OOTD: Bird print peplum

Peplum is a trend that I’ve been loving, yet hadn’t taken the plunge until recently. In theory, I thought it would suit the way I like to dress. I like to accentuate & cinch in my waist and then have a skirt flare out. It gives the illusion I have more curves then I do, i’m rather straight up and down. I finally caved and bought a top I’d been lusting after at Dorothy Perkins for ages. Yay for sales! Oh, and yes, it is ANOTHER animal print.

Well, I am in LOVE. It’s amazing! Dotty P goes up to a size 22, and i’m wearing the 22. This skirt has NO stretch but fits me perfectly, which I was honestly a little worried about. The back has a row of buttons, which I just found adorable. The material is quite thin and I found I had to wear a singlet underneath as you could make out my white bra underneath.

I paired it with a black cord pencil skirt that I was gifted by Virtu. I’ve not worn it before because I’ve found it a little hard to style. I haven’t worn pencil skirts in ages. It jumped out when I got this skirt though and I think paired with the peplum, it works well.

Have you jumped on the peplum bandwagon?

    Oh, this outfit is lovely on you! I’m yet to take the plunge and get any peplum in my wardrobe, as I’m a little ‘bummy’, I really do love the way you’ve styled this top up and it really suits you.

    I love peplums too! I have yet to try one yet though. The buttons down the back of the top are adorable. I really like the silhouette you got by combining the peplum top and pencil skirt. I thought it was a dress when I first saw the pictures. You look awesome. :)

    I have this, and now the mint peplum skirt from ASOS. I really like them. I thought the buttons down the back were a super cute detail.

    I thought they were a great detail! It just adds something more to the top.

    I have a flat bum, so it doesn’t cause me any problems, but then again, I think it would probably work at disguising a larger bum.

    I’m hoping to order some tops from Dorothy Perkins, but I am concerned about the sizing as I have super large boobs.
    How do you find the sizing of the tops?

  • http://extralargeaslife.com/ Natalie Mulford

    This is the first top i’ve bought from DP, I believe, and it doesn’t have any stretch. It a size 22uk and fits me pretty perfectly. I’m only a small b, bordering on c cup, so I think it just depends on the style and fabric of what you’re looking at buying.
