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!
