Why are rompers so great? Because they have all the benefits of flirty little dressed, with the convenience of shorts. That means you can do cartwheels, ride your bike, or go skydiving without any embarrassing panty flashes. Here are five rompers $25 and under to take you through summer. ♥ Bow-nus Points Romper, Lulu*s ($24, sale, pictured). If your steez is more retro or vintage, and your style icon is more Rita Hayworth than Lady Gaga, try this black-and-white polka-dot romper with a red bow pattern.
♥ Floral Ruffle Romper, Delia*s ($22.50). Feeling romantic? This romper with an embroidered bodice and side pockets is utterly lovely with a floral print of big, pink roses.
♥ Oxidized Tribal Print Romper, Forever 21 ($19.80). This satin number in a trendy tribal print has an elastic waist, spaghetti straps and an exposed front zipper. Perfect for strutting down the boardwalk.
♥ Ruffle Trim Romper, Wet Seal ($22.80). If you like bright, bold colors, this hot pink and orange piece is your fashion destiny. A scooped, ruffle-trimmed neckline adds a girly touch.
