Black Halo turn their Jackie O dress into a romper suit

Black_halo_jackie_o

Remember Black Halo’s Jackie O dress? It was our Dress of the Day on March 25th, and even now The Fashion Police still think fondly of its gorgeous, slim fitting style and Mouret-esque tailoring.  So when we heard that the label had turned the dress into a romper suit, we just didn’t know what to think. Of course, in very general terms, the words "romper suit" are almost guaranteed to terrify us, making is think instantly of the horrifying ‘Dress Like a Toddler Trend’ and the tendency of some grown women to dress like three year olds.

This romper suit, however, definitely doesn’t look like something you’d catch a toddler wearing, and while it hasn’t really failed to win us over, we’re thinking that may have more to do with the mystifying metallic sheen of the material, than the actual suit itself. In black or navy, we may even admit to quite liking it.

What do you think? Do you love this romper style?

    I think this is quite nice, although I’d prefer the shorts to be longer.
    Oh and just to let you know, ASOS were obviously very proud of their harem all in one, as they decided to make another one, with an even baggier crotch!:
