pretty peplum.

Top: The Emperors Closet; Pants: Banana Republic; Shoes: DSW; Layered Necklace: White House Black Market & Express

I’ve been seeing peplum dresses, skirts, and tops pop up just about everywhere – but I was skeptical as to why anyone would want to add an extra layer of flouncy fabric around their hips. I bought this top, which is a slight variation on the classic shape, a couple of weeks ago at The Emperors Closet in the Short Noth and it’s since made me change my stance. When balanced properly, like with a fitted skirt or pant, an understated ruffle creates a surprisingly sleek silhouette.
