Every time I use the word “Peplum” now, all I can think about it is how my friend Romina thought I made it up. She’s never heard of it before, and among all her officemates, only one person said she knew what it meant! Truth be told, it is sort of a funny word. And the peplum detail on my outfit today is similarly sort of funny. Who would have thought that there would come a time where belts would grow fabric and change the entire silhouette of your look. I decided to do a play on cuts and lengths and paired the belt with a mullet dress. It’s a bit unconventional, which is why I totally love it.
Kept the look from going over the top by sticking to classic colors: Black, gold and tortoise. It also helped give my look a glamorous yet edgy feel.
I’m so glad that this dress comes with peek-a-boo cutouts on the shoulder because it added yet another dimension to my outfit! Surprise details are always a favorite of mine.
