Rompers are undeniably adorable, and guess what? They’re still in style! In fact, since their origin as children’s wear in the early 20th century, rompers have found a way to be relevant in almost every decade, including the 2020s. Here are the main reasons we’re still loving the romper trend.
With a romper, it’s one and done—no scrabbling around your closet or dresser to match this blouse with that skirt or those shorts with that shirt. Rompers are a ready-made outfit all in one. All you have to do is choose shoes and accessories. For a fun, casual look (plus some sun protection), top it off with a baseball cap, or in cooler weather, a beanie.
Rompers go from shopping to lunch with the girls to after-work drinks with no problem. Even better, the shorts that make up the bottom half provide coverage that doesn’t blow around in the breeze, and you don’t have to constantly worry about pulling a skirt down or coverage on your bottom half.
There’s a Romper for Every Body Type
Rompers come in cold shoulder, square neck, V-neck, sweetheart, or boatneck bodices. Some even have collars. The shorts part can be fitted, flared, or flowy, and the waist can be cinched or loose. Whatever your assets, there’s a romper style that will show them off.
The neckline you choose will either draw or deflect attention from your top half. A belt will emphasize your waist, while an elastic waist provides ease for a tummy.
Play with stripes, prints, or solids depending on your height and whether you want to emphasize or disguise your shape. If you’re petite, choose small prints. If you’re all about legs, choose a solid color that won’t distract from them.
Rompers Are Fun
Let’s face it, one of the main reasons we’re still loving the romper trend is that rompers are just plain fun! They’re so cute, and they’re naturally playful. After all, they were originally developed for toddlers to play in, and then they evolved into swim and beachwear, tennis wear, and leisure wear. They’re comfortable, and most come in lightweight fabrics that are perfect for summer fun. So whether you’re planning a picnic, a pool party, or a pep rally, a romper will fit right in.
