Last night’s MTV Movie Awards were trending with two cool styles: peplums and menswear. I tend to favor a more girly style, but worn correctly, this menswear trend can have just the right amount of sex appeal.
When wearing a peplum look, it’s all about the hips. The peplum hits your body in a lot of our “problem areas” (stomach and hips). I’d style my peplum mini with Superior Derriere. I want a piece of shapewear that will pull in my hips and stomach while lifting my backside. Both Emma Stone and Charlize Theron have such a romantic, high glam feel, while Julianne Hough’s look is edgy and playful with a cut out in the stomach. I’m all for this peplum hip action!
Want to wear pants and still look and feel sexy? All of these women last night did just that. For a classic menswear look, like Janelle Monae, find a pant leg that’s slim fit and a suit coat that is tailored in at the waist. This will accent your figure in all the right places. If you’re looking for just a touch of menswear, like Shailene Woodley or Leighton Meester, pair a vest with pocket or button details, similar to a suit. Either way, you want to make sure you’re figure beneath the menswear inspired looks is giving you an hourglass shape. I wear a bodysuit under my menswear style to keep my shape girly! Try one of these.
