Male Rompers’d have to be living under a rock without WiFi to have not seen the tizzy the RompHim has caused. To be clear, it is literally just a romper for men—leaving all of us who love playsuits wondering why the “him” needed to be injected into the name…

Bardot Top

The Bardot top is destined to become one of summer’s most desirable pieces. To bombshell this babelicious basic, opt for a streamlined crisp white bodysuit version. Embolden the look with a strong splash of color, pairing with a neon pink wrap skirt.  Sprinkle in silver metallics, with a drop earring, stackable bracelets,  strappy heels,  a corresponding cross body bag. Pop the look with a white hot pair of cat-eye sunglasses.
