Peplums are popping up everywhere this season, but every time I had my eye on a skirt or shirt with this added flare I shied away thinking it would create a wider-looking illusion. I finally stepped out of my comfort zone after scoping out our new, budget-friendly and on-trend store at Mall of America®, Cotton On. I found this cheap and chic grey peplum and knew it was a must for this week’s $100 or Under. I had fun playing around with top options, but decided to marry it with this stunning floral blouse from Francesca’s Collections. The best thing about this sleek look is that it carries perfectly from a day in the office to drinks on a rooftop.
