MY STYLE: PEPLUM TOPS

Happy Holidays, everyone! After a few fun-filled days of family, food, and gift giving, most of this chilly afternoon will be spent relaxing with the fella, binge watching House Hunters International (it’s a guilty pleasure), and bringing you one of my favourite fashion trends of the moment : Peplum Tops.

Peplums are a magical strips of fabric that are gathered and attached to the waist of a jacket, blouse, skirt, or dress. Why magical, you ask? No matter what your body type may be, peplums draw your eyes inward, giving the illusion of an hourglass shape. Bonus – they’re super comfy, so you get the shape without having to wear uncomfortable, constricting shapewear. Dressing up during the holidays is all about having fun and feeling fabulous, and peplums have you covered!

These sparkly numbers are a local find from Your Big Sister’s Closet in Toronto. The white one caught my eye immediately, reminding me of a fresh blanket of twinkling, white snow. I left with the white one,  the matching royal blue version, and a list of holiday parties I knew they would be perfect for. Which colour is your favourite?
