I don’t think peplum tops get enough credit. This fashion trend hit us big last spring and after seeing the S/S’ 13 collections during New York Fashion Week, it looks as though we have a peplution on our hands people and you’re either with the peplum or against it, but why against?
If you’re just about to board onto the color-blocking train or have been working your way to those train steps, it would be best if you throw yourself off now or let this one go by. Cause this trend, has gone into overkill territory like the florals all day everyday trend.
I of all people shouldn’t be saying such things, after all blocking those colors up down and all around has been a styling favorite of mine for years now. Years I say, so I know when it’s time to let go of something for awhile, just to make space for something new, the technicolor way of dressing.
Not being model height nor fitting into the petite category has some disadvantages, especially if you work in fashion. They don’t call it sample sale for nothing. This comes into play sometimes when I want to wear my favorite length in skirts and dresses, the midi. I don’t want to always wear a pair of flats or outrageously high heels or platforms with every midi dress or skirt I plan on wearing this summer. I did have this question pop up a couple of time already, and since it’s one I can relate to all to well, just wanted to share some options, and styling tips that may help those inquiring minds.
