Yes, Winter Rompers Are a Thing—Here's How to Wear Them

Hear the term “winter rompers” and wonder what we could possibly be talking about? You’re not alone. There’s an inherent irony in the indication that a strictly warm-weather one-piece be outfitted for the freezing temperatures of winter. But when it comes to discovering the underrated ways to breathe new life into our pieces that don't get as much attention, we’ll gladly flex our knowledge.

Wearing a one-piece this time of year comes down to its ability to—you guessed it—layer. Fashion girls will be layering thin turtlenecks, sweaters, and blouses under their rompers this time of year, and for those in climates that require extra warmth, throwing on a cozy teddy jacket or a classic blazer will do the trick. However, not all jumpsuits and rompers are made equally. Right now, we’re loving styles that reference old-school boiler suits with utility-style detailing and pieces in all shades of neutral tones.

Soften up a voluminous one-piece with a pretty blouse and ladylike heels. Don't forget to throw on an artful pair of earrings to top it off.

Fashion girls are layering their turtlenecks under just about everything this winter and that certainly includes their rompers. Make a utilitarian jumpsuit feel a bit more forward through pretty flats and an It bag.

Think rompers aren't work-appropriate? Think again. This impeccable looks nails 9-to-5 dressing to a T with the additions of a strong blazer and fail-proof pumps.

We can't believe we didn't think of this styling trick first. She undid the top half of her jumpsuit and tied the sleeves around her waist, creating a waist-cinching effect like a belt would.

How pretty is this shade of pink? Try out the boiler suit trend by opting for a vibrant shade. Don't forget to pile on the jewelry.

Give your one-piece the streetwear treatment with a slightly oversize graphic T-shirt. The high-low balance will feel ultra-cool.

Have a more classic jumpsuit style to work with? Try wearing it with a button-down and coordinating heeled boots.
