- Jumper… an action flick starring the now-engaged Hayden and Rachel.
- Romper… toddlers wobbling around in various onesie-ensembles in a daycare playroom.
Jumpers/rompers by the fashion definition are making a bit of a comeback. Two summers ago, I snapped up a beachy cover-up version that popped up on VictoriasSecret.com. Threw it on over my suit and was ready to roll.
Cut to 2010, and the jumper is bigger, better and more versatile.
A variety of colors, prints, fabrics and styles made the jumper cooler than ever. The Mara Hoffman (1) would be perfect for a night on the town, with its splashes of tan and coral. The Joie jumpsuit (4) makes a statement paired with a bunch of silver (or gold, or both) bangles. The tribal Victoria’s Secret (3) is begging to be your new Favorite Summer Outfit, worn with everything from cardigans and leggings while it’s still a bit chilly, to gladiator sandals and nothing else come July.
I love how dainty the jumper from Elizabeth and James is (2); even though it’s super short, it somehow still feels demure. The Roxy jumper (6) hits the lingerie note that’s in trend right now, and the Rachel Pally printed jumper is both ladylike and sexy with its longer sleeves and deep V. Can’t leave out the beachy favs from Victoria’s Secret (5) and Marc by Marc Jacobs (8), which would both be perfect compliments to your swimsuit and flip flops.
Ah, jumper-talk makes me long for warmer weather…
