Have you tried on a top or dress with a peplum? I wasn’t sold on them until I found this fun pink one at Forever 21. It made me feel instantly fun. Do you have any clothing with that immediate effect? I think the key for me is layering them with fitted skirts that accentuate my waist. If I put this top on with jeans it makes my torso look super short, which isn’t flattering. Not all peplums are created equal!
In addition to mixing colors and prints, I love playing with different styles in the same outfit. The pencil skirt is timeless, the top is flirty and feminine, and the jewelry is edgy. Sometimes I find the things that don’t seem to go together actually go together the best!
