Romwe Fashion Review: Choker Crop Top + 2-Piece Swim Set

It's been a little under a month, but I'm back today with latest Romwe order, containing an American Apparel-inspired black long sleeve choker crop top and a 2-piece cutout paneled swim set. As always, you can find all the full details after the jump!

The first item I got was a black long sleeve choker crop top, sold in sizes S-XL.

This black crop top is a style dupe of the popular American Apparel choker top, but the fit is reversed instead. That being said, you can easily wear this top both ways for two different looks!

The sizing of this top is accurate to Romwe's measurements, which unfortunately meant that it was way too loose on me. Compared to the actual American Apparel top, this Romwe top has a much bigger fit, a slightly thinner choker, and shorter sleeves. As long as you go by the measurements provided on the product page you should be fine, but I really wish Romwe carried this top in smaller sizes, since the S fits more like an M or L.

Style-wise, this is a super versatile top, and since chokers have recently come back in style, it's a great way to get the look of a choker necklace that's built right into a top. The fabric is a thin polyester, with a lot of stretch and a comfortable fit. Overall a great style, but it sadly just did not fit me well.

The second piece I picked out was 2-piece cutout swim set, offered in sizes S-L.

This all-black swim set includes a zip-up cap-sleeve rash guard-style top and matching bikini bottoms with cutout accents at the sides. Some of the holes weren't completely cut off when I received it, so I had to cut them off myself.

The top is padded for ease of wear, and the material is stretchy and form-fitting for a flattering look. The style is simple yet unusual, and it's a great set to wear as is to the beach, though you could also style the top as a jacket/vest over a different swimsuit.

In terms of style, fit, and look, this 2-piece set is 100% as described on Romwe's site, and the quality surpasses my expectations for the price. I do think the craftsmanship on the cutout panels could've been improved, but otherwise I'm quite satisfied with this swim set.

Overall

I had mixed feelings about the pieces in this order; while the 2-piece swim set was nearly flawless and super flattering, the choker crop top just didn't fit me the way I'd wanted it to. But with both pieces, the material and fit was accurately described in the product information page, so I'd say that if you're ordering from Romwe, be sure to look at the product description!
