top - h&m, skirt - mango, ring - vintage, shoes - schuh
I am not usually one for advice giving. I don't have nearly enough knowledge for that. But in the interests of science (and fashion, obviously!) I spent at least half an hour this morning trying to work out what on earth works with a peplum top, so now you don't have to!
FYI it's a yes to pencil skirts, trousers that are narrow on your hips and high waisted shorts, and a no to baggy trousers, a-line skirts, maxi skirts unless you have legs that go on for ever and leggings, but then I always think it's a no to leggings as trousers, regardless of the top!
I saw this top on a blogger a while ago (I can't remember which one, but they were Swedish, obviously) and couldn't stop thinking about it to the point where I had to track it down in H&M. It was crumpled in the store, and is probably designed for a longer torso than mine, but never the less I bought it, before realising I had nothing that really went with a peplum. Hence the massive trying on session.
Have you embraced the peplum, or is it a trend that I'm going to regret in about a month?!
