A halter jumpsuit is no longer just for casual wear. While jumpsuits and rompers are still enjoyed at the mall and picnics, these versatile beauties are also an excellent substitute for the little black dress. Anywhere a cocktail dress is appropriate, a jumpsuit is equally so. And since there are so many colors, solids and prints to choose from, it’s easy to find one for any special occasion.
One style of halter jumpsuit that is easy to wear anywhere is the wide leg jumpsuit. For casual wear, enjoy this style with or without a belt. Wide leg rompers are worn much like a maxi skirt, but can also be worn with high heels. Platform shoes are ideal when paired with a wide leg romper for a chic, up-to-date look. To dress the suit up, pair it with stilettos instead of platform shoes. Add a metallic jacket, and it's ready for a great evening.
Another style to consider is the strapless romper. These, too, are appropriate for dress occasions, and if an evening event is likely to be chilly, a simple solution is a blazer. This outfit screams for a strappy sandal like gladiator sandals. Match the sandals to the jumper, or go bold with a pair in a high contrast color to the outfit. Choose bright pink with a yellow romper or bold red with a black jumper. Strapless rompers are offered by Love Squared and others.
Ruffled jumpers can be dressed up or down, just like the wide leg romper. Ruffled jumpers worn with sandals or wedges make great casual wear, while pairing the same jumper with stilettos or pumps dresses it up. Since the ruffled top is so elaborate, keep jewelry simple. A pair of hoop earrings and two to three bangle bracelets should suffice. Ruffled jumpers are available by Baby Phat and more.
When wearing lots of jewelry, a V-neck romper is perfect for showing off necklaces and intricate earrings. Pair the V-neck romper with pendant necklaces, chokers or several chains for a retro look. If wearing just one or two necklaces, top the look with chandelier earrings. A great way to show off a V-neck and nice jewelry is by wearing the hair up in a bun or ponytail. V-neck halter jumpsuit styles are available by BCBGeneration and others.
