Peplum and skinny jeans...

I think bloggers like to think that they are above such trivial things such as trends but for all my snobbery, I fell head over heels for peplums. This particular peplum top is from Matalan and although I have been desperate to wear it, I have found it difficult to style without looking as wide as I am tall but I figured black slim cut trousers will always work with a more oversized silhouette!

Top: Matalan, trousers: Monki, shoes: Office, necklace: Miss Selfridge
Since having my hair cut it has been so much easier to style and I love being able to get so much volume at my roots- I definitely want to try a faux quiff soon...


You know how much I love bouclĂ©  and tweed and this top is a gorgeous mint green threaded through with black. I love the little cap sleeves and the material is so soft, paired with my velvet skinny jeans, this was definitely one of the most comfortable outfits I have worn to work!


I have to admit, I am still not entirely convinced by the extra material in the hem of this top but hopefully a slight optical illusion with my favourite heels helped to distract the eye ;)


Have you embraced the peplum yet? What is your guilty trend secret?

I love this top! I really like peplums too, but my hips refuse to allow me to wear them. You've styled it perfectly! As ever, I really love the owl in the background too!xx

Maria you look gorgeous here & honestly, the silhouette suits you perfectly! Love those jeans too, I love classic pieces like this when they're given a little twist with a slightly unusual fabric.

I have only just discovered the peplum love (late to the party as usual) as I was convinced it wouldn't do anything for me. I nearly did a dance in the changing rooms when I realised it totally DOES make your waist look smaller. Clever little peplum.

I have a peplum top I've never worn, I just can't get my head around it, but then again I think they look great on other people! x

I love this top. I still haven't branched out into peplums, although being such a dress person I rarely wear tops! x
