An Ode to Peplum








Peplum top: Forever 21 (similar here and here)  |  Red jeans: H&M (similar here and here) |  Black D'orsay Pumps: Anne Klein (similar here) |  Necklace: Forever 21 (similar here)  |  Sunglasses: Tory Burch (similar here)


Oh, my sweet Peplum fair
From the waist you always flair
Some say your time has come and gone
But to them I say, "You are so, so wrong"
You give curves to the straight
You give the illusion of a tiny waist
You are feminine and sweet
You hide when I overeat
So even if your trendiness is at an end
I'll still wear you, my pleated friend

That's right, guys. I'm an amazing poet. If you couldn't tell from that ridiculous verse, I really love peplum. I've read a few articles that say that the peplum trend is almost over or that it is already dead. Personally, I think I will always love it. I'm sure I will keep wearing this cream peplum top until it falls apart. It's a top I put on that makes me instantly feel prettier.

Speaking of favorite tops, remember this striped one from this post? It's still available in other colors and right now it's 50% off! It's just $12.50. Such an amazing deal for such a high quality top. You can see it here. I may have bought it in two other colors... Okay, I definitely bought it in two other colors. It's the Nordstrom End-of-Summer Clearance Sale. Like with the anniversary sale, there are way too many things in my wishlist. Here's what I'm loving:

One last thing: did you see my trend report post? I shared some of the upcoming trends for fall and gave some tips for how to style them! Check it out here.

  2. I love me some peplum too. How adorable is your little poem?! I find it really annoying that I can't find more peplum in stores. Like if it's so "in" why is NO ONE selling it? Ok, maybe I'm being dramatic, but really, I feel like stores should be bursting with peplum tops because they are literally all I want to wear. Thanks for sharing a few options and have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I vote that peplum should be a staple. Like v neck tees or button up blouses. There should be at least one in every store! Have a great weekend too, Kiki!
