Ask Shopbop: How to Wear Peplums


Look 1: Tibi dress, Nicholas pumps, Clare Vivier clutch, Tom Binns earrings. Look 2: Rebecca Minkoff top, BLK DNM jeans, Edmundo Castillo pumps, and Iosselliani bracelets.

I love the peplum look this season. Do you have some tips for how to wear it?

Peplums have acquired a reputation for being difficult, but they are actually very flattering and easy to wear. Try one of these two approaches.

MODERN SWEET
A peplum dress is inherently sweet, so mix it up with a more architectural style rooted in sharp tailoring. This dress from Tibi feels distinctly more modern. Pair it with edgy black Nicholas pumps, clean jewelry, and a contemporary floral clutch.

UNEXPECTED EDGE
A Rebecca Minkoff peplum top, cut in sleek black leather, takes the peplum trend in a fresh new direction. When paired with high-waisted black jeans and dark accessories, the look feels more edgy than sweet. During the day, add a tweed jacket, and for the evening, keep it casual with a sharp blazer.
