Peplums made a splash on the spring runways and are now making the transition into the autumn. Since this geometric style plays-up a woman’s curves, it is an excellent look for virtually every body type. Amp up your girlish side with fall’s peplum garments in cozy fabrics, jewel tones or saturated neutrals.
There are two peplum garments that should become staples in your autumn wardrobe: the peplum jacket and the long-sleeved peplum top. These three items will easily pair with other wardrobe stable, injecting a new silhouette into the wardrobe you already love. With the right combinations, you’ll find yourself taking the peplum trend from day to night, from the office all the way to your off hours.
Look for a peplum jacket that feels special. This feminine silhouette works well in luxe fabrics, like velvet! The touch of sheen makes the look sophisticated and gives it just a bit of edge. A velvet peplum jacket can easily go from office to evening. Purchase a jacket in a deep neutral color, such as a black or chocolate brown. Pair with your favorite blouse, straight-leg trousers, pumps and simple, sophisticated jewelry for a look appropriate for the boardroom. After hours, switch out your blouse for a top with a bit of sequins or shine. Pair with dark-wash, slim-fitting jeans and metallic shoes for an edgy, night-out look.
Accessories add the perfect touch! Studded earrings, a simple pendant necklace or a string of pearls help complete the look. Choose jewelry that reflects your personality to make the look truly you. Strut your stuff this fall like the fashionista you are!
