What's more cute or more comfy than a black romper, especially for girls who prefer to wear black and only black, in the hottest months of the year? The answer is obvious and it's "Nothing!" Britney Spears wore an adorable black romper with matching platforms, demonstrating that black in summer is a viable option, especially with rompers, which mimic dresses.
Plus, it's so insanely easy to copy her look when you want to keep cool without sacrificing any style or without having to resort to infusing bright colors into your wardrobe in order to align with the season and the climate. Look at Brit — still providing style inspo this deep into her storied career.
Brit just chopped off her hair into a shoulder-skimming lob with bangs, which is beyond chic, as opposed to a boring, "soccer mom of Sean Preston and Jayden James" style. Not only is her new cut way sexy, but it also allows her to keep cool when the temps rise, as they are about to do for several months.
The sexpot already accessorized her new lob with a wearable and comfortable jumper that showed off just enough cleavage and flattered her legs by elongating them. This look is so fun without any of the fuss. Go Brit Brit.
Cute, right? It suits her shape. And the optical illusion of longer legs is an added benefit.
