It seemed as if it was going to be just a fad, but peplum has maintained its staying power in a big way because it’s a shape that works great on both curvy figures (it accentuates what you already have) and boyish ones, too (it gives you a little oomph where you need it). They’re as versatile as your favorite black tee shirt and can be worn with boyfriend jeans or as a compliment to some fancier jewel-toned trousers like in this look below. And you guys know we’re all about maximizing our purchases.*

*We’re huge fans of street style over here at Beso, but more often than not, the envelope-pushing outfits most frequently photographed just don’t work for our daily life. Cue Anne Ziegler, who is tracking down girls on the street with enviable style in looks you can likely source from your own closet.
