A Dance with Peplum

2 Sep

Over the weekend, I took my Urban Outfitters peplum blazer for a test spin. It’s the same one that Chloe and  AlterationsNeeded wrote about, but in a different pattern.

I’ve always wanted a peplum jacket because it’s figure flattering and it mimics the body’s natural curves. It’s an unlined knit jacket that has a bit of stretch. The buttons were loosely attached so I re-attached them because I like a sturdy set of buttons. The casual gingham pattern seems stands out more than the herringbone one. And though it’s a little unusual, I like it.

I think the blazer works best with high-waisted bottoms, but since I don’t own any (aside from mom shorts), I improvised with my straight leg jeans.

Outfit Details: Urban Outfitters peplum blazer – XS, Forever 21 tube top – XS, GapKids Super Skinny Jeans -12R, American Eagle belt, Free People watch pendant, Forever 21 boot

    I like this print on you! I also have those same jeans in the medium blue wash. The fit is not perfect all around but I was happy with them. Did they shrink on you after washing?

      I like the GAPkids jeans and they didn’t shrink. Then again, I don’t put it in the dryer, I just let it air dry.

    I really like the jacket on you, I am not the biggest fan of this particular kind of gingham pattern but I think on you it looks simple but sophisticated? Did you happen to get some pictures of the back? In Kelly’s post she posed some pictures of the back and I think it’s just gorgeous. I am so close to pulling the trigger on this jacket and I think I am going to get the pattern you got. Thanks for the review.

      Thanks! I don’t have photos of the back yet, but I’ll put them up when I have a chance. =)

    I feel stupid but for some reason I always thought peplum was a type of fabric 😛 But now I know better! I think this print stands out more and it really does seem more “you” than the lighter herringbone.

      Ohh! I can’t wait to see your review! I love the fit and it has a nice stretch to it too.
