Maxi dresses are a summer staple but everyone should have at least a few rompers and jumpsuits in their closets. They’re as easy as maxi dresses, except they usually don’t have five extra yards of fabric that you sweep the sidewalk with. Rompers and jumpsuits are also incredibly versatile. They can work for the beach to casual weekends looks to formal events like weddings. No wonder Taylor Swift loves them almost as much as her beloved crop tops.
Here are jumpsuits and rompers that work from for different occasions:
1. Starflower Romper ($118, Antropologie)
Pack this navy romper for your next summer festival. When it gets cooler, you can pair it with tights and boots for an easy transeasonal look.
2. Silk Floral Print Culotte Jumpsuit ($125, Topshop)
Tick off two huge summer trends with this culotte jumpsuit. The floral print jumpsuit is great for day but you can also dress it up with heels and statement accessories.
3. Mixed Business Linen Overalls ($99.99, Urban Outfitters)
Overalls are just as popular this year as they were last summer. If you already own a classic blue pair, try something a bit different like these black linen ones.
