To Wear A Peplum This Fall

After two seasons of dominating the runway and fast-fashion shops alike, there's really no way to ignore the peplum this fall. While ridiculously flattering (seriously, they make you look like Jessica Rabbit—va va voom!), the logistics of actually wearing one can be daunting. Here are seven super-cute ways to rock the trend.

1. With sleek trousers for work.
How chic is she? Try out a tailored peplum top like this one with a pair of sleek trousers for fall. Both wide-leg and slim cropped pants would work, so wear whatever you feel best flatters your shape. I love this ultra-bright color combo, but if your office is more conservative, try neutral trousers with a burgundy or indigo top—two hot colors for fall.

2. Paired with distressed denim on the weekend.
Try wearing a fitted peplum blouse over distressed denim and pointy heels for a fresh take on the ubiquitous tank/jeans/heels combo every other girl will be sporting on a night out. This outfit is just as effortless as its done-to-death cousin, but will set you apart from the herd.

3. Wear your peplum top with a pencil skirt.
Get the most bang for your buck by wearing the same peplum top with a fitted pencil skirt. Play with different color and pattern combinations depending on what your plans are. If you're heading in to work, opt for a skirt in the same, or similar color as your blouse. Going out? Try a zany print (bonus points if your top is also a fun print!). For date night, go with a sexy, fitted mini-skirt—but be sure you've got a good balance of bare arms and bare legs. Don't give too much away!

4. With sandals and shorts for Sunday brunch.
How cute is this? I love how the fashion-forward top makes the rest of her outfit look instantly polished. I could see this working equally well with cutoffs and sneakers for brunch and shopping with your lady friends. To be honest, there's really nothing you couldn't wear a peplum top with.
