TREND: Romp n’ Roll

Neon fanny pack, water bottle, sunscreen, bug repellant, bandana, and comfy sandals. What is missing from your 2010 music fest list? Why, a rockin’ romper of course! The classic outfit for any occasion and one of this season’s hottest trends, rompers are not only adorable, but they can be practical too.

Yes, music festival’s can be dirty and sweaty, and yes it can be nearly impossible to look cute. You have to deal with long lines, lots of people, and, unfortunately, a port-o-potty or two. The perfect solution: A romper. The relaxed, loose fit is perfect for transitioning from long, hot days to cool summer nights. Originally designed as the classic children’s garment ideal for movement, the one-piece shape will help maintain comfort indoors and outdoors, from casual to upscale. A timeless and whimsical romper keeps any Fashionista’s style in check.

One fashionable U of I student paired a long-sleeved tribal print romper from Catherine’s with simple black leather sandals from Target. The festive print is perfect on its own or paired with effortless accessories. Try hoop earrings, a leather cuff, or a skinny gold belt.

Hint: Concerned about bathroom breaks? Consider a skirted or detachable version like those featured at ModCloth. The variety of prints is fantastic and the affordable prices make it an essential College Fashionista site.
