Outfit #1: Low-Key Dressy

For the first look, we wanted to play up the textured material of the top by pairing it with some gorgeous lace shorts. Sheer tights add an extra layer of warmth and a stylish touch. A trendy silver collar necklace gives the outfit an extra dose of glamour, while a black cross-body bag is both practical and chic. This outfit would be a fashion-forward look for a dinner date or other similar occasion.

Outfit #2: Autumn Hues

To make this peplum top work for daytime, the most obvious choice is to pair it with skinny jeans. However, instead of your basic blue skinnies, we decided to go with a trendy pair of plum-colored jeans, which create an almost monochromatic look when paired with the red blouse. Cozy ankle booties keep the look casual while a trendy leopard print backpack makes the outfit perfect for class. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a menswear-inspired watch and sparkling stud earrings.

Outfit #3: Trendy & Glamorous

Our final look is the dressiest of the bunch, making it a great ensemble for a formal occasion. Start by paring the blouse with a sleek black pencil skirt, which really accentuates that peplum silhouette. A snake print belt helps create an hourglass shape, while pointy-toe pumps elongate the legs. Accessorize with a white box clutch and red stone ring for a dressy and on-trend look.
