Fashion // How to style a romper in winter

Red is my favorite color, and December is my favorite month of the year. So I’m super jazzed about life right now. 😀 My friend recently gave me this amazing romper as a birthday gift, and I thought I’d style it for winter, because I don’t want to wait for warmer weather to wear it! It’s also the perfect color and style for the winter months. Here’s how I styled this romper in winter, and how you can rock a similar look of your own.

I’m all about contrasting textures, so for this outfit, to contrast the light fabric of the romper, I wore thick, textured, diamond-pattern tights. Mad love for tights of all kinds on this blog, but I especially love black tights with some kind of texture; it’s a subtle way to add some flair to a look. As for wearing a romper in winter, it’s easy if you pay attention to color. Obviously, darker tones are more suited for winter, and even though this romper is relatively light weight, the half sleeves make sure you’re a bit warmer.

I wore this romper for Thanksgiving, so I dressed up the look with these chunky black booties from Jeffrey Campbell. I added some statement jewelry—my new Kate Spade watch I got as a 25th birthday present from my family, and a two-tone cuff bracelet! I like this bracelet because it means I can wear both silver and gold jewelry at the same time without breaking any hard and fast fashion rules.

Tips for wearing a romper in winter:
Go for jewel tones/darker tones like navy, burgundy, emerald, or black.
Emphasize texture with knit tights, wool scarves, or even a fur
Wear boots/booties instead of flats

Personally, I love dressing super seasonally. In spring I’ll always wear pastels, in summer I’m all about the deep blues and greens, in fall I always wear oranges and greens and reds, and now that it’s winter/Christmastime, you’ll see a lot of red on this blog! I love having four seasons a year, and dressing according to the season makes me feel more energetic, creative, and happy! What do you love best about this season?

    I like the detail on the boots. And dressing seasonally is a great idea! Though, I live in Asia and it’s hot, humid and sometimes rainy in my country the whole year round, so there’s not much opportunity to dress to different seasons 😬

  • This is the cutest outfit ever! I’ve actually never even worn a romper, but it looks so good on you!

    Very cute outfit! Tights seem to be the best method for wearing cute things during the winter, and you could totally get away with that outfit in my area. It isn’t too cold.

  • Those shoes are so cute and unique! Overall, it looks great together!
