One of the trends mentioned is peplums and the person who commented was questioning why middle-aged women would want to add visual weight to that part of their body. Good point, however I am sitting here wearing a peplum top as we speak! Obviously I immediately rushed to look in the mirror to reassure myself that I didn't look too fat and then I decided to ask for a second opinion.
When I bought this navy top (it was in the sales at Hobbs otherwise I might not have bought it!) I actually thought it gave me a waist and therefore was a flattering look. As a comparison, here is a photo of me in an ordinary top (which happens to be pink: Robin, please note!) so I would be interested in your views. The jeans, by the way, are also pink - though when I first saw them I thought they were red - so maybe pink is becoming my signature colour.
Which of these two looks is the most flattering, in your opinion?
Would you wear this style? Are there any other recent trends that you have followed?
