Tis the season to wear a short, one-piece ensemble that has a tank or short sleeves attached and a built-in belt. The trend is back — and made for people above preschool age! I love the ruffled and romantic twist on something that's cute, fun and fearless. This is such a cute trend for heading into spring.
But as lovely as Rachel Bilson looks, we all know this particular style isn't for everyone. There are rompers out there for everything from party to plus size — you just have to try them on and see what works.
Rompers are sweet but not forgiving. You basically need to be lean, have a flat stomach so you don't pouf out, and when you try it on, make sure you're not spliing out or stretching it out.
You can wear the romper with bare legs, or opaque tights and heels and dress it up or down. Beware of double belting as this already has its own belt. The top is bare, the waist is self-belted and you can show your legs for days. Shop around for your curves and your shape to find a silhouette that's ideal for you. Make sure you're draped in all the right spots. And have fun!
This Express version Rachel is wearing is 100% silk for $69.50. I love it!
