A Single Piece of Material Appropriate for Various Occasions
As we slowly try to create outfits to wear work, shopping or cocktail hour during this painful ode to global warming, we have been calling on one summer essential time and again – the one-piece. Call ’em rompers or jumpsuits or whatever have you, but thank god for these one piece wonders during these so brutal times. Once thought to be short, flowy numbers only models and petite fours could pull off. Single-piece suits transitioned in Spring to a must have item appropriate for many occasions.
Silk, satin, jacquard, pique – you name it, designers have created a single piece of material appropriate for various occasions. This week’s sample sales include jumpers by Pencey and Quail on Gilt.com, Free People on Ideeli.com and the Jodi Arnold Sample Sale. Even outside of Conde Nast, Manhattanites are sporting longer versions with capped sleeves to the office and shorter jumpers out to dine. Even more casual one-pieces look great for daytime strolls or beach cover-ups. For less casual occasions, choose wisely as rompers will make their way into fall and more transitional pieces look smarter and last longer paired with a blazer and suede moto booties.
