How to Wear a Romper

15 Jul


Not All Rompers are Created Equal

Rompers have been around for a couple of seasons, but have really taken off this summer. A hit on the celebrity circuit, scene stealers like Blake Lively and Bachelorette contestant, Jillian Harris, have been spotted in revealing rompers exposing lots of leg and self-confidence.

Pick a Romper that Works for Your Body Type

The secret to wearing a one-piece romper is picking one that works for your body type. You can pull off a romper if you choose a style that fits your body well, and drapes your curves in the right places. Selecting the appropriate fabric also makes a difference. Clingy fabrics, like silk, show curves more than heavier fabrics like denim or cotton. Sticking with a solid color presents a longer, leaner look. 

Add Accessories to Make it Your Own

To stamp on your own style, add subtle accessories to your romper if it lacks intricate detailing. Break up the romper with a belt or add a long chain necklace for an elegant look. Shoes can dramatically change the look of a romper. Wear pumps for a more sophisticated look or flat sandals with a fleece romper.

Summer-tested Rompers

Knit romper–If you don’t want to bare it all, a knit romper with a wide neck t-shirt top from Urban Outfitters is an arms-friendly choice.

Beach romper–Wear this terry-cloth romper with a drawstring waist by Juicy Couture on an afternoon trip to the beach. Match the romper with flat sandals and a straw bag.

Still not convinced that you can wear a romper? Make a statement in a lightweight woven romper with a removable elastic belt by Forever 21 that balances fashion with a flattering style. Dress it up for evening with metallic pumps and gold accessories, or just experience the comfort and versatility of wearing a onesie.
