If you have been reading the blog recently, you know I cannot get enough of he peplum style. To me, it inhibits a feminine silhouette and enough frilly details to make you feel girly but also put together. Most body types can wear it in one way or another, and it’s fun to pair it with different styles. I wanted to show you this style with the classic pencil skirt, because sometimes people get stuck in a rut with this style.
It’s okay to not have the skirt be business-like, what you want is to get creative with it! You don’t always have to tuck in a shirt with a high-rise skirt, and the peplum is a perfect example on how. I like a great fitting skirt that is high rise enough so that it flatters. You don’t want it to hit too low and you want it to hug your curves so that it stays in place. Throw on a peplum, and you don’t have to worry about a shirt staying tucked in and you will feel more confident in that snug fitting pencil skirt as well. This shirt is a little crazy with the ruffles, so you can also try something a little more toned down but with the same concept. As for finding the perfect pencil skirt, I have always been true to the J.Crew ones because of the length, the room in the butt, and they always get high enough. I need it to be well-made enough to not be straight throughout because then I run into the waist being too big, or it just being baggy. The point in this look is to have the pencil skirt fit snug enough and sit right at, or below the knee. Try it out for yourself, you will definitely feel free and comfortable enough to love it!
