Who says you have to be a child to wear a romper? In fact-the romper has evolved into a sophisticated and chic trend for women that is youthful and grown-up all at the same time.
The trends in rompers for this Summer 2011 season are the color block and printed varieties-particularly in silks or flowy fabrics. A silk romper is the best investment because it can be dressed up…whereas those made of cotton or jersey should be reserved for more casual affairs.
Colorblock was seen months ago all over the designer runway shows and now that it’s hit the stores we are loving it! Colorblocking can trick the eye into thinking the outfit is two coordinating pieces, when in fact they are sewn together. To spice up a colorblock romper, simply add a fun gold patent leather belt and heads will be sure to turn your way.
