Fall Essential: Striped Peplum

Fall has officially arrived on the calendar.  The rain is back this week in Seattle, and the wind has such a chill to it!  Last week, however, we had sunshine and temps in the mid 70's, which is still shorts weather in my book.  I purchased this black and white striped peplum top during Banana Republic's Labor Day weekend sale, and it is such a great fall basic.  I love that this top combines two of my favorite trends: stripes and peplum.  For this outfit, I kept it simple and casual by pairing striped peplum with red shorts and flats to run errands.  I can also just as easily see dressing up this top with a pencil skirt, blazer, and pumps for work.  It's so versatile!




Top: "Striped Ponte Short-Sleeve Peplum Top" in black (available in petite and regular!), $39.50 (on sale!) at Banana Republic here

Lucky for me, striped peplum tops are still on-trend and easy to transition to fall.  I would consider this piece a fall essential!  Check out my current save and splurge picks for striped peplum tops below:
