Utility Romper

The utility romper is a modern twist on the classic romper with functional features like pockets, fun zippers, and adjustable belts for a flattering cinched-waist look. These rompers are generally casual by design-often featuring materials like linen, soft twill, or denim-but can be found in dressier materials and styles as well. This military-inspired one piece looks great with sneakers, ankle boots, or simple strappy heels. Neutral colors are the most popular picks for utility rompers, with fan-favorites being olive, beige, light purple, or grey tones that show off the added details. The relaxed fit is comfy and flattering at the same time and perfect for a simple, trendy look.

Casual Romper

Casual rompers, such as a front-tie or wrap style option, offer ultimate comfort and style that’s perfect for laid-back days. The best thing about casual, comfy rompers is that you can easily throw them on with minimal styling required-perfect for getting out the door in no time. Pair your one-and-done ensemble with strappy sandals or slip ons or throw on a pair of trendy sneakers.

The material for casual rompers can be a soft cotton or linen, an easy-to-style denim, or even a silky satin that feels like you’re wearing your favorite pajamas but looks like you’re ready to conquer your day in style.

Formal Romper

Rompers may resemble shorts and a shirt, but that definitely does not mean they are all casual. Dressy options like a beautiful lace romper or a sleek halter top romper are becoming increasingly popular for date nights or cocktail hour. Accessories can be added to a simple and sophisticated white or black romper, or a unique style like a romper with an asymmetrical overlay or an added, attached maxi skirt can be dressy enough all on its own.

Some rompers are even work-appropriate and can fit business casual guidelines. A scalloped or button-up collared romper can add a touch of fun to an office-ready option, or a simple, modest design can worn for stricter dress codes. Avoid rompers that are too short or that are too revealing when in a dressy or business-casual environment.

Long Sleeve Romper

A long-sleeve romper is a great option when you’re looking for a romper outfit with a bit more coverage. The sleeves balance out the shorts at the bottom and can dress the look up. A long-sleeve floral romper pairs perfectly with a straw sunhat for sunny days and a classy option like a striped pattern or an elegant solid color paired with accessories can take you from day to night with ease.

Try a fun neckline like an off-the-shoulder or a mock neck to add extra flair to a sleeved number. Choose a romper with a defined waist detail to elongate the look of your legs, or choose an option with an undefined waist for a look that resembles a chic, long-sleeved dress.

Culotte Romper

An example of a popular romper option that features longer legs is a culotte romper. This style resembles the relaxed, trendy fit of trousers and typically features a calf-length or ankle hemline. This option works well for showing off shoes or to balance a tank-top style top. A belt or tie at the waist adds definition to avoid the longer length of the one-piece becoming boxy or overbearing. The culotte romper can be either dressy or casual, and is a bit easier to style than a short romper for a day at the office or when attending a semi-professional event.

The full-length version of a romper is called a jumpsuit. Instead of a shorts and shirt combo, this option is a mix between pants and a shirt-but is still a one piece by design. Jumpsuits can be casual like an apron jumpsuit or a drawstring waist ensemble or can be dressy enough to wear to formal balls or galas. They easily fit dress codes of varying degrees and are perfect for everything from running errands to conquering your day at the office. They can also be layered with casual jackets or fitted blazers, and come in almost any style and material imaginable. From loungewear to black-tie attire, jumpsuits are versatile and as trendy as ever.
