First up in today's fashion review is a black v-neck ruffled romper, sold in sizes S-XL.

This simple, sleek black romper features half sleeves, an elastic waist, open plunging v-neck wrap front, flowy shorts bottom, and adorably feminine ruffled accents at the sleeves and hem. It also comes with a matching sash in the same silky-soft fabric, which can be worn either as a waist belt or a choker.

The design looks exactly as pictured on Romwe's site, and the piece is constructed from a soft, lightweight poly/cotton blend with a satin-smooth feel on the outside. I got it in size S, which can really fit a variety of sizes because of the loose silhouette and stretchy waistband. The only annoying thing about this romper is that there's no zipper and you have to pull the top over your shoulders, so I wouldn't recommend it if you have broader shoulders.

That being said, this romper is worth the price and super cute! The silky material adds an elegant look to it, while the ruffled accents give it a touch of uniqueness. It's the perfect loungewear-meets-evening-wear piece, and since the whole "lingerie-as-outerwear" trend is huge right now, it's definitely a style to look out for!

The second piece I got was a cropped beige satin bomber jacket, offered in S-L.

This long sleeve jacket is crafted from a super silky, soft fabric, like the romper but thicker and better quality. It's lined on the inside for added comfort, and features two front pockets, zipper closure, and white-and-green floral embroidery throughout, all on a golden-base satin base.

I own a lot of satin jackets, but so far they've all been regular length or had an oversized fit, so it was really refreshing to see this cropped style on Romwe's site! It's nicely cropped so that it pairs perfectly with skirts and dresses, but not too short, and can certainly be worn with a simple t-shirt-and-jeans look too.

The quality of this piece is awesome, and I can't find a single thing about it to be picky about. It's thick enough to provide some warmth and serves as a great jacket for spring or autumn, but still comfortable and lightweight. I got it in size S, and while I wouldn't mind if the sleeves were a bit longer, it fits great otherwise, and this is a piece I really would recommend to anyone!

Lastly is a sleeveless white lace romper, originally sold in S-XL but now sold out.

This romper boasts a super feminine, innocent, and delicate style, with a scalloped eyelash lace neckline, padded bust, back zip closure, and loose high-waisted shorts that nearly look like a skirt. The fabric is lightweight and has a good amount of stretch to it, so the size S could actually fit anywhere from XS to M.

Although I love the adorable look of this, there were some quality flaws. Firstly, the sheer lace neckline is uneven; one side is higher than the other, causing an asymmetric effect. Also, although the romper is partially lined at the bust and shorts, the lining is still a bit sheer. The bust is padded so it's not an issue, but I'd definitely suggest wearing nude-toned undergarments beneath the shorts.

It's too bad that there were quality issues, because this romper gives off such a sweet vibe, with a mix of cuteness and simplicity that makes it casual enough as a regular summer piece, yet spiced up with princess-y vibes. Overall I'm rather disappointed with this piece, and it's a shame that there were stitching and sheerness issues, because it's otherwise both cute and comfortable.

Overall

Although the white lace romper had some issues, the silky black romper and satin cropped bomber jacket were good pieces, so for Romwe it really depends what you order. I suggest ordering pieces with more product photos and higher quality photos, since I've observed from experience that those end up being a lot nicer in terms of quality and style accuracy.
