Resort Report: Rompers Ahead

“Rainy days and Monday’s always get me down.”  Don’t you love the Carpenters?  It’s no wonder people suffer from the winter blues.  Grey skies and downpouring rain is akin to giant teardrops.  Sadness.  Whoa, whoa, whoa. 

Fashionistah avant-garde: Miss Richie working her silk romper like 2 years ago.

This week while leafing through January 2010 issues at the magazine stand, I was renewed with hope and optimism.  Spring fashion does it for me.  The explosion of vibrant colours, trend reports in accessories, new silhouettes re-invented and above all, the promise of warm weather to sashay these hottt styles in.  Luckily, Resort wear comes out to bridge the gap between Winter and Spring, much like Fall Trans (transitional).  Don’t you love all this fashion lingo?

For me, one trend which I will embrace with loving arms is The Romper.  Similar to the bubble skirt, the romper flies below the radar, waiting patiently in the wings for the mainstream to take hold of the trend.  Maybe this trend will never ignite but it’s a style that I recommend for the fashion risk-taker.  By definition, the romper is a loose-fitting one-piece garment having short bloomers, worn especially by children for play.  Sounds delicious, non?

Glamour Vacationistah – For rompers which have the versatility of day to night, there are styles in silk, light floral chiffons or printed cottons.  Sometimes high heels look off with miniskirts, however, the platform with romper works veryx3 well indeed. 

A Patterned Romper to Write Home About: Tibi Coral Reef

Utilitarian Romper – Imagine a loose fitting cotton style in a khaki or a soft denim to trek through city streets and a pair of embellished gladiators.  I have seen some very fetching versions from BCBG and French Connection – so freakin’ cute.

Charlotte Ronson romper. Would be so cute with multi-chain coral necklace and fringe sandals. You die!
