It can be a fascinating game, noticing how any person with vitality and vigor will have a little splash of red in a costume, in a room, or in a garden... - Edgar Cayce
Peplums are the answer to just about everything. They have to ability to hide maybe not-so-flattering waists or thighs but magically accentuate it at the same time using an overcoat at the waist otherwise know as a peplum. Adding a belt can do you no harm, whether you want a pop of color, or to accentuate your waist even more. These were some of my favorites, because each had a little quirk that would make you WERK.
  • My personal favorite was dress at the top right. Its thin spaghetti straps and heart shaped neckline are effortlessly alluring, and its simplicity allows you to wear the dress, not the dress to wear you. Soft bouncy curls, strappy black heels, and a clutch should complete the look whether your going out with the girls or having a romantic night this Valentine's Day.
  • Lace is sure to get you that Va Va Voom look. It's screams romance, especially when paired with red. I think round platforms rather than strappy heels or peep-toed pumps match the lace much better allowing focus on the dress and more importantly, you.
  • And then there was one. This last dress caught my eye for its interesting take on the peplum. I love how the layers of the peplum were done from side to side, which is not something I've seen very often while browsing for peplum dresses.It's higher neckline would look great with a bib necklace or any short chunky necklace.
But the one thing these all have in common is that they are all red. Red is the color of love, passion, and in many cultures... happiness. Who wouldn't want that for Valentine's Day?
