Layering With Peplum
INC top (old)
H&M leather peplum top in black (It's about one size too big. But as it turns out, it's much easier to layer with the extra room.)

One of my favorite buys of this year is my H&M peplum leather top. I love anything that's leather, so I felt as though I "needed" this top. It's also peplum, which I also really like. Peplum has to be one of my favorite trends of the year. Although I don't like to strictly follow the trends, it's hard not to get pulled in by such an adorably feminine silhouette. I thought I should also point out that peplum and leather will never go out of style. They may have their moments of fashion "don'ts" but don't be afraid to splurge in a leather or peplum piece (or both!) this year. I happen to have a few vintage peplum dresses. And I also have a vintage peplum leather dress. So that goes to show you that in fashion, what goes around most certainly comes around...again and again. I love that fashion always "recycles" its trends.
Anyway, I thought I'd show you guys a fun way to wear this peplum top. You may not have this exact top, but there are many like this available in pretty much any clothing store. If you're not okay with wearing leather, there are other alternatives like faux leather or maybe even sequin and jersey. You can wear your peplum top year round! All you have to do is treat it like a vest when it starts to get cooler. It was raining for most of the day and it was a bit chilly. It was around 55 degrees F when these pictures where taken. And as you can see, I'm not wearing a sweater. The leather kept me nice and warm :)
Hope you guys had a great weekend! I can't wait to share my weekend photos with you all.
