Rompers

I am finding Spring’s jumpsuit trend fascinating, though not always wearable. A glam, fitted black catsuit that flares out slightly from the knee to show just a peek of a spiked heel is one thing — one made of denim with big, puffy pleated pockets? Quite another.

But the short romper is the perfect compromise. I can’t wait to wear one with black tights, little black ankle boots and a fantastic sweater. Better yet, a luxurious cape.

On the runway — Betsey Johnson, BCBG Maz Azria and Derek Lam made the look their own:

And now..for some ultra exciting news. Topshop, the UK’s genius affordable clothing shop, is coming to the U.S. Its first shop is set to open in NYC (Broome and Broadway) on April 2nd. Here’s a taste of what to expect — each of these Topshop rompers cost less than $80.00.
