Day 2 of pencil skirt week and I went a little more subdued with the colors, but dark colors don't have to read drab or boring, especially if it involves pattern or shape. I found this little peplum tee at H&M during my after Christmas shopping venture and I have to say, I am all for this peplum trend. I might have to add another one or two tops to my closet. It will make you want to shimmy all day just to see it move and I am all for something that will have me looking like I some semblance of a curvier shape. Although I wasn't crazy about having to layer, it is a necessary evil until that warm weather hits and I can re-create this look I saw in Glamour magazine on my way home:
(excuse the crease, I was that excited to remember the page because I am totally in love with that look on the left)
Are you a fan of the peplum (whether it be on a top, skirt or dress)? Do you like to use clothes to alter your body shape (i.e. pleated skirt to give you the look of fuller hips, belts to create a more defined waist)?
Black peplum tee- H&M (similar in a sleeveless style here, similar here in limited sizes, plus-size here, longer sleeve here)
Sheer gray turtleneck- (old consignment find) Banana Republic
Polka dot tights- Madewell (pretty much the same here)
Burgundy hat- Albertus Swanepoel for J. Crew (similar here on sale)
Black buckle boots- (old) Dolce Vita for Target
