Rompers have been spotted all over celebrities for a while now and have infiltrated retail stores, but every one I’ve tried on has either been too short for my torso or, um, given me camel toe.
I don’t want to look like a blind grandma on a tropical vacay or a trailer park fashion victim, but I know there has to be a way for me to work the romper trend. If bohemian stars like Mischa Barton and Kate Hudson can pull them off, so can I.
While the look can be either casual hippie (loose and floral) or Studio 54 glam (black and fitted), I’m opting for the first option for a playful look for day. The coral romper above is by Free People and retails for $148 (www.freepeople.com).
Rompers are definitely something I have to try on in the store, instead of buying online, but they are something I’m willing to experiment with this spring.
