Rock the Rompers
One of this summer’s must-haves’ is the romper. Designers like Yves Saint Laurent, Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs and others have featured them in their Spring/Summer 2011 collections. Their lightweight fabrics and playful prints are perfect for the warmer months. With the right accessories, rompers can be taken from day to night. Here are some tips on how to wear this summer essential:
Get the right fit. Just like finding the right pair of jeans, finding the right romper takes time. You haveto try it on. If you have a small bust (lucky you!), you get to wear strapless and spaghetti strapped rompers. If you’re busty (lucky you too!), find something with a wide strap so you can wear your favorite bra underneath.
Emphasize what you’ve got. Rompers usually have bands around the waist to emphasize your assets and keep you from looking like an adult in pajamas. If the romper is without a band, you must belt it! A belt at the waist will give you an hourglass shape and visually elongate your legs. If you’re pear-shaped, try a belt at your waist and see how you like the look. Plus-sized girls, don’t be afraid to try this trend! There’s something out there for everybody.
P.S. I styled this and all the looks in the article.
