#OOTD A Peplum & A Pencil

Jacket: New Look | Peplum Top: New Look | Skirt: Primark | Necklace: Rock N Rose | Super Cosy Tights: Primark | Chelsea Boots: River Island

I've always been a bit wary about wearing a peplum with a skirt especially a skater, as i feel it's just too much volume, however i think i've found my perfect match. I just adore the way this basic peplum looks with a nipped in pencil skirt. I love the smart but casual vibe to this outfit, i think it'd be perfect dressed up with a pair of heels in the evening or coordinated with some navy converse or some classic black pumps for the daytime.

I have to say that usually, my style is a little more plain and maybe even a little immature but what i love about this is it's utterly grown up and sophisticated. However, i don't think it's too old or even too much; i feel it's bursting with personality and certainly isn't frumpy. I also think it's absolutely perfect for this time of year. While we're still in this transitioning weather, into Autumn, you can still rock the bare arms under a simple black blazer or even a leather jacket, but when the weather turns simply slip a black long sleeve top - my choice would be H&M - underneath and you won't notice the difference.

This is the perfect style of outfit to rock some statement jewellery with. If you're keeping everything fussy on the bottom half, why not try pairing something big and chunky, dainty but blingy or something extravagant and spiky with your plain top. Make sure it doesn't cover too much surface area, like my simple pendant chain, and doesn't take too much from the rest of your ensemble - remember, it's just to enhance!



  1. ooo I love this outfit! Pencil skirts don't suit me unfortunately :( Your figure looks amazing in this outfit! I really need to inject a little peplum into my wardrobe, but I find it a little scary :/
    Love Holly x

    p.s. do you have a blog button that I can pop in my sidebar? :)
