Jumpsuit, romper, playsuit — they're all names for the one-piece shorts-and-top combos that are popping up everywhere this spring. They started out as glorified bathing suit cover-ups, made of jersey and hardly appropriate for wearing to social outing; But now they're being made in all sorts of styles and materials, making them not only comfy and easy-to-wear, but also spring event-appropriate and chic. Take a look at 5 classy rompers for your spring events.
Spring has sprung, and that means white is the ticket to a crisp look for an outdoor party or a happy hour with friends. Pair this with a long-line blazer for a more evening-appropriate look. Feel free to treat this jumper as a blank canvas for accessorizing, or just throw on a pair of gladiator flats for a cute day look.
Cooperative Nautical Romper - From Urban Outfitters
Not everyone is into their one-piece looking like a one-piece. In that case, this all-in-one nautical ensemble from Cooperative (hands-down my favorite brand at Urban Outfitters) could be just right. Flattering diagonal lines draw attention to the bust line while diminishing the waist — pretty brilliant tailoring if you ask me. This piece would look amazing with a detachable collar necklace for extra flair.
A cropped ankle and trouser pockets are the subtle details that take this tailored jumpsuit from a spring knock-around to a high-fashion piece. Think: it's a top and pants in one, and far-and-away the best thing anyone's going to wear to that reception you've got coming up. This standalone piece does fine with just some gold jewelry, but if you're feeling loud, a black blazer wouldn't hurt the look.
Pins and Needles Sateen Jumpsuit - From Urban Outfitters
A black sateen jumpsuit is a great way to ease into the trend, if you're uncomfortable with the idea of an all-in-one garment like this. The black sateen is undeniably sophisticated, and is again, a great backdrop for any way you choose to accessorize. The model's shoes in this pic would be just about my last choice to complement the outfit, but a pair of super-bright heels would be a great way to dress it up.
If it's a concert, outdoor festival or shopping with friends, a romper like this is the perfect blend of this year's trends and a breezy spring silhouette. You'll look so put-together without even trying.
If you're looking for a twist on the usual flowery sun dress, maybe a chic and easy-to-wear jumpsuit or romper is right up your alley this spring. It doesn't hurt to try it on, and you might be pleasantly surprised!
