modern peplum

Alexander Wang has done it again.  I saw this sweater online and in stores a hundred times (exaggeration) and never thought to put it on or even give it much consideration.  It just seemed too bulky and unnecessary.  And then one day, inexplicably, I tried it on.

I'm sorry I doubted you Alexander, you were right.  As you can see here, impeccably styled by the geniuses at La Garçonne, it is stunning.  It hangs differently on my fuller-than-a-model body, but it is equally gorgeous, and I think it would probably work on all kinds of shapes and sizes.  I'm not sure why we're not seeing tons of images of this, but it can be unzipped, giving you a gorgeous sweater that's shorter in the back, and it can even be worn backwards (I often try things in different directions in the dressing rooms, doesn't everyone?) so it's cropped in the front.  The knit is ridiculously thick and luxurious and also comes in cream and a pale grey.  I'll take the lot of them, thanks.
