Dear Marcy, Can I Wear Tights With My Romper?

Dear Marcy,

I bought this really cute little romper. Are those passé yet? Not sure I care – so cute and comfy!

Am I committing a major faux pas, if I wear tights under my romper? My calves and the outsides of my quads look fabulous. The upper/inner part of my leg… um…

Just, no.

Nobody needs to see that.

If tights are “wrong”, I can always do something like leopard print, so it looks like I’m trying to be weird with my romper, rather than trying to hide cellulite.

xo, K.


Dear K,

Do not try to be weird with your romper.

Rompers are already weird. If you add leopard print tights, you will look like crazy Aunt Ethel who everyone avoids at the family pot luck. And if that’s the case, you might as well go all out – put on a shower cap, hang out in the corner with a box of Sara Lee and a glass of ice cubed White Zin and be done with it.

Don’t do it. Please.

You need a jumpsuit. Buy something that looks like the ones below and then call to thank me when you feel fab. You’ll know because you’ll be drinking whiskey, eating sushi, and every man, woman, and cat will be vying for your attention.

meow, marcy

Acceptable rompers. According to Marcy.

      I am going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding and was trying to get the bride to let us wear that Ralph Lauren jumpsuit instead of a dress. She didn’t go for it but I think it is sooooo cool!

        That WOULD have been cool. So cute, comfy, different and wearable again. I have been in 4 weddings and in one of them I was the only attendant so I got to just wear a nice dress I already had and it was awesome. I have no questions for Marcy at this time bc I already know the answer.

          Ohhhh… that is so great that you got to wear a dress that you already owned and looked great in! Bridesmaids dresses are so difficult to figure out.

          are u sure? don’t u want to run it by me anyway? i’m an expert at giving advice nobody wants.

    I so love Marcy! She tells it like it is and really knows what she’s talking about. I love those jumpsuits! The rompers are actually cute too but only if you’re younger than 10.

      thank you. send me a question so i can tell you how to live your life.

    Bahahaha! What an excellent feature. When I read the headline, I hesitated. I haven’t even braved a jumpsuit or romper yet, let alone considered layering tights underneath. I appreciate Marcy immediately setting me straight. lol Full pants definitely remedy that issue, removing some of the temptation to commit major “faux paws.” Thanks for leading us onto the path of style righteousness, Marcy.

    I like that Ralph Lauren jumpsuit! Too bad you didn’t get to wear it for the wedding…

    I have still not jumped onto the jumpsuit bandwagon. I think maybe that style is too young for me. (gasp)

    • Reply MarcyVeryMuch September 7, 2015 at 7:02 pm

      Noooooo….. Lianaaaaaaa… jumpsuits are definitely NOT too young for you!!! Absolutely not! You would look fabulous in one!
