10th Commandment: May 16

Peplums are a trend that has sustained far past when I thought it would. However, peplums are hard to pull off for apple and pear shapes. The solution? A peplum that adds volume in the front, but keeps things sleek in the back. Otherwise you end up adding volume where none was needed, or even worse, creating the look of having to rear ends. No thanks.
Luckily, this skirt gives you the look of a peplum without the extra weight. And at only $35 it’s a great deal.
Frankly, I like peplum skirts. They add a bit of vintage whimsy to an otherwise staid work wardrobe. And I think that if you’re willing to try on a few, you can find one that enhances your figure.
I also like this Kensie skirt with a longer peplum, under-$50. Also, if you want color, try this bright pink peplum ($23), this teal peplum ($35) and this cobalt skirt ($35). And if you don’t mind a mini-skirt, I LOVE the clean lines, 2001-Space-Odyssey styling of this orange skirt from The Limited.
Plus size? I didn’t find a skirt that I loved, but I did find this under-$100 peplum dress. Add a belt and this dress is money. Petite? How about a $17 skirt? Or this pretty pink dress? Dealer’s choice.
