PEPLUM POWER

peplum sweater

Remember last week’s post when I told you all that I’m a big believer that when you find a piece that you really, really love to buy it in every color? I definitely applied that rule with this peplum sweater. I found it while shopping with my mom at Scoop NYC (we actually came out of separate dressing rooms wearing the same one and there’s a selfie to prove it). I loved it so much that I bought it in all three colors. (The beige one is the perfect pairing with white jeans in the winter.) I’m always on the hunt for good basics that are simple enough that they can work for everyday-wear, but that also have a little something extra (i.e. a peplum) to keep it interesting. This sweater is exactly that. I can throw it on for work with jeans and flats or make it work for a night out by dressing it up with some statement jewels (a necklace or a colorful pair of earrings). Peplums are good at that – making something work from day-to-night. They add just the right dose of feminine flair without overpowering the look.
