STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Re-purposed Romper

When winter rolls around, it’s important to re-purpose warm weather favorites. Treating a romper like a going-out top is a great way to expand your outfit options. This Fashionista sets a prime example by pairing her breezy romper with two more standout pieces. She creates a breezy Southwestern look that’s perfect for traveling, nights out or a day at brunch. Her versatile style proves that a few simple, classic pieces can go a long way.

The halter neckline on her gray romper is flirty but still comfortable, perfect for layering over a lace bandeau. What might make a great beach coverup is immediately transformed into a versatile top. Plus, its neutral color matches essentially every shade and texture in a wardrobe. By layering it with a denim jacket, the Fashionista adds some warmth while exuding a sweet all-American attitude. This distressed jacket is a perfect shade of blue, especially good for pairing with skirts, tights or leggings on chilly days.

Her boots and skirt add a Southwestern vibe to the look, making it reminiscent of exploring an artsy town like Santa Fe. Her gold ring and rose gold watch add extra bits of femininity to the look. They’re dainty but noticeable, making perfect investment pieces for a wide variety of outfits. Classic stud earrings add an extra sparkle behind her hair, and blue eyeliner ties things together with a quick pop of color.
