I’ve heard every excuse in the book: “I’m too short,” “I feel like a kid,” “But how will I pee?” Quit complaining, because no matter what you call the onesie, jumper, or romper, it can look kind of amazing on most any body type. We love clothing that shortens our early-morning closet shuffle, and this one-step item incorporates the convenience of a dress with the practicality of a pair of shorts. I’ve selected a few stand-out rompers that are fitting for daytime escapades, special evenings, even the office. But before you step into one, scan my styling tips, which are sure to help you avoid any one-piece blunders.
A Little Cinch Goes A Long Way—Clothing that’s cut to fit your entire body can lose definition at the waist. Add a belt, or select a romper that includes a cinched waistline to enhance your natural curves.
Keep It PG (Or At Least PG-13)—Be sure to select a romper that covers your derrière (we recommend jumping around in the fitting-room to make sure!). The weather may be warm, but that’s not really an excuse for a full moon.
Prints, Prints, Prints—There’s no shortage of bold prints, and we encourage you to try them all! But, be selective. If you’re very petite, a large, loud, floor-length print may swallow you up. So, opt for a print and silhouette that’s a little more understated.
Work Those Gams—A romper, whether shorts, cropped, or full-leg, can make your gams look like they go on for miles. Play them up and avoid sandals with thick ankle straps that can segment your shape in an unflattering way.
