Curvily Summer Staple: The Romper

It is officially the first day of summer.  Of course, that means that romper season is also here.  This one-and-done look in a snap is my summer go-to style.  It is effortless, won’t blow up and show my butt on a subway platform, and lets me sit crosslegged on the grass in the park without giving everyone a show.  I can even stand on a wind-whipping rooftop with no fear.

For really hot days, the best rompers combine all the lightweight goodness of a sundress with the softness of PJs.  And yes, the bathroom situation can be a bit bare, but hey!  For a style that makes my mornings so easy and my long days more comfortable, I’m willing to double check the lock on the stall.

This scoopneck floral romper is Forever 21 from a couple years ago, and it is still a piece I reach for as soon as the weather allows it.  Bonus: Rompers tend to be pretty inexpensive, so you can grab a few for your summer wardrobe and wear them for years to come. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite picks that you can shop now – click through to find your own summer go-to.
