When I first brought my mom into Hollister Co. and asked for a romper she looked at me like I had punched her in the stomach. Over the blaring music she told me that her mom used to dress her in the most uncomfortable rompers as a child and she was haunted to this day. Nevertheless, I tried one on and the flattering one-piece was mine. I have loved rompers ever since, but understand my mom’s fear and I’m occasionally haunted by my avoidance of using the bathroom when wearing one.
While people often classify rompers with summertime style, there is a new uproar of rompers and jumpsuits just for the chilly seasons. I’m seeing long sleeve rompers and pant jumpsuits quite often and, needless to say, I love it. The ability to just throw on a one-piece without having to worry about the matching nonsense is just, well, easier.
I spotted this Fashionista sporting a fabulous fall-inspired romper. The muted-palette print and flattering cut made this the perfect outfit on a warm Sunday. Her accessories are minimal as the main focus of the look is the trendy romper and Aztec-inspired print. You will usually find that rompers come in a variety of colors and prints. I recommend going with a print because you don’t have the option to play with textures and colors like you would with a separate top and a bottom.
This Fashionista adds a pop of red to the look with her clutch, bringing some uniqueness into the look as a whole. Her hands are decorated with rings and she wears a simple necklace so all eyes are focused on the romper. To achieve a more formal kind of look, bulky bracelets or a large necklace would be a great statement item with a romper.
While this Fashionista tones down her ensemble with a pair of flip flops, a pair of combat boots with peeping socks would be fabulous for the chillier weather. Think it’s too cold for your romper? Add some tights and you’ll be warm and chic!
