Peplum

When I think of peplum I think of feminine, flounce, and a ladylike appearance. In fact, several of my suit jackets are this style and it gives the suit more of an edgy, feminine flare to it. Obviously that style isn’t appropriate in all business settings, but if the culture of your company or organization allows, I highly recommend it.

I feel like peplum style has been seen more and more over the last several years and I like it! I used to be very against this shape and felt it brought to much attention to my hips, but in fact a well placed pouf can hide wide hips and accentuate or create the illusion of a tiny waist. Just remember, whatever is below the flounce should be streamlined. There is no need for a peplum top and wide leg trousers, it just doesn’t give you good shape!

The Look

I came across this tank at Target and immediately knew it was a good transition piece. It’s light and airy and not too bright and colorful like what we are starting to see for summer colors and patterns. The embroidery across the chest and torso is delicate and a feminine blush color.

Here I paired the tank with black skinny jeans and neutral wedges and handbag. I would have loved to find some blush or light pink skinny jeans because that would have given it any even nicer spring feel.

Adding neutral accessories make this tank the focus of the look. Plus it’s the season for neutrals…hello spring! 🙂 My favorite spring neutrals are a creamy off-white and pale pale blush.

Do you own any peplum? What are your feelings about it? Love? Hate? Indifferent?

Until next post…xoxo Becca
