I’ll admit it: I’ve never been a huge fan of peplum on myself. Even though I admire its place in fashion history, from the 1940s (pre and post WWII is a great era for fashion) and its revival in the 2010s, I haven’t made the effort to properly delve into it and try it out. I’m not exactly sure why this happened, but all I know is that when I laid eyes on this gorgeous skirt by Sway Chic, I knew it had to be mine due to the revamping of the traditional peplum shape (a more of a two-piece flare rather than an all-around tier) as well as the undeniably cool silver rivet detailing. I always love a good re-imagining of an already established fashion staple.
I paired it with a black crop tank with almost psychedelic-like rainbow stripes for an interesting contrast and last but not least, single strap sandals for a touch of simple sophistication, because my skirt and top are already making quite the statement. And just for fun, I’m wearing Essie’s Mint Candy Apple on my toes for a subtle bright pop of color.
