Retro Trend by the Stars: Rompers...

A style that I have been following since the end of last summer has been the revamped, retro romper!  Made famously by those stars more in-tuned to their bohemian/retro side, this trend will be seen everywhere this summer.  The best part about a romper is that it's the ease of a sundress, yet the casualness of simple shorts & a tank.  It is a trend that looks great on all body types, you just have to style it properly to yours...

Here are a few different styled rompers for you to try, all at reasonable prices for a new trend:

If rompers are new to your wardrobe, try a floral print to ease you into this new trend.  A floral pattern is flirty & chic & does not require as much attention to detail...

(Forever 21: $19.80) 

If you are concerned about styling to your particular body figure, but are also new to using belts as attention to detail accessories, try something with a 'tie waist.'  This will allow you the ease of a belt as well as give you the desired shape you are looking for...

(Anthropologie: $49.95)

If you are looking to use a romper for more of a night style, find a dramatic neckline to play up the appeal.  For instance, this one shoulder ruffle in a beautiful emerald would be perfect for an evening look, paired with a skinny braided belt & woven wedges! 

(Top Shop $26)

A romper trend more famously made by the Kardashian sisters has been the full pant legged romper.  A style that I originally pinned for those tall & thin, but quickly dubbed wrong after I saw how gorgeous Khloe Kardashian looked when she rocked a similar style.  As you all know, Khloe has height & beautiful curves & she made the style look flawless by tailoring it to her body shape.  She cinched at the right places & drew shape where need be.

(Asos: $73.86)

Since denim is so popular right now, I could not leave out a denim romper! Definitely a more casual style, but still tying feminine & masculine features together, which I love. 

(Nordstrom: $58) 

Bring the whole look together...
