I have been loving the onslaught of peplum styles as of late. Especially after reading the new Matchbook last night and seeing the outfit below left in their pages! The tight waist, flared hip cut can be super flattering on a bevy of shapes- defining a waist on a curvier body or adding some shape to a straight figure. Found on tops (my fave), jackets, dresses and skirts (least fave)- I prefer the more subtle versions rather than the Judy Jetson look of the more defined and severe ones.  See some variety of the style below (and click on the images for their sources)

Here are two outfits I put together using the trend- one more funky and casual and the other proper and pretty (and a mini-peplum for those nervous to try the look)- both topped with a classic black tuxedo blazer, of course. :)
