Summer Style Ideas by Bloggers: How to Style Summer Rompers, Jumpsuits, and Pants


The summer solstice for this year is in two days, and, as is tradition at this point, I'm rounding up some of the most fashionable bloggers' summer OOTDs in the latest installment of my Style Ideas by Bloggers series. I may not be a fan of this hot, humid weather, but I'm definitely in love with these outfits!

One difference you'll notice in this installment of the series is that I have the guide divided into three posts: this one for styling summer rompers, jumpsuits, and pants; one next week for styling summer dresses; and another one the following week for styling summer skirts.

In this post, Christine, Deb, Ashley, Elizabeth, and Liv will be showing us how they style rompers and jumpsuits, and Hannah, Kristin, and Ruya will be showing us how they style pants.

As I was writing this post, it occurred to me: what even is the difference between a romper and a jumpsuit? I took my question to our all-knowing overlord, Google, and there is unsurprisingly a ton of varying definitions, but the gist seems to be that rompers are characterized by short pants, and jumpsuits are characterized by long pants.

Sounds legit enough to me. Let's get into it!




Christine is a Philadelphia-based fashion, travel, and lifestyle content creator and blogger. She's committed to sharing her passion for all things travel, food, fashion, beauty, music, and lifestyle through an authentic and vulnerable lens via YouTube, Instagram, and her blog. Christine Celine is a space to share her innermost thoughts, experiences, and love for the world through a narrative that connects to each and every one of you. Last but not least, Christine loves music tremendously and loves sharing monthly playlists. Whether it's her favorite products, a bomb playlist, an everyday routine, or a recent trip, Christine Celine hopes to inspire you to widen your horizons and pursue your passions.

In this outfit, Christine styled a patterned romper with understated strappy heels. She also paired it with a plain denim jacket for a day-to-night transition outfit.

By day, Deb leads product management for a Silicon Valley tech giant. By night (and on weekends), she blogs! She loves all things beautiful and spends most of her time photographing or writing about fashion and doing DIY projects around her house, changing up the décor for the season. A few times a year, she travels far and wide and writes about her experiences. On Deesignplay, you can find the latest on fashion, DIY décor, and travel.

Here, Deb has styled a culottes-esque jumpsuit. By combining it with a dark, multicolor headband, a straw crossbody, sandals, and bright nail polish, she gave the jumpsuit a southwestern look.

Ashley is an encourager, writer, bookworm, people person, and avid Google searcher. Her blog, The Honey Scoop, is a place where young women's stories can be shared, inspiring us all to live our best lives.

It's also a place on all things college, faith, beauty, and fashion. This website is your resource for learning how to put your best foot forward in whatever situation life throws at you through faith, hope, and love.

Ashley has also styled a culottes-esque jumpsuit but one in a neutral color. She amped up the tan by choosing a jumpsuit with a tie-around accent and paired it with some patterned fabric sandals.

Behind the über feminine and creatively curated fairytale world that is Lizzie in Lace is the California fashion blogger Elizabeth, a Kate Spade-obsessed, flower crown-wearing, dress-twirling kind of girl who believes in wearing tulle skirts for any occasion, eating cupcakes for breakfast, and sporting sequins during the day. Created in 2015 as an outlet to share daily outfits, Lizzie in Lace has become its own unique brand that women from all over the world visit for fashion inspiration. Lizzie in Lace is an online destination for millennials to feel inspired by all things feminine and pretty and is dedicated to creating positivity and happiness while encouraging women to add a little sparkle to their day through colorful and chic fashion, beauty, and travel posts.

Elizabeth has also styled a jumpsuit in a neutral color, but hers uses lace trimming and off-shoulder sleeves as accents. She paired it with a matching purse and shoes but added a pop of color with bright lipstick.

There is never a dull moment in Liv's life. When she's not working her full-time job, striving to hit the gym a couple times a week, making sure to get at least seven hours of sleep a night, attempting to date, or juggling a social life, she's the well-known fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogger over at LivForStyle. She uses LivForStyle as a creative outlet and her Instagram to document her crazy adventures as a 23-year-old in New York City. More importantly, she uses them to inspire women around the world to use today's fashion and beauty trends to express themselves in a healthy, self-fulfilling lifestyle.

Liv's jumpsuit is kind of a culmination of Christine, Deb, and Ashley's/Elizabeth's looks in that it has a bold pattern but is in a neutral color palette. Here, she has it styled with simple, matching accessories.

Hannah is the creator and writer behind Mimosas & Lipstick. She's been blogging for about four months and has been loving sharing affordable fashion with so many amazing humans. She has found the blogosphere to be such a positive place! After she graduated college and started a full-time job, she started her blog as a creative outlet, and she could've never imagined all the opportunities it's given her.

Moving into styling pants, here, Hannah's outfit is also understated, but it uses ruffled sleeves and pant hem, a wrap-around shirt hem, patterned pants, and some studded strappy sandals to add that unexpected touch that adds interest.

Kristin is an affordable fashion and travel blogger who recently moved from Germany back to the U.S. On her blog, Countdown to Friday, you can find real style and real travel tips for the everyday girl. When she's not shopping or traveling, Kristin is spending time with her Australian Shepherd, Rascal, and trying to balance healthy living with a serious love of fried food.

Kristin's outfit draws focus to her relaxed jeans by combining them with matching accessories in a neutral color. The mild distress and wash of the jeans and its raw-cut hem amped up the look.

Ruya is the writer behind the Dallas-based fashion and lifestyle blog Sweet, Short & Stylish. Ruya works as a social media specialist during the day and spends her nights shooting the latest looks that are perfect for the 20-something.

Ruya has also opted for an understated summer outfit, which draws interest with the lace detailing in her top and with a purse that matches her shoes, the strap of which falls just below the hem of her jeans.

From what Ruya, Kristin, Hannah, Liv, Elizabeth, Ashley, Deb, and Christine have shown us, it definitely looks like this summer's fashion trends are all about taking understated pieces and elevating them with eye-catching patterns, interesting accessories, and unexpected accents.
