"The Peplum Top: You have two option: cigarette pants to offset the girlishness or a pencil skirt to sex it up. Either way, they have to balance out the flouncy volume."
Think sleek ladies! We think that skinny jeans will do just as well too.
Don't forget the statement necklace!
Here's Olivia Palermo carrying off the trend nicely.
Stylist Nicole Chavez says:
"Peplums can be incredibly flattering—if you get the proportion right! I have one rule for wearing them: make sure the peplum's flare starts at the thinnest part of the waist and ends at the hipbone. Since you have your top, let's focus on finding the right things to pair it with. Your peplum top already has volume and structure, so it's best to wear it with simple pieces that have clean lines. One option is to go for a pencil skirt; black or gray are obvious choices, but you should also consider brighter hues like bright green, turqoise or electric blue. Streamlined shorts would also work; a cute pale khaki pair, or you could go for a high-waisted style in blue or black. Pants are, of course, appropriate too, and would balance the peplum's feminine flair nicely. You can't go wrong with black skinnies, but any simple, slim style will work. One last thing to note: if you're trying to lengthen your body, make sure you opt for a monochromatic outfit. It's just more flattering!
Now that you know how to work the peplum, go wild with some of these!
