How To: Wear A Romper

Forget little sundresses and flowy miniskirts--this summer, it's all about the romper! It's a perfect playful addition to anyone's warm-weather wardrobe. Rompers look similar to dresses, but are better for casual occasions. They can be hard to pull off, but typically work very well on petites and taller women as well. However, almost anyone can find the perfect romper to suit their style and figure.

To choose the best romper for you, think about where you'd like to wear it. If you typically wear very casual pieces, pick out a simple cotton romper in a bright, solid color (like Hollister's Malibu romper, pink, $17.94). You can then amp it up by adding a funky patterned scarf and a pair of wedges. If you like to make a statement, try a pattern, like animal print or stripes (Charlotte Russe One Shoulder Leopard Romper, $24.99). Keep this look from going overboard by sticking with basic accessories. If you prefer a girly or elegant style, find a floral romper or one that has ruffle detailing (Forever 21 Floral Flounce Romper, $19.80). Find a pair of polished neutral wedges and don't forget a big statement bag.

My style is very girly, so when I shopped for a romper, I looked for a floral one. I found a cute red one at Hollister (no longer available), with large flowers, a pleated button placket, pockets and tie-waist detailing. It's a simple style, but the bold color and pattern make it stand out and work for casual outdoor events as well as going out for lunch or dinner. In fact, I wore mine on a recent vacation and it worked perfectly for window shopping and enjoying dinner outside.

Remember: the most important tip for rocking a romper is to have fun and be confident. If you feel hot, you'll look hot!
