The peplum craze continues! I hope this cut never goes out of style because it is slowly but surely taking over my closet…in a good way! I just love how a good peplum top can effortlessly spruce up a casual outfit, yet can look sharp enough for some chic bottoms. If you need examples of this, look back through these posts: Denim on Denim, If the Pants Fit, When Life Gives you Lemons and Check That. Otherwise, check out my new Mesh Peplum Top from lulu*s!
I was immediately attracted to this top because of the dual textures. Why buy a plain ivory top, when you can buy one mixed with some mesh?! Right off the bat I pictured it with a pair of blue or colored denim. But before I went down that road, I decided to turn it up a notch with a skirt! Maxi skirts can be very flattering garments – slimming and elongating with the right pair of shoes. This is especially true when you come across one with a slit. Hence the reason I was so excited to find the Maxi-mum Power Dusty Rose Maxi Skirt. This pretty is also available in black – a wardrobe staple if you ask me. Although a regular nude wedge would have worked, I paired this skirt with my favorite cognac gladiator sandals. The reason I suggest nude or skin tone is because white, for example, might “cut off” your legs in an unflattering fashion. When you are wearing a long garment like a maxi skirt, that is the last thing you want to do. A skin tone shoe on the other hand, creates length. Anyway, I polished off the look with cream and gold jewelry, and threw on a hat for a relaxed look. Don’t be surprised if you see this top pop up again on KK and GG in the next couple of weeks.
