Dress it Up: The Peplum Jacket
With a flattering shape and feminine flair, the peplum jacket is a necessary addition to your spring wardrobe. It is easily tossed on to give any outfit an extra boost. Here we consider two ways to dress up the peplum jacket – Victorian Geometric and Floral Fantastic!
For the Victorian Geometric, begin with a pair of high waist neutral pants and tuck in a ruffled button down shirt that will perfectly peek out beneath the jacket. To ensure you don’t look like a gentleman from the Jane Austen movies – add geometric and bold accessories to keep it modern.
For the Floral Fantastic, slip on a floral print shift dress and layer the jacket over – worn loose and open or buttoned up with a belt cinching at the waist. A twisted choker necklace flirts at the neckline and nude accessories let the dress shine!
Find your own Peplum Jacket at Urban Oufitters, ShopBop, or Spiegel, or go on a treasure hunt at your local vintage or thrift store. For Orange County, CA residents Macalistaire Vintage and Elsewhere Vintage are great places to start.
