A onesie for an adult, that sounds like it’ll be a hit; apparently it was. Although they existed at the beginning of the 20th Century, they were made popular in the 1960s and 70s with its younger sibling, the jumper being a staple style of the era. Rompers have reemerged in the 21st century as a popular trend that translates well as a casual café-latte-type-of-day out or as a sassy night-out-on-the-town ensemble.
Also known as a playsuit, this piece of clothing offers unbeatable versatility, it’s hard to not see the appeal in purchasing one or two or three for your closet. The best thing about having a romper is embellishing it. These simple, understated pieces can be paired with a variety of accessories to create outfits perfect for any season and any occasion.
Necklaces, bracelets, headbands, belts, watches and footwear can all add flavor to your attire. The type of shoe you wear is a decisive move in making your romper a day or night affair. Flat sandals and wedges work well for day rompers while gladiator sandals and the classic sexy pump can liven up that party outfit for the weekend.
Designers are jazzing up the many ways in which a romper can be reimagined and the type of energy these new concepts conjure up. Ruffles and frills inspire girlish charm for a daytime outing while a tight silhouette and strategic attention to cleavage will arouse sensuality. In between is the play of fabric, pattern and fit to create multifaceted looks that will beckon to every woman’s inner spirit.
