Jumpsuits are like a girl’s best friend, you can always count on them in any situation. Basic jumpsuits are a staple piece in your wardrobe that you can easily grab when you’re rushing out the door, or need a complete outfit with minimal effort. These one-pieces can easily be dressed up or styled down with the right shoes and accessories.
Casual rompers make a great base to your look because they can be low-key for weekends but also great to wear for more formal events. Here are simple style tips that will guide you on how to take your simple romper to the next level with things that you already own in your closet.
Romper Style Dress Tips
Embrace the Power of Footwear
Let’s be real here, shoes can make or break an outfit so let’s make sure we pick the right pair that won’t overpower your look but rather complement it. Wearing strappy sandals with any romper will automatically make the look casual and cool, perfect for beach days, vacation, or running errands. Swapping the simple sandals with a colorful heel or wedges can instantly make the jumpsuit dressy more appropriate for a date night or special occasion. Either way, when in doubt, stick with black heels or nude color wedges. They will match with any style and any print.
Add a Few Pieces of Sparkling Jewelry
The simplest way to dress up women’s playsuits are with some bling. Whether silver or gold is more your color, adding little hoops or a bangle bracelet will elevate your romper look and make it more stylish. If you want to really dress up your formal jumpsuit that is a plain color, add a statement necklace or dangly earrings that are beaded if you don’t want to wear metal jewelry. Otherwise, be careful to not overdo it with accessories if your one-piece jumpsuit has a busy print. A delicate pair of studs will go along way adding just the right amount of sparkle to your outfit.
Drape a Sweater or Blazer
When spring and summer arrives, you’ll find that most outfits are short sleeve rompers or even sleeveless jumpsuits. If you’re not going to be at the beach all day, you may want to bring a thin duster jacket or sweater to drape over your shoulders for when you are inside where it can be a little chilly. Blazers are a great option to make your romper outfit more professional, cardigans to keep it conservative, or casual and cool with a denim jacket.
Utilize Strategic Accessories
Don’t limit yourself to just accessorizing with just jewelry and shoes. Play around with hats, belts, hair accessories — they can also transform your trendy jumpsuit into a whole new outfit. The first step in deciding which kind of accessory to add to your playsuit is to think about the event or occasion you’re going to. If it’s just a casual day going to the farmer’s market or coffee date, try adding a waist belt to accentuate your waist. A beach day is a great opportunity to wear a floppy straw hat or baseball cap with some oversized sunnies. For a date night, you could add a couple sparkly hair pins to your hair for an extra wow-factor. There are also fun hair scarves, headbands or flower crowns to consider, too.
Wear Dark Tights Underneath
This is a nifty trick for transitional seasons when it’s starting to get cooler or moving into summer. Layering a pair of sheer nylons or opaque leggings under your romper outfit is a trendy and functional way to style your outfit for the appropriate weather. There are so many fun patterns and prints that legging and nylons are available in, even ones with glitter, to really add to your outfit.
