Rompers: The Easy Outfit Solution For Summer

  • 1 of 17

    Short rompers tend to make an appearance every spring and summer--with very good reason. These abbreviated one-pieces require very little coordination, yet they can make a high-impact style statement. Inspired by the recent runway versions we’ve seen, such as Chloe’s romantic frilled onesie, as well as celebs wearing the trend, like Joan Smalls’ smartly tailored Chanel look, we gathered a handful of our favorites for you to try. (A word to the wise: if you’re worried about looking too juvenile, opt for a structured version instead of a more romantic or flowy silhouette; it's a bit more polished.) Click through our slideshow to see who’s wearing rompers and shop our picks too.

    At Chanel’s Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner in New York last month, Smalls wore a one-piece from the label’s Pre-Spring 13 collection. The romper’s alluring, abbreviated hemline offers the perfect counterpoint to its naturally playful vibe.
