SUMMER IS NOT OVER YET!

I repeat SUMMER IS NOT OVER YET!

 

Don’t let those store window displays or even my posts about Fall Fashion Trends (like this one from last week) rain on your summer parade!  There are still two whole WEEKS before September rolls around and for most of us it is still hot outside.

 

Like boiling hot.  Like…..

Dear, Humidity, why do I even bother combing my hair when it is just going to be a sweaty, frizzy mess come lunchtime –  type of hot.  So now, let’s get on with it – THE ROMPER

The Romper – It’s Sexy and Practical!

I’ve been wearing one-piece playsuits  for the past decade or so, but this season in particular the one-piece shorts+tank or pants+top phenomenon has had a glowing moment in the fashion spotlight.

The one-piece outfit is often referred to as a ROMPER (or PLAYSUIT) for shorts or a JUMPSUIT for pants or a culotte length leg.  It  is a fantastic alternative to short skirts and dresses when you want to show some leg but you don’t want to worry about also showing your undergarments.  Wearing a romper IS a statement because I personally find them undeniably sexy and form-fitting, even though they are nothing more but a combined top and bottom.

The romper is waist defining and shows a woman’s curves without necessarily being skin-tight.  The great thing about this trend is that it is also very easy to dress up for an occasion by adding in statement jewelry, heels and a clutch or you can dress it down by pairing with flatform or flat sandals, a sunhat and bucket bag or knapsack.

The options right now are endless and the great thing is that you can find really nice jumpsuits on sale to wear for the rest of summer or….here’s an idea …next year!

JUMPING AHEAD IN A JUMPSUIT – SS2017 TRENDSPOTTING

 

Don’t think of the romper and the jumpsuit as a “trend” per say…think of them as a new classic!  There are pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, and one-piecers like the jumpsuit and rompers….they work right into the mix of your wardrobe and do not show any sign of disappearing next season.

 

Just to prove that this new classic silhouette will be around next year (so you don’t have to fear spending your money on a dying trend), I’ve put together a brand new Pinterest Board HERE dedicated to the RESORT and CRUISE 2017 collection that have rompers and jumpsuits!

 

 

 

Everyone from Missoni, Ellie Saab, Louis Vuitton, Armani and Mara Hoffman featured one-piece items that are not that dissimilar to what you would find on sale now!

Here I am buying my Winter Coat in advance on sale!

 

Before I get into some of the great rompers and jumpsuits that are on sale now I wanted to talk a bit about my philosophy towards fashion that I call FASHION FORESIGHT – tracking future trends to shop the sales now so that you can buy better quality clothes ON SALE and still be fashionable. I’ve written about my philosophy towards fashion here, and I’ve explained how the runway calendar for fashion works and how you can spot the trends in advance with Fashion Foresight here!

 

You may also like reading an article I recently wrote for the IFB – The World’s largest online community of Independent Fashion Bloggers called “A Fashion Blogger’s Secret Weapon: Know the Trends Before They Happen“.  This article has been shared I don’t know how many times, and since writing it I’ve gotten all kinds of proposals for new collaborations including a great new affiliate partnership with Fendi! …..More on that in the FALL!

Shop the SS2017 Trend NOW

 

 

There are still a few good weeks to wear this trend this summer if you haven’t already done so, and if you’re sitting on the fence about whether or not you should buy one I hope I’ve convinced you to just go for it because this silhouette is here to stay.

 

These are a few of my favorite selections from Shopbop.com that are still available and I’ve done some research to only share styles that are a great deal! – All styles were found here …btw! –

What do you think about my picks from Shopbop.com, does anyone shop with them already?  I’d love to hear what you think.  And is anyone wearing the romper/jumpsuit trend?  I actually still think I can pull this off for a few more years, and with longer shorts or pants for decades to come, I just find it so flattering, but I’d love your feedback!

  • I haven’t jumped on the romper / jumpsuit trend yet – I guess I’m not too late. But after seeing your picks, I might give one a try. I like most of the black sleeveless jumpsuits you featured.

  • I bought one romper last year and I wore once last summer and once this summer. I’m not a huge fan of them because of the bathroom issue. But after reading this post, I’ll hang onto mine. Love the back of your romper!

  • I doubt anyone will ever find me gallivanting around in a playsuit, Angie, but I am loving it on you 🙂 there’s such an ole world charm about the print, and the bicycle. All you need, really, is a picnic hamper and a field of tulips.

  • You look too cute in this romper! I just love the plaid and colors. It is entirely too darn hot to even think about fall clothing in my opinion, and I have weeks of summer styles to still wear.

  • You are so right (of course) about buying out of season for better value. I think most of my wardrobe is classic with a few trend pieces thrown in which makes keeping up with the latest looks pretty easy. Usually I restrict my shopping to sale time & think about what I need instead of simply what is IN. Also if I follow you I get a sneek peak into the next seasons looks 😉
    WIN WIN!
