How To Take Peplum From Day To Night (PHOTOS)

Getting dressed for day can be as easy as one, two, three, but when you have to quickly go from dressed down to dressed up, the equation gets a little trickier. When it comes to day-to-night dressing, simple additions will help you do the math. You can add a layering piece for the nine-to-five or a pair of killer heels and a clutch for cocktail hour, but whatever the case, it's definitely the little things that count.

This season, when it comes to pumping up the volume on your wardrobe, there's no better solution than to shift your sartorial shape. The best answer to a drab ensemble is a pretty peplum top. Whether worn with pastel pants or a printed pencil skirt, it's a classic and versatile piece with plenty of stylish shape. To complete the look? Try a camel coat and luxe-looking loafers for day, or a short faux fur jacket and color block pumps for an evening out.
