The Universally Flattering Summer Romper

If you had asked me how I felt about wearing rompers out in public a year ago, I would've said that's a hard 'no'. But apparently 2018 is the year of the romper for me! You may have caught this red crochet romper I wore here, and now I'm sharing a new favourite: this floral bell-sleeved romper from Tobi.

I'm really excited to show you this particular romper, because I genuinely believe it's a style that's universally flattering! Here's why:

  1. The wrap around-style neckline is flattering on bigger as well as smaller chests. The tie around the waist (more on that below) makes it easy to pull the neckline tighter for a smaller chest, or leave as-is if you need more room.
  2. The tie waist means you can adjust how much you want to cinch the waist.
  3. The shorts are flowy and loose, which I think look far more flattering than tight shorts (those just aren't as forgiving!). The little ruffle trim doesn't hurt either - it's so cute!!
  4. The long, bell-sleeves keep the clothing-to-skin ratio even (show some skin on bottom, cover up a bit on top - or vice versa).
  5. We all know black is a universally flattering colour: that's why I love that the base of this floral print is black!

If you want a full-out flattering look, it also helps to match your shoes to your skintone. I am totally obsessed with these light pink heels from Target (similar). They're pretty close to my skintone, so they really give my legs an elongated look (and at 5'5", I don't mind a little added height!).

Is there a piece of clothing in your closet that you think would be universally flattering? I'd love to hear what it is - share in the comments below!
