summer temps. They are also generally very affordable. It’s rare to find a romper ever priced too ridiculous. I think the one thing that is agreed upon by all…..you triple check that bathroom lock out in public. That’s all I’m going to say on that matter ;-)
How I Like to Style Rompers
My three suggestions for styling is to find one that cinches in at at the waist or add a skinny belt to give the silhouette some definition in at the waistline. Otherwise, they can be a bit shapeless and not form flattering. I prefer to wear mine with a shoe that has some height. That helps me feel like I’m not my 6 year old niece and gives your legs that mile long look. Last, I usually offset the rompers with an oversized bag. I like outfits with balance and feel that itsy bitsy outfits sometimes benefit from a larger accessory.
