Rock Your Romper

If you’re not sure about it, grab a romper like the one I’m wearing (above) and wear it around the house to get an idea of how you feel in it! The one I’m wearing above by N: Philanthropy is SO comfy, I could literally sleep in it. It’s like the most comfortable tee you own in romper form. The drawstring is also key, playing double duty: 1) defining the waist and 2) allowing you to control the size

I’m wearing it with some simple and chic accessories like these aviator sunglasses, dainty jewelry (earrings, necklace, choker, ring), and my favorite espadrille wedges by Treasure & Bond! You can see all of my favorite summer shoes in this post.

Tip #1 | Wear With Confidence

Only wear the romper if you feel confident and pretty! When you have confidence you look and feel better.

Tip #2 | Size Up

Depending on the romper you’re buying, you might want to size up. I always say to buy clothes that fit you. But if you’re trying out a romper for the first time, and you’re worried about how it might fit and feel. Buy a size up. You would rather have it a little loose than skin tight!

Tip #3 | Look At The Inseam

When you’re buying a romper, look at the inseam. If you’re used to buying shorts with a 3-inch inseam, look for a romper with a 3-inch inseam! If you own shorts that you think are too short on you now, look at the inseam and find a romper that has a longer inseam! This way you know you’re getting a length you’re comfortable with! Many rompers run SHORT. It’s a great option if you are petite, by the way.

Tip #4 | Shoe Choice

Wearing heels or wedges will make your legs look longer. Choose a skin-colored tone to really elongate your legs.

Tip #5 | Check Yourself Out

I suggest this with any outfit…make sure you look at yourself in the mirror from all angles! Just because a romper is super cute from the front, doesn’t mean it will look as nice from the back! So check out the rear view before you commit.

Tip #6 | Bathroom Situation

Many women shy away from the romper because it’s one piece and you don’t want to have to deal with basically getting naked every time you go to the bathroom. Just pull the shorts to the side and carefully pee. It’s so much easier and faster. I know you might be thinking ewww or I’ll get pee all over the place, but with looser fitting shorts, you don’t.
