Women's Fashion: An Ode to Rompers and Open-Mindedness

    As a self-proclaimed giant, I have always stayed away from any clothing item that I don’t feel 100% confident in. Specifically, I make a conscious effort to wear anything that makes me look taller. Heels and baby-doll dresses, I’m talking to you.

    However, since I began working in the Women’s Fashion section of Bivouac, I've tried on everything, even new articles of clothing that I previously filed under the “Never Wear” category. At the top of that list: the romper.

    A romper (for anyone who doesn't know) is essentially shortened jumpsuit. There's that word I hate: "shortened". Rompers first appeared in the United States in the early 1900s and were worn originally as playwear for young children. Since roughly 2006, rompers have spiked in popularity among older girls and women as a warm weather staple piece.

    What appeals to me about the romper is its comfort value. My mother is not a fashionista by any means (love you, Mom!), but for as long as I can remember, she lamented the importance of clothing being comfortable before anything else. In a world of skin-tight haute couture and leather leggings, I've taken her perspective to heart.

    With her advice in mind, I want to now introduce my new clothing obsession and one that I am SO happy I was convinced to try on: The Rails Romper by Lily Denim.

   Made of a lightweight denim, this romper is not only insanely cute and practical for any sort of summer rendez-vous you could possibly imagine, but it’s also comfortable! With a drawstring waist and a breezy cut paired with the original "play wear" focus of the romper, this specific piece allows its wearer to fully experience as much fun and adventure (and plates of pasta) as they desire.

    Moral of the story? The next time you dismiss an article of clothing because you have a preconceived notion that it will not work on you, try to keep an open mind. The more time you spend around things you previously shut out, the closer you are to branching out and discovering your new obsession! The best aspect of shopping is the unknown possibility and promise one article of clothing can have. Even if rompers weren't your thing in the past, give them a try!
