From dresses to skirts, tops and blazers, peplums are popping up everywhere. It’s fun, flirty, and feminine and I love how it creates a flattering hourglass silhouette to your body. Peplums can be tricky to pull off successfully, as it’s all in the overall balance of your outfit. Wearing peplum on top should be balanced with tapered pants or jeans; as a skirt, pair it with a fitting, tucked in top to ensure a sophisticated, sleek look. Subtle or exaggerated, I am lusting after these ruffled flounces in a way that’s both bold yet demure.
