To romp or not to romp – that is the question. At least in today's blog post! I'm personally a huuuuuuge fan of rompers and jumpsuits! I love that it's ONE outfit. One quick option.
I love rompers that are cute, cozy, functional AND beautiful (or at the very least, cute enough to feel confident in). Today I'm sharing a romper that got A LOT of attention on my Instagram in the past year. I figured I should share it here again since it's the perfect summer to fall transition outfit, AND I'm also sharing a little roundup of fave rompers or jumpsuits I've owned or have my eye on.
In a hurry? Go straight to my top picks below!
My favorite romper
This super lightweight romper is soooo pretty and feminine. The lace cutout details paired with the ruffle bottom legs are super pretty, but it's extremely lightweight so you can layer up or cool off and wear it from summer right into fall.
I also love that it looks kind of like a dress, but functions like pants. Oh and that drawstring waist is helpful to not feel like you're wearing a total mumu (which hey – not against that look!) but it helps give you a bit of a figure.
I also love the little buttons too.
HOT DEAL ALERT: Right now, you can get my favorite romper for 35% off! That's a savings of almost $40 on this super versatile romper!! Sizes are limited so add to cart FAST!
How's the sizing?
What do I wear under it?
LOTS of questions on stories about what I wore under it. I paired it with one of my wardrobe STAPLE nude undershirts that I wear anytime something's a little too low, a little too sheer, a little less coverage anywhere I don't necessarily want to draw attention but just want to feel a bit more modest!
These undershirts (and their amazingly perfect slips!) are just like a slip or undershirt should be – sleek and light and a tiny bit stretchy and fit flat and perfect right under any shirt or dress.
How to look good in a jumpsuit or romper:
Okay let's start with the most important thing: you need to buy a FLATTERING romper! You'll see a range of anything from a janitor look to some very scanty lingerie type rompers out there. I'm always looking for 3 things with a romper:
- Something at the waist – a tie or a belt or a cinch or something that'll give you a waist, even if you have to add it yourself!
- Good fabric – something that'll be comfortable to wear.
- High reviews – if a LOT of other people approve of its fit and form, there's a good chance I will, too!
Are jumpsuits/rompers in style?
Based on the massive amount of retailers carrying, featuring and promoting rompers right this hot minute, I would say that's a definite YES.
How to pee in a jumpsuit:
This is a legit question! You're gonna have to take the whole thing off. There's just no getting around that. Sorry!
A romper that buttons down the back or has a zillion buttons? Um, good luck! Yet another reason why it's always a good idea to check reviews because most likely, someone else has already complained about it if that's the case!
What shoes do you wear with a romper?
A romper for the bump (or just to feel cozy AND put together in!)
I've been so, so in love with this cozy romper, especially with my bump and while I've been on bed rest! But I know for sure I'll be wearing this a ton even after I have this baby, too.
Although it doesn't have a cinch or tie at the waist, it's still really flattering with that oversized baggy look that's really in right now. It's like parachute pants are back, but all in one comfy cozy piece you can wear to lounge in or out and about. A cute and socially acceptable onesie for adults?… I'm all about it!!
I give this romper a 10/10 for comfort, being the perfect amount of oversized, and it's especially perfect if you're pregnant/postpartum. It comes in six beautiful colors, but don't wait long to buy because they're starting to sell out!
Best performance apparel jumpsuit
I made the All Day Jumpsuit discovery at Vuori before I was pregnant and it became my new favorite no-brainer outfit before my bump! One of my girlfriends was wearing it on our trip in Palms Springs and I wasn’t even surprised to find out her super cute jumpsuit was Vuori. If you’re like me and you’ve woken up and just can’t think about what goes together or be bothered with what to wear, this jumpsuit is the perfect fit.
It's sooo cozy and an easy travel fit with any kind of jacket! Another reason why I love this for travel is because if you’re intentionally packing light it’s easy to get a couple of uses out of this one piece and it’s super lightweight to pack down.
It's also PERFECT for running errands around town on a Saturday. Hello roll out of bed, run to the supermarket, and back without putting an ounce of effort into your outfit.
This jumpsuit has over 300 reviews and almost a perfect overall rating! I totally agree with this reviewer who wrote, “I can wear this jumpsuit all day every day. Fits perfectly.” This is just an effortlessly cool and comfy look that's great for any occasion.
Long time favorite romper
Okay onto another romper I've worn and loved for YEARS. This one has been a closet staple fave since 2015 and I'm not planning on quitting anytime soon. It's extremely nursing-friendly since it has a crossover front, it's CRAZY comfy, and looks flattering on anyone. I first saw it on my friend Kelsey Nixon (I get a lot of good ideas from her!!) when she was filming her show on the Cooking Channel and she's quite a bit shorter than I am! But I love how it fits for me too!!
I like to pair this romper with sandals too, but again, super cute w/ casual sneaks or a bootie for a dressed up look. And it's $88 but it'll last a LONG time. Remember, I've had mine since 2015! (If you like the navy blue color instead of black, it's on sale for 30% off right now!)
Here's a roundup of some of our fave rompers right now on the interwebs. There really are some SUPER cute finds here! Happy romping!!
