TREND: Rompers Done Right

It used to be that rompers were associated with toddlers and playpens. Thank goodness that isn't true anymore! Now rompers are a sexy summer item that show off your legs and add a sense of fun to your outfit. These two Fashionista friends were spotted having a coffee break and stroll on the always chic Newbury Street area. I find it interesting, that although they both wear rompers, they each do it a little differently.

The Fashionista on the left wears a bright teal romper with a straw fedora hat, brown sunglasses, a leather Louis Vuitton bag, and neutral sandals. This outfit works because she adds neutral grown up accessories to make it age appropriate, and the ruffle on the romper is a nice detail. The Fashionista on the right wears an anything-but-basic black romper in a shorter length paired with black Wayfarer shades, grey thong sandals, a black textured leather bag, and a rectangular watch for a classic touch.

In conclusion, the key to making rompers more flattering and age appropriate:

1. Pair with stylish accessories such as sunglasses, hats, oversized bags, and summer scarves.

2. Belt the waist or wear one with a smocked elastic waist to define your curves.

3. Don't be afraid to experiment with color! 🙂 There are tons of options available, from bold florals, to madras plaid, magenta, and tribal print Marc Jacobs.
