Oh Rompers… let me count the ways in which I adore you…
After seeing how versatile a two piece set can be, it's time to turn our attention over to the one piece wonder know as the romper. It's the piece that's making such a big comeback, online stores have had to create a new "tab" (Rompers and Jumpsuits). The effortless pieces come in all different styles, cuts, and fabrics, giving you an endless list of choices. Feeling Boho princess one day and want something sleek and sexy the next? Rompers. You need a new cover up that can go from the beach to the local bar for happy hour? Rompers. You slept in on a sunday and need to look chic for brunch ASAP? Romper.

Rompers have been slowly coming back since February after Jumpsuits took over the holiday party scene, and their overwhelming presence at Coachella and other festivals has solidified their spot on the Summer trend map.
The first perk to a romper in my mind is they're loose fitting. The shorts are loosely hanging around your thighs instead of digging into them like denim diapers (which makes your legs look thicker as it squeezes into them). Most well made rompers also have the shorts cut up, like the one above (Indian Summer romper by Spell and the Gypsy collective). This cut creates a flattering effect on your thighs and makes your legs appear smaller!
The second perk of rompers? They're OH SO sexy. Backless cut? Check. Side boob? Check check. The best part about them being so sexy is that they're also absurdly comfortable. Besides maybe needing some boob tape (get it at target!) rompers are worry free. You won't feel the need to be tugging at your shorts or pulling up your top (if you are you should get your romper altered or buy one size up and get it altered to your body).
Wearing a comfortable piece automatically makes you appear even sexier because you'll come off as a confident individual.
Rompers are also the perfect vacation item. If you want to be relaxed and comfortable yet still appear fashion savy on your summer vacations this year, just pack a romper (or three…). Rompers easily work as a bikini cover up that can get you from the sand to dancing at the local cantina in no time.
All three of these rompers are from Victoria's secret and are on sale! Click on the image to shop the romper in the picture or click here to see the entire VS romper selection.
My favorite Romper right now is by Joypeace from Urban Outfitters (click on the image above to shop it). It's currently on sale for $29! This romper is perfect on its own or with a fun bralette peeking through. In the above picture i'm wearing the Lace Bralette from Victoria's secret Pink. Get yours here.
For a totally different look I paired it with… the top from my two piece set!!! Personally I'm going to declare rompers the winner for this summer, but the ultimate winner is wearing them both together ;)
What a happy ending to this battle of the trends…
