The Fashion Chronicles: Romper
Styling your Romper.
by Shop By Amy
When you need to put together an outfit in a hurry, a romper is an easy-to-wear one-piece option that makes both a chic and comfortable choice. The romper is a great alternative when you want something different from a mini dress but just as easy. These are all-in-one, one-pieces that combine a shirt or blouse on top with a pair of shorts on the bottom.
As you browse the rompers on offer at SHOP BY AMY, you will quickly see that they come in a wide range of styles, making it easy to find a romper to suit the occasion and your personal style.
The Dotted Mesh Ruffled Romper is a perfect long sleeve ruffle white romper for a dressy occasion like a garden party. It is made of pom-pom polka dot fabric and features a sheer dotted mesh panel along the neckline. At the back is a keyhole detail with button closure and at the waist self-tie straps.
The Eileen Leaf Print Romper is a white romper with a green leaf print. A cute daytime outfit inspired by The Sound of Music curtain rompers. It features a button-down front bodice and collared neckline, with relaxed short sleeves and straight cut bottoms. The drawstring waistband has a contrast chevron print.
The Girl Like Me Romper may be a long-sleeved white romper, but it takes cues from vintage mini dresses. It features a v-neckline, elasticated cuffs, a set-in waist, and lace hems. The fabric is a flirty floral pattern that works equally well dressed up or dressed down, depending on the accessories.
The Botanical Print Off Shoulder Romper is a chic white romper featuring a sweetheart neckline that tops a fitted bodice with flouncy sleeves. The flaring ruffles of the peplum waist sit atop structured shorts. This structured romper is a smart summer floral option with its leafy green and pink print.
From casual afternoon and vacation outfits to dressy options for a night out or a special occasion, rompers are available in a variety of materials and styles. So how do you find the romper for you?
- What sort of style are you looking for in your outfit? Consider elasticated and drawstring waists with jersey and other lightweight materials for casual outfits. Consider tailored and more structured details, like belted waists, darts, or cuffs for more formal outfits. Materials like silk and satin offer a more flowy and clingy option.
- What silhouette(s) and shapes suit your body type? If you’re concerned about losing your figure in the fabric of a romper, to provide more structure to your outfit and frame your figure consider details like a smocked waistline or a belt. If you feel your shoulders are narrow, choosing an off-the-shoulder romper adds weight visually to your upper half, creating an hourglass effect. As an added bonus, a top that wraps around the shoulders can also show off your décolletage.
