“I’d probably never wear flip-flops with a romper. Instead I’d go for low block heels to keep my outfit looking put together." — Michelle Scanga, Managing Editor
“For some reason, the combination of a romper and sneakers reminds me of a kid at a theme park, so that’s one I avoid. Instead, I’d opt for subtle sandals, whether flat or with a low block heel.” — Nicole Akhtarzad, Market Editor
“I would never wear round-toe ballet flats with a romper. Since I am on the shorter side, I prefer to slip into shoes that give me a little height while still offering comfort like these block-heel mules from By Far.” — Lauren Eggertsen, Associate Editor
“The only rompers I own are breezy swimsuit cover-ups, so I would never wear loafers with them because they’re too stuffy and office-like. Instead, I’d wear summer-ready sandals like these pretty gold versions.” — Erin Fitzpatrick, News Editor
“I’d never wear ankle boots with a romper. The proportions would be all off! Instead, I love nice mules along with a cute flouncy romper." — Aemilia Madden, Editor
“High-heeled ankle boots and rompers definitely aren’t friends in my book. I actually don’t remember the last time I wore anything but slide sandals, mules, or sneakers with a romper. I’d love to wear these denim espadrille mules with a white one.” — Allyson Payer, Editor
