Rompers 2008: No Longer Just For Babies

August 27, 2008 by SheFindsCatesby

Here's the scene at my office yesterday. Two girls came in wearing similar shorts-and-top one-piece outfits. "Nice romper," Girl Number One said as she walked past the other girl's desk. "Nice romper you, too," Girl Number Two replied. "Oh!" cried our fashion assistant from across the room.  "I have a romper in my closet, too! I'll wear it tomorrow!" Then I really charged up the conversation with my brilliant contribution of…"Uhh, what's a romper?"

Welcome to Romper 2008. When you hear the word "romper,"you probably think–as I did–of the adorable onesie that small children wear to, well, romp. But my, how out of touch we are! Adult rompers are in right now, big time. Here's the Yumi Kim version ($129) that Girl Number One rocked yesterday:

Yes, that top is connected to those shorts. Girl Number One looked fabulous in this little number, pairing it with gold platform wedges (though she says she also wears it with gladiator sandles). Girl Number Two work-ified this summery Diane von Furstenburg Lynnia Romper ($255) with a brown cropped jacket and flats. Sans jacket,it would turn heads at a garden party or Sunday brunch.

Look–even Marc Jacobs has gotten into the romper action. Here's his Marc by Marc Jacobs Aster Stripe knit version ($138).

I fear that this garment is one of the many that only looks good on thin girls with narrow thighs. That description–sigh–excludes me. But then again, I thought I'd never wear skinny jeans, either, and now my drawers overflow with last season's tighter-than-tight denim. And they're such cute little outfits–grab it from the closet in the morning and voilá! You're dressed for the day.
