Cute Summer Outfit Ideas: How to Wear Casual Jumpsuits

Casual jumpsuits are a summer staple we look forward to wearing year after year. Perfect for throwing on with a pair of sandals on a hot summer day, jumpsuits and rompers are an easy way to achieve that “cute but effortless” look.

However, because a jumpsuit is pretty much your entire outfit it can be hard to keep it looking fresh. In the immortal words of Lizzie McGuire: you wouldn’t want to be an “outfit repeater,” would you?  

 To give you a bit of inspiration, here are 10 cute summer outfit ideas for wearing casual jumpsuits.

1. Go bold

You can never go wrong with bold patterns. Make your casual romper your go-to statement piece by opting for bright colors and stripes.

Go forth and be bold.

2. Add a scarf  

Channel your inner Brigitte Bardot-- the French style icon--with this look. A silk scarf adds just a touch of classic glamour to any outfit and can easily be converted into a stylish headband if you get too hot.

Two cute summer outfits in one: easily tie a silk scarf around your neck or in your hair for a look that’s Cote d'Azur approved.

3. Wear your casual romper over a bathing suit

A casual jumpsuit makes for the perfect beach cover up. Hint: stick to synthetic fabrics if you want it to dry quickly.

4. Class it up with some wedges 

Sometimes you want to look casual...but not too casual. When you’re not throwing it on over a bathing suit at the beach, you can easily wear your romper for a night out on the town. A pair of wedges will instantly add some class to your more dressy rompers and jumpsuits--without leaving you feeling overdressed or uncomfortable.

5. Try an off-the-shoulder casual jumpsuit

A bare neckline instantly takes a cute summer outfit up a few notches. Show off your sun kissed tan in a casual romper with a shoulder-skimming neckline.

6. Take a cue from the ‘70s

If you’re a lover of cute boho outfits, you’ll rock this flower child-inspired look. Pair a wide-legged romper with 1970s-esque clogs, sun glasses and some gold accessories.

9.  Add some layers

If it gets a bit chilly, pop a denim jacket over your romper for a look that keeps you warm but still screams summer.
