It’s Thursday (yay!) and I am so excited to introduce you guys to a new weekly installment: Danqing’s (my) Closet! Every week I’ll be posting an actual outfit from my actual closet! I’m going to try and highlight a particular garment or trend each week and show an easily emulated and relatable way to wear it. I think a lot of times it’s a bit hard to try and put together a similar outfit to a celebrity because they lead such different lives from us normal people, but me? Psshh, ya’ll can all rock the outfits that I wear! So, let’s get started!
First, I have to apologize for the fact that I’m sporting a margarita as an accessory in these pictures. Due to some unfortunate (read: rainy and gross) weather here in Shanghai I’ve been unable to get any pictures that seem cheery enough for a romper, so I pulled these from my spring break files.
I’m wearing a great (extremely basic) romper that I got from H&M last year for like 15 bucks; unfortunately, they didn’t make it this year, but below I found some similar rompers from Forever 21. A romper in a neutral color is the perfect easy-but-cute outfit for summer. I recommend buying a romper that nips in the waist rather than at the hip, it’s more figure flattering I think. After you have the romper on, just gather some accessories and you’re good to go. My scarf is from the Matthew Williamson H&M collaboration 3 years ago and it’s probably one of my favorite things – a bright, fun scarf can add so much to an outfit! When getting a scarf like this, I encourage you to go big. There’s nothing better than a scarf with tons of volume.
You could pile on more bangles and switch up the sandals too. You could really accessorize a basic romper in a thousand ways, but below I’ve compiled some items (and links) if you want to really emulate this look.
(Marc by Marc “Bella” scarf $198, Sam Edelman “gigi” sandals $59.95, H&M men’s straw hat $12.95, Ray-Ban Aviators $139)
I hope you guys try out a romper! They’re really comfortable and much easier to wear than you’d think. A great trend to try on a carefree summer day.
