Few things rock my world like a great-fitting romper.
Rompers bring the playful comfort of kids’ clothes to adult tailoring. A romper can be casual, cozy, cute, sophisticated, or sexy. The clever little romper is all that, and more.
Rompers can be tricky beasts, though. It takes plenty of trial and error to find the right fit for your body . For example, I often size up in rompers, because standard torso lengths are usually too short. I have a friend who was resigned to wistful envy of romper-wearing women, positive she couldn’t pull one off. But then she let me play personal stylist, and now she’s a convert.
If at first you don’t succeed in finding the perfect romper for you, don’t give up. It’s out there, I promise. Persevere. Because when you find it, you’ll discover a sassy, on-trend style that feels as fabulous as your favorite PJs.
Ready to meet a few of my favorite rompers?
I’d been dying to try a romper from Lynt since my friend Andrea launched her boutique brand. With a trip to Europe in hot and steamy summer weather teasing on my calendar, the time was right. And I have a confession to make: the moment I tried the first one on, I knew I had to have two.
I went for the Lynt A-Line Ready Romper in two designs: demure black polka dot and bold black leaf. Both patterns fit my go-to black-and-white color scheme. The fabric is wrinkle proof and sweat proof. The style looks best when worn braless, and the fit is on point. What’s not to love?
Need some Lynt in your life? You’re in luck. Andrea is offering 20% off a one-time purchase during the month of May to VRVE readers. Just visit allthingslynt.com and pop in code VRVEMAG at checkout.
But hey, a girl’s gotta have more than one style of romper. Here’s another one I’m packing for Europe, from Lulu’s, which definitely ticks the sexy box. It’s also a summer must, made of lightweight rayon with a halter neck and barely-there backless design. Slap on some adhesive cutlets and a pair of gladiator sandals and you’re good to go.
I’m also obsessed with this recent purchase from Evereve. Technically, this one’s a jumpsuit. But that’s just another word for long-legged romper—a sophisticated sister style, of sorts. It’s crazy cozy, and it works equally well with flip-flops or high heels. Plus, Michael Stars is the designer, which means it will flatter practically anyone.
If you’d rather keep it short and sassy, Z Supply offers this sweet piece. It’s a great pick as a bikini topper, or for happy hour with your BFFs. And while you’re shopping Z Supply, stock up on all sorts of basics (that are anything but). Which reminds me: someday soon we’ll have a tank top talk. Because I’d be lost without my stockpile of perfectly-styled Z Supply tanks.
