Those of you who know me (and really, who else is reading this blog?) know that I am obsessed with peplum. I have no waist. I have a flat belly (thank you pilates) but I am deeply envious of coke bottle women with banging curves. This is so not me.
Thankfully, about 2 years ago I discovered peplum aka the best cut ever. Peplum tops, peplum dresses, I don't care, I rock them and I LOVE that they give me the illusion of a waist. Also that they make me feel twirly. And fancy. Two things I pretty much can't get enough of.
Here's a collage of some of my most favorite peplum looks, please note how much more like a 50's pin up I look like than when I wear my preferred style of drapey racerback.
And here is where I take peplum to the next level—by pairing it with a comfy pair of wedges and denim cutoff shorts. Perfect for hopping around in the country and pretending you have a waistline. Also hopping onto unstable barbed wire lined fences. And looking like a bombshell while doing it.
