Keep it stylish with rompers
While the jumpsuit hangover is evident in red-carpet celeb spottings and even in our very own wardrobes, a shorter version of the garment is what has taken popular style by storm.fashion and trends Updated: Aug 29, 2012 01:20 IST
Rompers or playsuits have caught the fancy of our very own desi celebs, be it fashionistas Malaika Arora Khan, Bipasha Basu and Priyanka Chopra, or Hollywood hotties like Katharine Mcphee and Jessica Chastain. While rompers have been sported by the fashion conscious for a while now, the experimental nature of the outfit is what makes it fun to wear.
“The trick lies in how well you work with your accessories. Rompers define cool casual street style during the day with a pair of comfortable flats, your favourite sling bag for running errands and a hat for that unmatched 70’s sultry feel,” says designer Gemma Carver. “At the same time, it is a laidback alternative for the usual cocktail dresses. You can edge the romper at night with quirky brooches, a chic blazer and towering pumps, giving a sense of opulence and versatility to your outfit,” she adds.
American-Belgian designer Diane Von Furstenberg’s Resort 2013 collection, Ritu Beri’s recently showcased collection at Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai, as well as designer Sailex NG’s 50’s inspired collection, which took over the ramp at the same event, incorporated rompers as a part of their fashion display.
So, pair your playsuits with fun accesories and explore our four romper looks.
