All right, so you’ve all given me lots of food for thought. I’m leaning toward most of your suggestions about wearing heels with it to lengthen the look as anything with a peplum can make me look both shorter and wider, and that’s about as attractive as it sounds! Anyway, as requested by some comments, below are photos of the jacket on me as a visual aid for your styling tips.
If I button the jacket completely, all you see is a black jacket:
And if I leave the last two buttons undone, you can see the colorful lining under the peplum as I walk:
This jacket was purchased one size up from my usual then altered to fit like a 34. But looking at the runway photos in the last blog entry, I see that it’s meant to be worn even more snugly on top so that the peplum is really pronounced. But this girl’s gotta be able to breathe so I think I’ll leave it the way it is.
So like last time, I’ll cull through all of your ideas, test them out and then post result pics!
