1 Piece, 2 Ways: How To Wear A Peplum Skirt

1_PeplumWeb
We all have days when a fitted dress or skinny jeans don't quite...fit. In those I'd-rather-be-in-a-sweatshirt moments, I turn to peplum.

I already own a few peplum pieces, but have been on the hunt for a skirt since last season. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found this designer red skirt at T.J.Maxx for half of what I would spend at a department store.
I work in River North, Chicago's gallery district that's inundated with creative and business types. So for an outfit that's chic and professional, I'm going monochromatic and wearing a pink blouse and a coral handbag. When it comes to mixing and matching brights, pairing pieces in the same color family is a simple rule that'll make your ensemble look instantly in sync.

Today, I'm headed to a casual restaurant in River North called Hub 51, so to play down the dressiness I'm pairing the peplum skirt with a striped T-shirt. Any patterned shirt would work in this situation but I like that the stripes lend a nautical vibe.
Since the skirt is already such a statement piece, I'm keeping my accessories to a minimum with just a few bracelets and a chunky gold necklace. Finally, here's just one more must-have for your spring accessory list: a gold tote. The one I'm wearing here is easy to carry around and matches with my accessories perfectly.
