Hear the word "romper," and here's what we see: Strollers, sandboxes, Juicy Juice, PBS daytime shows- anything geared towards the under-six set. But, as we've seen this season, the romper is no longer exclusively for those with babysitters and mid-morning naps. The classic playground staple has made its way into high fashion territory, and it's a force to be reckoned with. Kate Moss featured the Guatemalan Playsuit in her TopShop collection, and American Apparel has recently introduced several one-piece versions of their signature knits. We've also spotted short jumpsuits at H&M, Urban Outfitters, and Forever 21 (not to mention on every block in Soho, too.) Sift in the rompers of fashionoids like Nicole Richie, and the trend is that much harder to ignore. We're all in favor of easy summer ensembles, but we have to question just how easy a romper would be to actually pull off. So, we're posing the question: Are rompers cute and wearable, or a really bad idea? --SARAH MUEHLBAUER, as inspired by SABRINA BACON and her MANDATE OF HEAVEN obsession.
