A work-appropriate look you can get excited about.
I’ve been a fan of peplums for years, so it’s been exciting to see so many different tops, blazers, skirts and dresses with peplums this year – a trend that will continue into Spring 2013.
What’s so great about a peplum? The combination of a fitted top with a flare at the waist is feminine, elegant and flattering for a lot of different figures. A peplum can either accentuate an hourglass shape on a woman with a curvy figure or create an hourglass shape on a women with a more athletic frame.

Additional benefits of peplum tops: they are designed to be worn untucked (an issue that was addressed in yesterday’s Commandress post) and they are generally very comfortable to wear.
Here are some of my current favorites:
