Smash + Tess Audrey Romper

Let’s be honest, sweats and rompers have become style staples since we’ve spent more time at home. But a return to regular routines that take us beyond the couch, doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice those comfy clothes. The great thing about Smash+Tess is that with a few accessories, you can style your favourite romper for any occasion. Take the new Audrey romper, for example. The long sleeves and 60s-style mock neck make this a fall must-have item, and the lightweight rayon, cotton, and bamboo blend make this piece versatile for the unpredictable weather that autumn has in store. Add a belt, heels, and a cute leather jacket and you’re ready to hit the town! From cozy on the couch to chic in the city, this romper’s got you covered.
