I've recently developed a closet craving that includes leather leggings, oxblood pieces, faux fur vests and my absolute favorite: peplums styles! The short flared strip of fabric adds a fun and feminine twist to any outfit. My favorite part? It nips at the waist and hides your tummy, creating the illusion of a perfect hour glass frame! Everything from tops, dresses and even jackets have undergone a peplum makeover this season and I honestly can't see this trend going out of fashion anytime soon.

This retro-inspired style actually dates back to the 1940s. The classic, ladylike peplum is not only super-flattering but quite versatile. You can easily take this look from day to night, and believe me when I say, every woman can pull off this style!

Because the peplum is so voluminous, the key to getting this look right is pairing it with sleek and streamlined pieces, like I did here with this printed peplum top and faux leather leggings. It helps keep your outfit from looking too overwhelming. Check out a few of my favorite peplum pieces below along with some tips on how to work it!

You can easily dress a peplum dress up or down. But if you’re going for something a little more sophisticated, opt for a knee length style like this one. Glam it up with a chic hard-case clutch, dangling earrings and some sky-high pumps.
