Peplum Please

Peplum was a huge trend a few years ago and I couldn’t be happier to see it coming back on the high street. The great thing about peplum is that it makes girls like me with a bony structure appear wider in the waist. And to my girls that want the opposite look – i.e. slimmer in the waist – try the oversized peplum!

The one I’m wearing in today’s outfit is special to me because I actually made it myself! Yup, I know how to sew (grandma vibes). I had a vague idea when I was a kid that I’d study fashion design (I have two degrees in civil engineering and work in construction claims and litigation consulting now, so my 15 year old self will be disappointed lol). So my mom taught me the basics of sewing and I ended up getting pretty good at it! I quite like the fit of this one and the tie dye print makes it perfect for the summer. Trust me to find a neutral tie dye fabric 😐

I’ve linked my favorite peplum pieces that are on sale right now so check them out!
