Magical Peplum

To completely transform the look of this dress, I turned it into a pencil skirt by layering it underneath a top. Since the dress is embellished I had to go with a thicker, leather fabric so the sequins didn’t show through.

The peplum helps create an hourglass shape, especially when secured by a thick belt. To keep the silhouette, I chose a blazer that also nipped at the waist. It’s a great trick to extend the life of a statement dress.
