The Classic Peplum Hem Dress

The Classic Peplum Hem Dress

Whether you’re going to a wedding or birthday party, this classic pep hem dress from Closet London is essential for any affair. Pair with sling back heels and statement accessories to achieve a classic-chic look.

Peplum isn’t anything new but this season, and yet I’m totally gaga over the resurfacing of the hourglass-enhancing silhouettes! Right now, it’s all about adding a little peplum to the bottom of our skirts and dresses, which transforms the ol’ drop waist into an incredibly dramatic look. If you’re tired of simple skirts and want a fresh way to show off your legs, the midi peplum hem skirt is your best bet. You can turn heads in this pale pink piece ($90), and be super chic and elegant at the same time!

On a different note: My family and I are moving next week! This weekend is going to be super busy since we need to get our current house all ready and packed up for the big move! My husband and I purchased our dream home and I cannot wait to share it with you but in the meantime follow me on Instagram for updates! I won’t be able to post here much since I’ll be busy moving but I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop via my socials.

As always, thanks much for your support—I adore you all!

    I love the pink peplum hem dress. You look so beautiful in it, and it makes such a lovely silhouette – kind of like a mermaid skirt. I have to get one ASAP!
