Tuesday, June 16, 2009 Right Now: Rompin’ Around
Resort collections have come a long way in the past few years. No longer intended exclusively for those jetsetting to the Saint-Barts or the Bahamas, many of the collections shown this year featured pieces that could easily be integrated into anyone’s summer wardrobe. Anyone that could afford them anyway. Most collections showed a variation of shorts, blousy tops, playful dresses and skirts, statement jewelry, and of course your good old romper, playsuit, onesie, whatever you want to call it.
For those of you who thought the romper was just a phase re-introduced in the 80′s revival explosion last summer, they’re back! More like they never left. This season Alexander Wang put a twist on the summer-y romper and opted to keep his signature mesh cut-outs to create a versatile piece that’s perfect for a casual night out. Derek Lam choose to do a more formal look but kept things fun with a whimsical clamshell print and heavy jewelry. For those of you lacking a disposable bank account we have a variety of great rompers in stock! Whether you’re looking for something to wear on a night out or spending a lazy day at the beach, a romper can work for almost any occasion. It’s all about how you wear it!
