Rompers: Having the best of both worlds!

Trends for LESS

The last of winter's snow has finally melted [knock on wood], and the coming of spring and eventually summer is upon us. With that being said, young women on campus are anticipating the start of dress weather; we all want to put our snow boots in the back of our closet and forget about them until next winter rolls around! There's only one closet must that surpasses the classic spring dress, and that item is the romper. Innovative and sleek, it is bound to turn some heads this spring, and make its mark way into the summer months!

I know what you're thinking, what's so great about a romper, and what separates it from the classic casual dress all girls know and love? A romper is a complete clothing item in one piece. It has the appearance of a dress, but instead of a flowing bottom, the dress turns into shorts. [You can think of it as the marriage of shorts and dresses]. With the cuteness of a dress yet the comfort of shorts you can't go wrong! Step into your romper, zip up the back and away you go! The life of college women is fast paced and stressful, which leaves little time to plan a cute outfit for everyday of every week. [You have enough to worry about, with final exams on the horizon]! The romper is a quick, easy fix for those lazy days, enabling you to look cute with little to no effort! With all the work on your plate, every little fashion leeway makes a big difference.

Rompers are as versatile as the casual dress when it comes to the amount of colors and fabrics available. Whatever tickles your fancy: floral print, primary colored-cotton, or even leather, there is a romper for everyone's significant personal style. Many popular department stores carry a wide variety of rompers for a few bucks and some change! I recently bought an extremely cute royal blue romper from Forever 21 at the sale price of $9.80, a real steal if you ask me! I can pair my romper with most of my favorite shoes, such as my blue Vans canvas sneakers or my knee-high black boots. The options are practically endless, and during the spring is a great time to pair your new romper with a pair of adorable flats or trendy sandals. [It's really up to you and your fashion preferences]! Want to wear a cutesy dress but prefer the comfort of shorts? Search no more, for the romper is the sleek combination between a dress and shorts, a picture-perfect marriage! It all comes down to comfort, versatility and style, and the romper contains all three!
