What Is A Romper?
You’ve probably heard the word “romper” floating around the fashion world. But are you really sure you know what a romper is?
Many people will tell you that a romper is a one-piece outer garment. But does any kind of one-piece garment—even pieces with long legs qualify as a romper? Not necessarily.
A romper is a piece of clothing consisting of a shirt with attached shorts, commonly worn by toddlers. Though originally designed for children, rompers have developed dramatically to become fashion attire for women.
But not all one-piece outer garments qualify as a romper. For it to be called a romper, it must-have shorts. Period! A one-piece garment with legs that go past the knee lenght is referred to as a ‘jumpsuit’ not a romper.
Are Rompers Still in Style in 2020?
Trends come and go but there is one piece that’ll always look awesome—no matter the occasion, day, or season. And that’s no other than the romper.
Whether you’re a fashionista or simply looking for a light, yet stylish outfit, the romper might just be the perfect addition to your existing wardrobe.
Rompers first appeared in the US in the early 1900s. They were popular as playwear for children because they were seen as ideal for movement. In the late 1950s, their popularity surged when women began using them as beachwear.
Thereafter, rompers continued to be used by infants and toddlers, and with time, became less common among women, although never disappearing entirely. However, in 2010, the romper dress and romper with shorts hit the runaway, making a huge comeback.
Today, the floral romper has become the epitome of style and classical coolness, owing to its ability to give a very feminine form. Experts agree that rompers will know no bounds in 2020. The romper trend will continue to grow and you can expect to see interesting iterations on the runway from 2020 and beyond.
Cool Ways to Wear Rompers
Rompers and jumpsuits come in many styles, colors, and prints. If you want to make a statement with your outfit, a romper is a great place to start.
You can choose a floral romper, especially ones with bold colors like red if you want to keep things flirty. This one will surely make you steal the spotlight.
Not fond of bright colors?
Go for plain designs—picture a white and black combination. This combination will give you professional looks that go with formal events. If you want to achieve a more casual appearance, go for a romper or jumpsuit with a fun printed style, complemented with your favorite jewelry.
