The Peplum

I used to write a blog called Cute, Smart and Organized that was aimed at reminding you just how amazing you already are. The following is a post from that blog.


Are you thinking about rockin' a peplum this Easter? 

Don't be afraid of that ruffle around the tummy!  :)  Used strategically, a peplum can actually hide your flaws and give the illusion of slimmer legs and torso.  Here are a few tips for getting the most out of this fashion statement:

Keep a slim line from the waist down  You don't want any extra fullness below the ruffle.  Choose a pencil skirt or slim-profile pants.

Feel free to cover your arms with a jacket, just be sure the length of the jacket hits at a flattering line with the peplum.

Choose a few classic accessories.  Remember, the peplum is an accessory in and of itself, but be sure to highlight your face with a well-chosen necklace and earrings.

You're going to look great!
