It's no secret that I LOVE rompers. I wear them for almost everything. High school reunions, weddings, a night out on the town, lunch with the girls... You name it and I've probably done it in a romper. I mean, let's get real. Rompers are kind of like a dress, but better. I love the idea of going into your closet, pulling one piece out and knowing that there's no confusion of whether your pieces coordinate. I also love that you can run, jump, swing and do a cartwheel in a romper. You can't do that in a dress.
Until now, I would have said that rompers are too playful for work. A work picnic, maybe, but to actually have a business meeting in a romper? Traditionally, I would say no. Well people, I have made a fashion discovery that will change romper limits forever. It took a boutique called Stay Fierce to show me the error in my ways. This romper is all business and I felt confident wearing it to a meeting with an executive.
A few things to keep in mind when shopping for a business romper. 1.) The hem length should be appropriate for an office. To be honest, the length of the shorts on this romper appear to be a bit short on me, but it's only an optical illusion. The inseam is at least three inches, but my insanely long legs make it appear to be on the short side. 2.) Your romper should have at least 3/4 sleeves. If your business romper is sleeveless or short sleeved, wear a blazer or cardigan to cover your shoulders and arms. 3.) Lastly, steer clear of floral print, ruffles or an obnoxious color like bright yellow on a business romper. Which ironically, is exactly what you SHOULD look for in a weekend romper.
