STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Romper Rampage

June 8th, 2016 at 2:00am

We all love to wear fun and flirty dresses during the summer. Yet, they aren’t always the most convenient. From having the hold down the dress when walking to trying to find a comfortable, yet appropriate way to sit, sometimes it’s more work than it’s worth.

So what’s a great way to enjoy the sundress look without the hassle? A romper. The trend goes from being in to out of style, but this year it’s a must for summer.

For Fashionistas like this, her perfect romper came from a local boutique in Columbia, Missouri. It’s the details in the garment that drew her to it. The dark background with a geometric pattern makes it wearable in summer and even into fall. The plunging neckline interrupted by fabric to make a triangle continues with the geometric feel. It also makes the romper versatile for day or night activities.

Her favorite part of the romper is the black lace that trims the bottom. She loves the added detail because it makes it a little more formal. She loves wearing the romper with sandals to make it more casual or with wedges for that dressy look.

Yet, it can be hard to find rompers that fit every body type and that don’t give off a “tween” look. So take a look at the following stores to avoid that problem. Forever 21 has a large selection including festival-inspired styles, Urban Outfitters has taken the trend dressy with spaghetti straps and criss-cross backs and find lace looks this Fashionista’s from stores like Target.
