Peplum Skirt
There's a lot of flounce for the ounce here, so select a soft material. "Stiff peplums look too Dynasty," says O creative director Adam Glassman.

How to Wear It: Embrace the skirt's femininity by choosing a sexy peep-toe or strappy heel.
If You're Short: Avoid wedges—they visually shorten your legs.
If You're Tall: A wide belt is an unexpected, chic addition.
What to Avoid: A full top that obscures the peplum. And no boots, stiletto or otherwise.
