Latest Look I'm Loving.....Peplum

There are so many fantastic things to love about fashion.  Maybe that's why so many of us are style-obsessed.  One of those things is the way there is always something new to love, covet and style, to make the look your own.  The latest one for me is....peplum.  The perfect amount of tuck and flair come together, drawing in the natural waist and accentuating the hips.  So demure and ladylike, this look can carry you anywhere from casual to couture.  The fashion world is embracing this trend with fervor.  Here are some of the pieces and looks that have me feeling inspired. 

Let's take a peek...




Peplum top in fresco floral sateen




J Crew's take on the trend, floral patterned peplum in richly saturated hues that pair perfectly with jewel-toned accessories like this amazing necklace (I think I may have to get this one!) and adorable blue suede ballet flats. 








Anthropologie gets it right with their peplum ponte tank.  I love the addition of the brown leather belt and two necklace choices.  They add a Native American vibe to this traditionally polished style making it perfect for a casual day on the go.  I also love the way it's been cleverly matched with the tone on tone blue cords. 







This swingy top is casual and comfy.



Loving this cute and oh so casual take on peplum.  Incorporating stripes keeps the look easy and very mix and matchable, especially for summer.   You could easily pair this one with dark denim like you see here, adding a pair of yellow flats and a gold pendant chain.  Shorts in bright green or pink melon would also be fun!






Silk Peplum Top



 J Crew's little sister, Madewell, hits the mark with their silk peplum top.  The three-quarter length sleeve is perfect for wearing under a chic blazer or cozy cardi.  The pin- tuck detailing on the front is a nice addition that perfectly compliments the total look.




So there's a look a just a few reasons why I'm currently loving peplum.  You'll likely notice that this look is popping up everywhere from sidewalk to runway.  If you have been wearing it as one of your everyday favorites, please send chic Saturday a photo or two.  Love to see it and maybe even feature you here!

Thanks for reading and happy Thursday!
