Romping Around Chicago – How to Wear a Romper at 40+


Okay so I literally own 2 pair of shorts, one pair I made by cutting a pair of old denim pants and the other pair I thrifted last year.  I just don’t buy short pants because to be honest I am not absolutely in love with my 40 plus knees…lol.

Rompers are such a huge fashion trend this year and when I stumbled upon this blue and yellow plaid one at the banana republic factory store last month for 19.99, I had to give it a try.


We took the kids to Chicago a few weeks ago for our yearly family vacation and let me just tell you it was HOT!!!  The weather was perfect for me to try out my new romper.  It was the perfect outfit for our day of sightseeing and shopping.  I paired it with my yellow cardigan and white sneakers for a totally dressed down look.  The romper was the perfect length and the lightweight cotton material was great for the hot summer temps.  With near 100 degree temps, my knees were the last thing I was thinking about.

RomperSo ladies YES, you can wear a romper if you are 40 plus.  There are so many different styles and lengths to choose from.   My suggestion would be to try a few on to see which style is best for your body type and comfort level.    Add a cardigan (long or short) or a denim jacket and vest and your ready for any casual outing.  I was definitely ready to take on Chicago in mine!
