Remember Wearing Rompers And Playsuits?
Hold the presses.....1940s and 1950's Playsuits, Rompers and Jumpers have returned. But after spotting these cute numbers at a local trendy shop this weekend, I'm wondering if anyone over size 6 could actually wear the blousy Rompers without looking like a pumpkin.
Vocab For Playsuits, Rompers, Jumpers
Here is the scoop...Playsuits, Rompers and jumpsuits are generally one piece. Back in the day, Playsuits described casual summer wear which could be for "play" or swim. Rompers were similar to Playsuits but sometimes a bit more blousy, Jumpsuits could be short or long.
Just like the vintage cuties, you will find the updated versions in solids, exciting tropical prints, abstracts, plaids, geometrics. And it seems they are making them in plenty of easy care fabrics and styles to choose from.
Playsuits And Rompers Attracting Twenty-Something Gals
Ooh La, La, a trendy boutique in Avon, CT had a store filled with these retro inspired comfy apparel (newly manufactured) and the twenty something gals were thrilled to try them on. They had no idea their moms and grandma's wore them back in the 1940s and 1950s.
