Two By Vince Camuto Off-The-Shoulder Drawstring-Waist Romper
This weekend-ready version works from the beach to the boardwalk, and has a loose-fitting style with an airy feel and a drawstring waist so you can customize the fit. Long sleeves lend a little coverage for those who don’t like to bare their arms, but the off-the-shoulder style still lets you take advantage of an occasional summer breeze.

Ted Baker Daycee Giupure Lace Romper
The word “romper” may conjure up images of beach cover-ups and other casual styles, but this version is a testament to the trend’s versatility—give your go-to little black dress the evening off and swap in this intricate, lacy style instead (paired with metallic accessories and statement earrings) for your next cocktail night.

Gap Linen Stripe Tie-Belt Romper
Consider it the ultimate summer combo—chic blue and white striped linen done up in a loosely fitted romper with a matching belt (to create a flatteringly cinched waist). We love the elongating effect the subtle vertical stripes have, and that the shorts aren’t too, well, short.

Draper James Cutout Floral Print Cotton Pique Playsuit
It's hard not to love Reese Witherspoon's style, which perfectly combines classic femininity with a little Southern charm. Channel her look in a piece she designed for her clothing line Draper James. The floral print and clean lines feel dressy enough for brunch or a baby shower, but the comfortable cotton-pique construction will help you keep your cool, even on the hottest of days.
