Lookbook: How To Get Instant Peplum Effcet In Any Outfit

Asos leather peplum belt, ASOS gold and leather belt, ASOS peplum belt
The answer is - a wide, contoured belt with a little flair on the sides. I have to say that I didn't get on to peplum train (even when the trend was red hot last year) and I don't have any peplum style top/skirt/dress, but his ASOS faux leather peplum belt had me excited at the first viewing! I immediately mind-inventoried my pencil skirts and plain black dresses that could get a makeover via this edgy little belt. This belt can uplift any look and glamorize the every day casual dress/skirt. Exhibit A - This shell is from Walmart (yes, for $9!!) and the skirt is from Old Navy that I scored for just $8 - but with wide cuff high heel sandals and this chic belt, this outfit instantly becomes much more polished and looks expensive! Don't you think so?
Belt - ASOS
Shell - Walmart (old)
Skirt - Old Navy
Shoes - GoJane,

This leather handbag from Cuore & Pelle is fast becoming my go-to bag! It has two looks (sides out like a trapezoid bag (very Celine like)  or ends-tucked-in in a rectangle like above (reminds of the Grace Kelly style of top-handle bags)  and the black and white colors work for most outfits!
Linking up with Monday Mingle today. See you there!
