Jumpin' for Jumpsuits (and Rompers)
These days you don’t have time or energy to overthink your outfit. Easy, comfortable, looks good: if one item can tick all three boxes, it’s a must-buy, no?
If you saw our gorgeous model work a fringed jumpsuit in last month’s tricky trends feature you know we’ve started leaning into the one-piece movement. Sometimes we look the other way when trends come on too strong, but we can’t help being seduced by jumpsuits & rompers this season.
The best thing about this look is that you can really take it any direction you choose. A classic black crepe halter has echoes of a bronzed, 70s-era Michelle Pfeiffer and can easily stand in for an LBD on a dressy evening, while a terry shorts romper just calls out for a Sunday morning Starbucks run. As we transition from summer into fall (whaaaaat?) you can layer a fitted long-sleeve shirt under a sleeveless number, or try one of the sophisticated overall/menswear styles popping up for the office.
No matter how you style it, the one-piece is a fun change-up from your usual cutoffs or sundress in the dog days of summer.
Depending on your body type you may have try a few to find your “true love” — and we’ve rounded up a few favorites for all budgets and bodies here — but once you do, you’ll wonder why you waited so long!
