It’s getting warmer each day as summer approaches but I was able to get one more wear out of this peplum top. I found this at Bebe and while Bebe is not necessarily top on my list of places to shop, the store actually carries clothing that fits petite frames. Peplum tops can be a little tricky but as long as they fit correctly, anyone can pull them off.
Some tips for wearing a peplum tops:
- No matter your frame, the hem of the peplum should hit just above the fullest part of the hip for optimal visual impact.
- Make sure that the peplum detail comes at the narrowest part of your waist; otherwise, a peplum can actually add inches to your waistline and can make you appear bigger.
- Also, if you are petite, a full peplum will add balance to your look, while curvier girls should opt for petite peplums with lesser flare.
This is my last week of my semester and I will be glad to have a break (even though it’s only for one week)!
