Playsuit. Jumpsuit. Romper. Whatever you want to call it, in my opinion it’s a piece to have fun in. Mix in the color of the moment – bright red – and you have a recipe for a good time. At least that was my theory, when I took this puppy for a joy ride.
This Lou Romper is the short version of the beloved Lou Jumpsuit. (Seen here and here on S+S.) I was a little unsure of this cropped cousin of the jumpsuit but, when I saw it in red, the concept came alive for me. Bold, playful, and sassy, it’s the antidote to all of summer’s sometimes overly simple, single-layer dressing.
The romper embodies all of my favorite qualities from the jumpsuit: it fits loose and away from the body, and it’s made from a breezy, linen-blend fabric.
I’ll let you make the decision, do girls in rompers really have more fun? Perhaps. Or maybe fun is just easier to come by because you don’t have to spend a nanosecond worrying about what you’re going to wear.
I think the Lou Romper would look gorgeous with a sand or rose colored bandana, or dressed up with a pair of nude clogs. But wearing it with my tan Pons is about the easiest and light-hearted outfit possible. I love making a statement without having to try very hard.
I’d love to hear your thoughts – I know many of you love jumpsuits, but would you do a romper? If so, how would you style it?
