5 Ways to Style a Romper

This summer, we’re totally romper-obsessed. It’s playful and cool yet elevated and elegant. Though you might think of the denim overalls of your childhood and terry jumpsuits of your teenage years, the romper has been updated—and the styling potential is seemingly endless. What’s more is that it is a throw-on-and-go look that will always pull you together.

Just because a romper is a one-and-done doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun to style it to the max. Whether you’re seeking a more head-turning style or you’re layering like a pro, jumpsuits and rompers work for any occasion morning, noon, and night. This summer, we’re loving everything from covered and casual utility-style jumpsuits as well as printed, luxe, and silk jumpsuits that work for more elegant affairs. We’re seeking silhouettes that can work on their own as well as thrown over a classic white T-shirt, we’re trying layering with everything from a ribbed tank top to a silk button-down blouse, and for those who like to show a little skin: It’s time to consider the unbuttoned utility look with a gorgeous silk bralette underneath.

When it comes to your footwear and accessories, the sky’s the limit. Finish off your look with ballet flats for a weekend stroll and statement-making stilettos for a night out. Yes, that very same romper or jumpsuit will work for all. Need a little inspiration? Check out these romper-clad street style stars below and shop their looks right here.

Go classic and preppy by pairing your utility jumpsuit with loafers. Add a little whimsical pop with colorful loafers to make more of a statement.

Even with a more covered jumpsuit, there’s still room to show a little skin. Go for a utility or pajama-dressing style, but keep the top open to reveal a silk or lace bralette underneath.

Even with a jumpsuit that you could wear on its own, try adding a little dimension with a T-shirt underneath. For a more dressed-up look, consider adding some chunky-heeled sandals.

For a more elegant take on the layered look, consider a printed silk jumpsuit that’s paired with a more classic and slim white top underneath. Pair it with elevated accessories, like pointed-toe flats, statement earrings, and sunglasses.

Take it easy this summer with a one-and-done look you truly don’t have to add anything to. Go all out with a seasonally inspired print and amp up your footwear by opting for an espadrille/sneaker hybrid.
