In my effort to beat the heat I have come to the realization that I cannot wear shorts everyday. For one, I don't own enough and for two, it gets quite boring. Therefore, I decided to again pull out my red jeans which will soon be in the Plato's Closet pile. I like jeans with a little stretch to them but these babies are beginning to stretch too much and will soon have the saggy-look. No bueno!!! I think I will wear them through the summer and then let them go. I purchased them from Forever 21, so I won't feel too bad for the loss. As far as the shirt is concerned, it is "my opinion" that the peplum(ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress) style can pretty much be worn by all body types as it is figure-flattering much like the iconic wrap dress. In the past, I have worn peplums on a dress and skirt but this is my first time wearing a shirt. While I like the shirt and it's Versace-ish print, a solid color would be my preference if I were to ever purchase another one in the future. As stated in my previous post about rompers, if you are looking to try an affordable taste of the trend, stores such as Marshalls and TJ Maxx offer cute, unique peplum shirts in a variety of patterns and colors. What do you guys think about peplums?
