STYLING A PEPLUM DRESS

STYLING A PEPLUM DRESS

A peplum dress features a feminine and flattering silhouette and has the potential for styling for many occasions. Its sophisticated design features a flared fabric over the waist area that is forgiving to any woman. Not exclusive to dresses, you can also indulge in the peplum trend through jackets, skirts and even trousers.

The navy blue peplum dress in this outfit is versatile enough to be worn to the office and evening wear. To get away from its potential corporate feel, I went for styling it with an overload of gold jewellery and a black faux fur coat to add a more dressy and luxury appeal. The beautiful blue suede peep toe heels finishes the look with a pop for a more dressy occasion. Whereas pairing it with pointed pumps and a blue blazer would have made it more office appropriate. It’s a look that’s a bit on the formal side but still has a sultry edge to it. Not only is this peplum dress outfit a great look for your Sunday best, a dinner party or an event, it is also another styling example of wearing blue and black together.

    This look is so chic. Well done for challenging yourself because you definitely made the outfit look more chic and fun rather than corporate. As you said, it would be perfect for a dinner party! I love the accessories and your coat in particular, but I also love your shoes. I pretty much love everything about this look! Happy new year!
