If you've perused any fashion mags lately, chances are you've noticed a number of rompers. Sartorial little siblings to the omnipresent spring jumpsuit, they're also vaguely reminiscent of the outfits mom put you in way back when. A stylish antidote to the summer minidress, the romper also happens to be both super-comfy and sexy.

Sass & Bide's oh-so-grown-up black silk and jersey version (left) features a sweetheart neckline, metal beading -- and a hefty price tag of $539.

That's why we love this little number from Velvet by Graham and Spencer. It's equally chic, but at $97 it's way cheaper. And unlike Sass & Bide's version, this one can be dressed up or down.



For a night out, forget the embellishment: Just add a couple pieces of statement jewelry and top it off with a cropped jacket and a pair of strappy sandals. Easy, elegant and so unlike that pink and blue number you used to watch cartoons in.
