A while back I voiced an opinion that I loved peplum shape on a hourglass figure, and I received more than one bewildered comment. It's funny, how so many women think they can't embrace this trend because of their wider hips. Well, I am the proof that it works. And I'm ready to spill my secrets.
As always. proportions are key. Subtle peplum in neutral color is the way to go (no oversized ruffles allowed). When it comes to hourglass figure, you can't beat the appeal of a great pencil skirt: there's hardly any piece of clothing that is more feminine and more appropriate for this shape. Even a subtle pattern (lace, small florals) works, if you stick to a neutral palette (black and grey work wonders together!). Tuck in a beige top, add a structured jacket to balance the outfit out, throw a pair of heels to the mix (there's nothing that will make your legs appear longer than a combination of pencil skirt and high heels!), and you're good to go!
Now tell me, have you embraced this trend? Are you planning to take your peplum from winter to spring? What is your favorite way to wear it?
