Why Every Man Should Invest In A Male Romper

Why Every Man Should Invest In A Male Romper

"Sharing clothes with your girlfriend just got easier."

You've seen the photos. You've read the responses. You've come up with your own opinion of them in your head. Despite how you feel about them, male rompers have taken the internet by storm. If you're on the fence about liking them (or even totally decided), if you want the ladies' panties (or rompers) to be dropping at the sight of you, you need to get ahold of this stylish new trend.

1. You're probably not that far off anyway

"Ha ha ha, male rompers? Yeah right. I'll stick to my polo, salmon shorts and boat shoes." You're pretty close, might as well reduce the amount of articles of clothing your outfits require.

2. And maybe you'll look more masculine

The true test of masculinity isn't how deep you cut the sides of your cut offs or how many pockets your cargo shorts have. It is how comfortable you can be in your masculinity while wearing a patterned romper.

3. You can finally understand the struggle of your bladder nearly exploding when you're in a romper

Up until this point, this has been an exclusively female struggle. You have to pee like a racehorse, and suddenly you have to escape from a full body prison chamber so you can relieve yourself. Now you can understand and empathize. (And see why we take so long in the bathroom.)

4. It will be a conversation starter

No more awkward silences when meeting new people. Your new outfit is going to be the talk of the town.

5. Sharing clothes with your girlfriend just got easier

Girlfriend stealing your sweatshirts? Take her rompers. Simple.

6. And haven't you always wanted to see what it feels like to JUST barely not fit into something?

The bottom just goes a little too high up your crack. The front just goes a little too much in your crotch. The top hangs just a little too low so you can't wear it to work. Ah, rompers. Join the fun!

7. It takes the pressure out of picking out an outfit

Don't have any shorts that match your shirt? Nothing looking how you want it to look? A romper is a one stop shop.

8. And less laundry!

Only wearing one article of clothing divides your laundry in half.

9. You'll be more motivated for leg day

Enough dedicating 4 days a week to arms. When your calves and quads are going to be out and about for the ladies (or gentlemen), you'll be hitting that squat rack and will never forget leg day again.

10. You'll get to learn how to accessorize

You don't need to accessorize with basketball shorts and an NFL tee shirt. When you're wearing a romper, a fashionable jacket or a statement necklace is necessary. Yay for new skills!

11. They honestly don't even look that ridiculous

I've seen what some men wear. These rompers are certainly not the most ungodly outfit you could wear. (I'm looking at you, camo on camo.)

12. You and your formal date can match more than ever

Trying to get the exact purple to match your homecoming or formal date is a thing of the past now. Just wear the same thing!

13. This can open up so many more opportunities for male clothing!

Male heels? Male bralettes? Male high waisted shorts? Men can finally understand all of the discomfort women go through to keep up with the trends!

14. And maybe even for new rompers?

We have to keep the rompers ~manly~. I'm thinking NFL or NBA rompers?

15. They're clothes. Who cares?

If you want to wear one, go for it. If you think it looks ridiculous, don't. But at the end of the day, its an article of clothing. Throw one on, never go near it, but let people do what they want.

20 Fashion Trends From The Early 2000s That Make Us Physically Sick To Think About Today

I might be willing to sign a petition to get Juicy tracksuits back but that's it.

The early 2000s were a time in fashion that most of us, who lived through it, try to forget about. It was full of cowl neck shirts, low-rise jeans, and other trends that send chills down my spine. Britney Spears was in her prime, pre-head shaving of course, and girls got their fashion inspo from Lizzie McGuire and Teen Vogue magazines.

1. Shiny everything.

Shiny shirts, shiny pants, or even worse... shiny cargo pants.

2. Gaucho Pants.

3. Neckties as belts.

Literally who thought this was okay. Noooooooo.

4. Timberland boots with heels.

They're not even practical. I don't understand.

5. Camo.

6. Avril Lavigne everything.

I'm not gonna sit here and act like I didn't sing "Sk8er Boi" every day of my life.

7. Cowl neck shirts.

8. Cowgirl shirts.

9. Vertical stripe flare pants. Bonus if they were corduroy.

10. Layering tank tops.

11. Beaded wire headbands, bracelets, and chokers.

12. Cuffed jeans with heels.

13. Zebra Highlights.

14. Yoga Pants.

15. Juicy Couture tracksuits.

16. Asymmetrical jersey skirts. Aka my living worst nightmare.

17. Low-rise jeans.

Often times embroidered. Double points if they're Miss Me or True Religion.

18. Flowy, hippie dresses over jeans.

19. Platform shoes.

20. Shrugs.

Omg I'm puking. I'm pretty sure I haven't used the word "shrug" to describe an article of clothing since 2006.

5 Instagrammable Lip Products For Under $8

Show off your new look for less!

Ever heard the saying “champagne taste on a wine cooler budget”? That pretty much explains my complicated relationship with makeup. I don’t wear makeup that often, so I think it’s financially irresponsible to spend a ton of money on it. A staple in my makeup routine is a good lip. High school and the beginning of college was all about a nice gloss finish, but that has changed. Regardless of the occasion I can be found with a nice matte lip, either nude or bold. There really isn’t a middle ground when it comes to my lips.

I always get compliments on my lip colors and love the responses I get when I tell people it’s a drugstore brand. I’ve tried several brands, but only a few have made the cut for repurchasing.

Choosing the perfect matte lip is a science. There are specific qualities that it must possess to become one of my favorites. Some of the deciding factors include:

Applicator: What is provided for application?

Application and Consistency: How many coats are required for full coverage?

Dry Time: What is the dry time?

Chapped Effect: Does my lips feel like the sahara desert after application?

Longevity: How long does it last from the initial application time?

Food: What does it look like after a meal?

Here are some budget-friendly matte lip options.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream $6.49

Applicator: Doe Foot (the same applicator you get with a lip gloss).

Application and Consistency: It’s creamy and takes 1-2 coats for desired results

Dry Time: Less than a minute, since it’s a cream consistency.

Chapped Effect: For a matte product my lips feel smooth and moisturized.

Longevity: It typically last for about 5 hours before touch up are needed.

Food: This product works well with most food and drinks. However, after eating anything greasy like pizza or wings there is a drastic need to reapply.

Maybelline Color Sensational $5.49

Applicator: Lipstick

Application and Consistency: Super-creamy formula. I think it being super creamy requires more coats to get my perfect lip.

Dry Time: Downside of this product is that it doesn’t dry like tradition matte products.

Chapped Effect: I would compare this product to a lip gloss. That’s great because it doesn’t dry out my lips.

Longevity: This isn’t an all day lip product. I would suggest using this solely for social media. Don’t judge me, everyone has those days when they want to get cute for selfies or snapchat.

Food: Be prepared to reapply after eating.

NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick $6.99

Applicator: Lipstick

Application and Consistency: Dry yet creamy. The thickness of the product makes it a little difficult when applying, but if done right it only takes one coat.

Dry Time: Product doesn’t require a dry time, it’s matte from the first coat.

Chapped Effect: It’s a little creamy, but after a while I feel like I should apply chapstick.

Longevity: It can last for a couple of hours pending on how much you eat. I personally get about 4 hours before I need to completely reapply.

Food: After eating I can’t tell that I had on makeup in the first place, so bring the tube with you.

Let me go on record and say I am not a fan of liquid lipsticks. I am a creamy girl, but I have played around with two in the past.

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip $6.50

Applicator: Doe Foot

Application and Consistency: Liquid, but manageable. I try to be as minimal as possible and with liquid lipstick I feel the need to overcompensate to see results. It takes maybe 3-4 coats to get it right.

Dry Time: I strongly dislike that it takes a couple of minutes for it to dry. Even when I only do 2 coat it takes forever and a day.

Chapped Effect: I love how the product looks, but hate how dry it feels. I felt like my lips were dehydrated.

Longevity: Despite how it feels, this is a full day lipstick. I easily got 8 hours or more use out of it. I typically touch up when we are getting close to the 8th hour.

Food: Pretty sure I can enter a pie eating contest and it would still be there when I am done.

NYX Professional Make Lip Lingerie $6.99

Applicator: It’s a flat applicator and I hate it so much. The only benefit of it is that you can perfectly outline your lips before fully applying.

Application and Consistency: It’s creamy and takes 1-2 coats for desired results.

Dry Time: It takes 1-2 minutes for it to dry. When I’m in a rush I stand in front of a fan, don’t judge my life choices.

Chapped Effect: After a couple of hours I feel the need to apply chapstick, but it isn’t as bad as ColourPop in my opinion.

Longevity: Pending on the number of coats applied this can be an all day lipstick. With a slight touch up after lunch.

Food: Similar to the NYX Matte Lip Cream, the greaser the food the more likely you will need to apply.

Why spend hundreds of dollars when you can achieve the same results for half the cost.
