The peplum trend is growing in popularity, and this feminine style accent can make any outfit a little dressier. If you’re thinking about wearing peplum dresses or tops, there are some rules to keep in mind so that peplum will compliment your petite frame.
Take a look at a few petite fashion blogs like Stylish Petite to get ideas for how to add accessories to your outfit. If you’re wearing a peplum top, a chunky necklace or bangles are a great way to add texture to your outfit. You can also keep it simple by adding a watch or stud earrings to your look, which is ideal if you’re wearing a peplum top to the office.
For peplum shirts, pair the top with skinny jeans or leather tights that can be worn as pants. The bottom half of your outfit should be fitted to add balance to your look. Stay away from wide-leg pants or pants that have too much space in the leg so that your figure won’t be “swallowed” in too much fabric.
For a peplum dress, choose one with a round or square neck, so you can bring attention to your neck and shoulders and make your frame appear longer. A pair of classic black heels are ideal for adding the final touch to the outfit.
If you’re wearing a solid color peplum top or dress, you can also spice up the outfit with a patterned shoe. For black or brown peplum, pair it with leopard flats or heels and a coordinating bag for a look that is polished and stylish. You can also finish your look with an up-do to bring more attention to the peplum detail.
