Summer Trend Alert: Rockin' Rompers

By Qianna Smith

Day Style: Relaxed Romper

The last time you rocked a romper may have been in grade school, but you'll be glad to know the youthful one-piece fashion statement has gotten a womanly update. Meet the new and improved romper--a one-piece short and top comb that's been all the rage for the past two summer seasons. From Beyoncé to Thandie Newton, Hollywood stylistas can't get enough of this trend and its versatility. Dress it up or down, throw on a few accessories and you're set! If you want to look effortlessly chic this look is the way to go this season. To show you why the romper is the must-have item to own this summer we have put together two day and night looks for under $100. Frugal and fab--it doesn't get any better than this!

Evening Style: Dress Your Romper Up


Fit & Fab: The right romper fit should not be skin tight. We suggest buying one-size up from the size you would normally wear. The short part of the romper looks best when it hangs loose around the thigh area. If you're a woman with hips, avoid rompers with short pockets which have a tendency to make you look wider. Don't choose a romper that falls too short unless your legs are tight and toned (such as the lovely ladies above). The most appropriate romper fit should fall in the half way point between your hip and knee. To accentuate your shape add a belt to the look to help cinch your waist.

Walk This Way: Wear sandals during the day for a comfy and relaxed romp around the town. At night, dress this look up with a sky-high pair of pumps or booties to elongate your legs.

Accessory To The Crime: Be as bad and bold as you want to be with your accessories when wearing your romper. Bib necklaces, piled up bangles, oversized earrings, glam cocktail rings and belts all will work in your favor to create a one-of-kind style statement.
