3 Tips for Wearing a Romper During the Day

The romper trend has been going strong for years now. The look is an easy to wear, versatile option for summer. When styled correctly, this one piece garment can take you seamlessly from day to night.

Here are three tips to keep the look day-time appropriate.

I centered my look around this Sachin & Babi romper. Not only did I love the color palette and bit of pattern and texture, but I really loved the way the lines of the garment created a flattering silhouette, narrowing the waistline. Besides that, the piece has pockets! Who doesn’t love a look with pockets?
