Rompers | Spring Summer 2010

Recently, a friend was telling me about her “I can’t find a jumper that fits my shape” woes. Rompers are one of those peculiar clothing choices. A flattering fit depends on your shape, the cut, and the fabric choice.

Rompers tend to be an issue for those who have a disproportionate shape. Stacy London & Clinton Kelly – from “What Not to Wear” – would advocate their favorite solution: TAILORING. While tailoring is an option, sometimes, you don’t want to go through the hassle of tailoring the non-investment pieces. Instead, you could work with your body and the available romper options that look best.

If you’re seeking coverage for the chest or arms – a romper with a higher neckline and some type of sleeve is great. If you have wider hips, look for a romper with a roomier bottom that will accommodate your curves. If you want to minimize your tummy, look for contrast, a thicker belt, or a romper that focuses on the narrowest part of your waist.

Whether you want strapless, long-sleeves, pockets or prints, here are my picks for chic rompers for the summer!
Flutter Sleeve Romper, $39.75 (The Limited); Staring at Stars Cutout Romper, $58 (Urban Outfitters); Linen Button Front Romper, $59 (Arden B); Eighty Six Romper, $68 (Revolve Clothing); Karina Grimaldi Diana Romper, $240 (shopbop)

Aztec Print Tube Romper, $38 (Torrid); Mixed Pattern Romper, $19.90 (Forever 21); Black Halo Karolina Romper, $306 (Pink Mascara); Free People Springtime Floral Romper, $88 (Tobi); DKNY Polka Dotted Romper, $295 (Bloomingdales)
