Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

After being heavily featured on the Fall 2013 runways, leather and faux leather have been everywhere. Leather has moved beyond the classic jackets, mini skirts, and pants, and is now being featured on tops, shorts, and even accessories.

This trend is the perfect way to add some edginess to your wardrobe, but faux leather can be tricky to style - especially for daytime. However, it is totally possible to look chic and classy in this trend! Because of the wide variety of options out there, you can choose a piece with just a little leather paneling for a hint of sass, or you can find a full-on leather piece for a tougher look.

There are numerous ways to interpret this trend and remain true to your personal style. Keep reading and I'll show you how to style a faux leather peplum top for both class and a night out!

Faux Leather Detail Top: Class

Tone down this trendy faux leather peplum top for class by pairing it with ikat print shorts and a neutral-toned cardigan. The shorts keep the top casual enough for daytime, but the ikat print adds an extra hint of trendiness. The cardigan also adds some extra coverage without competing with the bold print and faux leather.

Black sandals with a gold metallic trim add a hint of shine, while a leather tote matches the peplum. Finish the look with sparkly stud earrings, girly light pink nails, and a pop of bright pink on your lips.

The pink and neutral accents lighten up the outfit, making the black and faux leather work for spring.

Lastly, achieve a Brigitte Bardot-inspired beauty look with a black gel eyeliner and a glossy baby pink lip.
