Today’s deal is inspired by the gorgeous and always stylish Tanesha at Girl with Curves‘ trendspotting post “…The Peplum.” She shows a couple of peplum dresses I’d max out my credit card for in a skinny minute, if only they were in my size – and I could figure out pounds to dollars before guilt set in.
For the budget conscious professional in a conservative office (hello, legal support staff readers!), it’s not always economically feasible to buy a seasonal trend – and sometimes the latest trends are considered too daring by some employers.
Investing in a more conservative translation of a current trend is one way to get the most bang for your buck, and still update your office wardrobe. For example, this black Calvin Klein blazer offers the cute, trendy peplum in the back, but can be worn to court or out to dinner.
Buying a neutral peplum blouse is another option.
