Since its return in fashion in the late 2010s after becoming popular playwear for children, the romper-also known as playsuit-has become a favorite summer staple among women of all ages. Ideal for movement, it has the ease of a dress with the comfort of shorts, and it’s the perfect solution for both socially distanced daily activities and date nights. Along with an abundance of jumpsuits, the one-piece garment is a revived go-to for designers across the fashion capitals. Recent collections particularly honed in on a black and white color palette for the playful piece, bringing a more sophisticated feeling to the look. Here, L’OFFICIEL takes a look at the chicest examples of the romper trend from the Spring/Summer 2021 runways.
