Do you ever have that dilemma in the morning where you don’t quite know what to wear? You know, the one where you finally settle on a top only to realize that the bottoms to match are in the wash. So you do a little more digging and find out all of your bottoms are MIA. As a result, you’re running around the house (pantless) like a Cali girl at a Wildfox sample sale. Sigh, the sartorial struggle is so real, ladies, which is why we found the perfect go-to piece for those not-so-glamorous mornings of playing Where The Hell Are My (insert lost garment here). It’s a little something called a romper.
By definition, a romper is 1.) A person or a thing that romps. Okay, we’ll take that, but more importantly, it’s 2.) A loose one-piece garment combining a shirt or blouse and short, bloomerlike pants, worn by young children. Woah, before you get all cray-cray on us because you’re a “grown woman,” let’s not forget that it’s also 3.) a similar garment worn by women and girls for sports, leisure activity, etc. Almost got you there, didn’t we? :) In a nutshell, it’s a top attached to a bottom that you can just slip on and go, day or night. Do we really need to say more?
So the next time you’re having a fashion fumble, bust out a trusty romper and continue on with your day. We promise it’ll give you that extra five minutes to grab an iced chai tea latte or finally give you a chance to chat with the hottie next door (you can thank us later).
