Rompers made a come back about half a decade ago and have remained on the “hot list” ever since. They are a great alternative to a dress – you don’t have to think about coordinating separates. While I am definitely apart of the romper fan club, I am particularly critical when it comes to the style and fit. If the cut isn’t just right, you could end up looking like a toddler in a potato sack. To avoid the potato sack look, choose a romper that will accentuate your best features. If you have long legs, go for one with short shorts. If you have a an attractive waist, choose a fitted romper that will showcase your hourglass figure. I think you get the idea…
When I spotted this blue floral romper at Liv Fashion Boutique, I was immediately drawn to it because of its potentially figure-flatting characteristics. The drawstrin was perfect for singeing in the waist, and the plunging neckline was ultra feminine. Being a fashionista who believes strongly in versatility, naturally I styled this romper two ways. One for day and one for night.
For daytime wear, I paired this piece with with a knit cardigan and a hemp belt. Belts can add flare to any outfit in a matter of seconds. I polished off the look with fringe booties, a cognac crossbody bag and ivory and gold jewelry. For a flirtier evening look, I lost the sweater and belt, replaced the crossbody bag with a more elegant clutch purse, and threw on a pair of strappy fringe sandals – currently my favorite shoes of the season.
If you are in the market for a statement shoe, than this fringy footwear is for you! Great for embellishing an uninspired outfit, or suitable for your favorite little black dress, it will be an all eyes on the shoes affair when you step out in these heels. Choose from black or blue, or go for the “safe” color, taupe (as pictured below). A big thanks to Mr. Madden for designing these “Fringly” things.
