Look We Love: Peplum and Pastel

If there's one thing we love, and love to talk about, it's wardrobe pieces that flatter the body type.  Better yet, pieces that flatter just about any body type you can think of.

Enter one of our favorite stars of body transforming silhouettes:  peplum.  It's a timeless, season-less style that keeps a woman looking like a woman for all the right reasons.  Here's how:  peplum tops gently nip in a the waist and flare out just below the nipping, giving the illusion of an hourglass shape.  And where it truly shines?  It works double duty... if you have a boyish figure, it'll instantly add curve.  If you already have a curvy figure, it will gently play off your curves, accentuating them while narrowing your waist, making you even more bombshell.

Trust us.  It works wonders!  And we love the way this outfit was put together for the end of summer, by mixing a gorgeous pastel mint peplum top over some white cropped jeans.  The genius behind this look, though, is in the smaller details.  The ankle strap sandals keep the pants from cutting off the look of the leg by continuing the line down the legs into the feet, helping to make the legs look longer.  And that turquoise bag?  A beautiful way to really draw out the pale mint hues of the top and tie the look together!

All in all, the peplum top is a must!  What do you think?
