There’s always that awkward time leading into fall. The days begin to get shorter, the leaves change color and summer dresses and skirts just don’t cut it anymore. But it’s still too early to take out the jackets, jeans and boots. So, what’s still fashionable yet comfortable in this in-between weather? The standard romper with a twist.
This week’s featured Fashionista rocks a romper with pants instead of shorts. The loose pants are more comfy and cool than jeans but still provide warmth for the changing seasons. Also, her color palette is perfect for fall. The black flats and leather satchel complement the deep red romper perfectly, and the unexpected white skulls on the flats add some edge to her overall look. This darker shade of red is popping up everywhere, making appearances all over runways including Ralph Lauren’s, Marchesa’s and Oscar de la Renta’s New York Fashion Week fall 2013 shows.
To get this Fashionista’s ready-for-fall outfit, look for rompers with pants or even with sleeves. Either one will provide some fashionable warmth. Look for a drawstring waist like this once since it flatters all figures. Deep reds, purples, greens and browns are great for fall. Also, consider a romper with an eye-catching print, or if you’re set on wearing a solid romper like this Fashionista, add some edge with unique flats or a statement necklace. As it gets even cooler, just throw on a black cardigan or blazer and you’re set.
So, instead of reaching for the standard jeans and long sleeve top when fall’s chilly breeze moves in, try a warm take on the romper!
