WTF Tuesday: Rompers

I've decided to start a weekly post about things I just don't get. This week's selection is the now trendy piece of clothing known as the romper. With some calling it a onsie (yes, like what an infant wears), the romper is typically a one piece shorts/shirt combo that young ladies wear with heels, wedges, or another one of my favorites: gladiator sandals.

Rompers have been spotted on the runway...


On the red carpet...


And on the streets of Hollywood/NYC/your-home-town...


They're everywhere and honestly? I just don't get it. Why on earth would a grown woman want to wear anything that a newborn baby wears? I get that they're comfortable and easy to throw on, but so are footie pajamas and you don't see people walking around outside in those.

If you're ever a guest on The Ellen Show, you can wear footie pajamas in public. Other than that, only in the privacy of your own home, please.

What do you think? Am I the only one that hasn't jumped on the romper bandwagon?

Oh I hate rompers! Worst thing ever. Is it really that hard to put on a separate pair of pants?

I'm so with you on this. The other things I don't like about them is you pretty much have to take off everything you're wearing to go to the bathroom. It's like wearing a body suit (ew, remember those?) with no snaps!

Oh so gross. What woman in her right mind would want to deal with that all day??

No, no it isn't. It is even easier to put on a dress. At least in a dress you wouldn't have to get naked to pee.

I don't think any normal non-model or celebrity could pull this off, but that being said, I think they're really cute on the model/celebrity crowd. Sadly, because they're becoming popular, we will eventually see them on normal people. Just like we see skinny jeans on "normies." I just don't think those things work on anyone that isn't under 100 lbs.

Beware! I already see normies wearing them down here in LA. Granted, I think I've only seen skinny minnies in them, but I have definitely seen several normal people wearing them. I even heard this woman yell out "A ONSIE!" in Target the other day while pointing at an adult romper. She was a little too excited about it.

I am so not a fan. Maybe if I had a boy body and I was still in high school, but I kept picking up what I thought were dresses a few weeks ago and being really disappointed.

I can't get behind the romper OR jumpsuit trend. Just...no thank you. I'll stick to my dresses and jeans/t-shirts. I really try my best to avoid any article of clothing that will either a) look like a child or b) give me the dreaded camel toe. Some trends should just GO AWAY.
