While peplum slowly took over the world years ago, i am sure you will agree with me it is a wardrobe staple today, and i am sharing three versatile ways to wear it. Who knew a top with a little flare at the bottom can be so stylish. I love this particularly peplum top by Bella D because of -
1. Its beautiful, rich, bold floral prints.
2. The darts that help give it a lovely three dimensional shape in the middle of the top which makes it so flattering.
3. Its asymmetrical hemline.
LOOK #1: MAKE IT LONG AND FLARED
Styled with a pair of black wide leg pants couldn't be more safe. It is very chic, easy and quick to put together. I can swing it from a formal look to a lunch date, and even straight to a more subdued evening look in one day. While i did opt for a pair of silver pumps i believe a pair of open toe heels with fresh pedicured nails will be just as perfect.

Let's be honest, short is in and it will always be, but what if it is flared too? The beauty of pairing a peplum top with a skater skirt is the fact that you can achieve two great looks from it- The top can either be tucked into the skirt or left out to layer over it, giving it a double flared layered look. I also do enjoy mixing prints so i went all out for this look. I would wear this to any kind of date, the movies, dinner, meetings, garden parties, name it, it works.
I tucked in the peplum here......
Then layered it over the skirt and it somehow looks like a dress....

LOOK #3: MAKE IT STRAIGHT
I have always liked the idea of a peplum top styled with a pair of straight denim pants. Probably even with a pair of distressed knee cap jeans. In my case, i am styling it with a pair of white denim pants but then i put a little spin on it by throwing on a denim jacket for those chilly evenings. I believe it dresses it down without it all looking down with the help of a pair of open toe heels.
I will admit this is the most slimming look of all three.
