Top 6 Weekend Rompers

Like if this guide is helpful
Like the seasons, fashion has its own cycles. For those who remember the '70s, the return of the romper is a welcome surprise. Like many fashion items that reclaim the spotlight, the romper has seen an extensive update. Thankfully, the velour fabric is gone, and elasticised ankle bands banished. In their place, designers use clever tailoring, glamourous fabrics, and modern technology to make creative, fashionable, and fun clothing. The romper is a comfortable and easy-to-wear clothing item that wearers can easily dress up or down.
1 10 Crosby Derek Lam Ikat Print Jumpsuit

Derek Lam, an American designer from San Francisco, has become a favourite of British fashionistas. His wearable and glamourous collections are full of unique fashion items. Recently, Derek Lam added jumpsuits to this range of clothing. The Ikat print romper, made from a lightweight silk blend, is perfect for humid summer evenings. In true designer fashion, the Ikat romper has many special treatments. Closed by a series of front buttons, a clever placket with pin tuck detail hides them from view. The uniquely tailored double drawstring waist makes material bunching virtually impossible. Furthermore, the two slash pockets make the jumpsuit functional as well as funky.


2 ASOS Jumpsuit with Halter

The ASOS halter jumpsuit stands out from the crowd. Designed to look like two separate pieces, the outfit is unique among jumpsuits. The trouser portion features classic black and comes with two well-styled side pockets and a back zip fastener. The man-styled trousers come with belt loops, enabling the wearer to add personal styling. The halter upper is available in a range of colours, including burgundy, white, and dusty rose. The halter features an open back with a central button fastener, and the bodice has a teardrop opening below the neckline. Made from easy-care poly fabric, the jumpsuit is machine and hand washable.


3 ASOS Heart Print Playsuit

Cute and current, this ASOS Heart Print Playsuit combines classic design and playfulness. The jumpsuit design perfectly captures the spirit of the 1950s, with a twist. The modest scoop neck, capped-sleeves, high waistband, and scarf-like belt offer further vintage elements. The traditional colour choice (white heart print set against a background of navy blue) creates further appeal by its contrast with the modern high hem of the shorts. Made from 100 per cent viscose, the playsuit is machine washable. 


4 Topshop One Shoulder Print Romper

Perfect for any special outdoor event, the Topshop One Shoulder Print Romper offers the wearer the chance to stand out from the crowd. The striking fabric corsage on the rompers' single shoulder creates sophistication, something usually lost on single shoulder pieces. The fabric's black background accentuates an unusual wildflower print. The tailored shorts and sewn fabric waistband show extra attention and detail. The romper has a side zipper and two slash pockets, making it easy to put on and functional to wear. Made from 100 per cent polyester, the romper is machine washable.


5 Monsoon Fusion Metamorphosis Jumpsuit

Made from comfortable, no-fuss jersey, the Monsoon Metamorphosis jumpsuit takes its name from the biological transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. The designers at Monsoon translate this transformation in the garment by use of vivid applique beading on the stunning halter neckline. Like the traditional jumpsuits of the 1970s, the Monsoon jumpsuit replicates the use of elastic at ankles. Rather than a simple band of elastic sewn into the hem of the garment, Monsoon elasticises approximately 15 cm of the trouser legs' bottoms. This replicates in the wider-than-usual waistline, capturing designer detail at all levels of the garment.


6 Thistlepearl Scrunch Romper by Urban Outfitters

The new Urban Outfitters Thistlepearl Scrunch Romper is the perfect addition to a summer wardrobe. Available in bright yellow, the romper immediately captures attention. The thin straps are a fixed size (no ugly adjustors to diminish the look) and are mimicked in the tie adjustment at the waist. Attractive detail at the top of the bodice creates extra flair, and the hemmed shorts contrast nicely with the casual feel of the bodice. For a perfect summer look, combine the romper with a jean jacket, big-brimmed summer hat, and boots for a vintage look.
