Let’s start with the facts. Rompers are not easy to pull off. First of all, rompers come with a ton of sizing issues. When the width is perfect, the length is too long. When the top fits, the bottom doesn’t. You like the color, but it just looks weird on. We get it. We understand the struggle. But just because it is hard to find a romper with the perfect fit, doesn’t mean that real girls can’t wear them. And when we say “real girls” we mean REAL girls, like you and I, not fashion bloggers, models, or the skinny chicks you see on the street. Real girls are girls that actually eat and aren’t a size triple zero.
When it comes to rompers, styling is also an issue. There are so many different types out there that sometimes it is hard to figure out which one is right for a certain occasion. Some are made for the beach or pool, while others are made for the club, or even the office. Some look bettter with heels. Others don’t. So how do you know what to do? How do you choose just one? The fashionista/model/blogger solution: buy one and miraculously style it perfectly for every occasion. The real girl solution: get a casual one and a dressy one so you don’t have to put in that kind of effort. It’s as simple as that.
Though sizing and stlying may be tricky, the best part about rompers is that they are one piece. That means no outfit choices. Who wants to waste time matching their shirt to their shorts? Not me. With rompers everything is attached, matched, and ready to go. And since real girls have busy lives, we like that.
Still not convinced? To prove that real girls can really pull them off, a few of the SHEfinds staffers volunteered to model and style their favorite rompers for you. In the photo above our Marketing Coordinator, Daniella, is wearing a peach lace romper with which she likes to style with sandals for casual spring outings. Editorial Assistant, Sara, claims that she’s had her romper for years, and she pairs it with flats. And last but not least, I wear my royal blue Old Navy Women’s Sleeveless Romper ($29.94) over my bathing suit when I hit the beach during the summer. See how great and versatile rompers are!
Now that you’ve seen them on real girls, you should have the confidence to wear a romper too! Shop for both casual and dressy rompers in our slideshow. You won’t want to miss out on this timeless trend.
