This particular top is from a Boutique called Ivy & Leo. They have lots of cute stuff so make sure to check them out!

Peplums are one of those styles that work for everyone, no matter your body type! They give you a beautiful silhouette, slim your waist as well as show off your curves! Win Win Win, if you ask me!

They have been popular for quite a few years now and I totally understand why with their ability to look flattering on anyone and the fact that you can dress it up or down, with a dress, a sweater, a t-shirt, and the list goes on. 

It is also a look that is easily achieved on your own! If you do not own one that is okay, because you can create this look by adding a belt to a flowy or semi flowy shirt and voila! 

We here at The Smitten Life are always advocates of a style that you can pair with LOTS! As you can see here we are a big fan of the loose long tunic style peplum. If you are looking for comfort and cute then this is a good direction to go, however we also love pairing them with skirts or even wearing them over a fitted dress to add a little something to something we already own.

If you haven't tried this style before, or have tried it once and were not sure about it, give it another try because remember there are many versions of the peplum out there. If you tried on the shorter version and didn't like how it sat on your waistline then go and try a longer one like we have here or pair that same shirt with a skirt or dress and see how it completely changes the look. If you have some holiday parties coming up then go try a peplum dress on, I am sure it will make you feel oh so pretty with it's feminine charm!

Below I have linked a few of my favorites out there right now as well as some of the different styles. Let us know what you think!

And as Always,
