The Top 3 Worst Occasions to Wear a Romper

Rompers are 100% a summer essential (for many reasons). They are easy, fun, convenient, and most of the time come in playful prints and designs. That said, there are certain situations when you'll quickly regret wearing the one-and-done piece. To save yourself the style dilemma, we’re sharing the top three times you may want to opt out of going the romper route.

At first, you may think a romper is the perfect option for a daylong festival, but there’s one main reason it’s not the best choice: the restroom situation, aka the portable toilet lot. You want to spend as little time as possible in those things, and wearing a romper can stall the process, since you have to entirely undress to use the restroom. So, the next time you’re planning your festival look, we suggest a cute matching set over a romper.


Although there are polished versions of rompers available, the style tends to lean toward the side of casual, so it’s best to stick to traditional office-appropriate looks when you’re attending a work or formal event. Save your jumpsuits for your weekend wardrobe.


Any large sporting event or concert held in a large stadium equals loads of stairs. And in a romper, that can mean a rising hemline and an uncomfortable look. If you plan to attend an event where you’ll be climbing several sets of stairs, your favorite short-style jumpsuit may not be your best bet. Instead, opt for loose shorts and a cute top or a casual dress.


Where else would you never wear a romper? We want to know in the comments below!
