Summer’s Most Versatile: The Romper

There’s no mistaking the value of an easy sundress in summer’s high heat, but today we’re talking about the unsung counterpoint to the traditional hot-weather uniform: the romper. As effortless as a dress with the carefree bonus of not having to worry about a wayward breeze, it’s time to recognize the wardrobe-workhorse potential of the romper.

It’s tough to envision a playsuit as a dressed-up option, but it’s not to be underestimated. Match a classic silhouette with a few well-placed accessories, and you’re ready for work or fancier affairs. Try a DKNY romper with a Thakoon blazer, Pour La Victoire tote, and Elizabeth and James sandals.

Casual does not mean unrefined. Reserve the smock-top terry romper for the beach and instead try on a sweet Dolce Vita romper in crisp cotton and airy silk. Wear it with Rag & Bone flats, a Nixon watch, and not much else.
