Jumpsuits and rompers are everywhere right now, thanks to fashion-forward celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna who have made it the go-to look of the summer. But while you might think that this style is hard to pull off, it's really all about finding the right silhouette. Here are five distinct one-piece looks that will keep you cool and chic all summer long.
The thing about chambray is that it's super comfortable. So while the backless bustier and slimming cigarette legs of this Ali & Jay jumpsuit from Nordstrom evoke a sexy vintage vibe, you'll feel like you're lounging in your pajamas. If you have to drag yourself into the office during summer, pair it with a lightweight blazer and heels for a more sophisticated look.
All those hours you've spent in Pilates or barre class, working your arms to the point where it hurts to move the next day? They'll finally be worth the pain. The halter neck of this Plenty by Tracy Reese jumpsuit from Anthropologie puts all the attention on your well-toned shoulders, while the fresh paisley print adds a feminine, bohemian touch. Slip it into your gym bag so that you can head straight from the studio to post-workout drinks.
Sometimes all a girl wants is some definition at her waist—which can be tough for anyone with a tall, athletic figure. Not only will the belted-bow waist of this culotte jumpsuit from Gap help you emphasize your curves, but your long, lithe legs will look great in the palazzo pant style (which is not so easy for those of us on the shorter side).
Tropical prints always look chic during the hottest season of the year, and this breezy Free People jumper exudes effortless summer style. Plus it's totally versatile—add a shirt or tank underneath for a more understated look, or, for a bolder skin-baring silhouette, pair it with a swimsuit top or a sports bra.
Simple stripes will forever be in vogue, so if you're headed to the beach, don't forget to pack this classic Madewell number. Throw it on over your bathing suit or wear it for a day spent strolling along the boardwalk while channeling your inner Brigitte Bardot. The sporty short-leg romper is also roomy enough to wear while playing some frisbee or beach tennis on the sand.
