Whether running errands, attending class or working a summer internship, a smart Fashionista’s go-to ensemble consists of quick and easy pieces that promise to keep you cool and comfortable on a hot summer day. While a sundress is the classic summer pick, lightweight rompers and jumpsuits are perfect for spicing up your wardrobe this season.

How To: Rompers and jumpers are made in several different styles and are flattering on many shapes if worn properly. This summer we have seen Fashionistas rocking bright colored rompers in light, carefree materials.
