Comically inspired

Peplum has made a big entrance this year -- and thank goodness!  A dress like this is great for a night out because it provides a little extra coverage if you accidentally gorge on dinner or feel a tad bloated from drinks with the girls.  This style, with the peplum on the hips, is also great for girls with a "ruler" or athletic figure because it adds the illusion of hips.  If done right, there actually is such a thing as a sexy and comfortable dress.  I wore this on a sushi date (as I do usually eat enough sushi to be rolled to the car) and was psyched that I didn't feel miserably constricted after having that last bite of sashimi. 

Comic-inspired fashion has also been peeking through recently, like this Phillip Lim sweater.  If being covered head to toe in action-bubbles and men in tights is too much, a simple quirky accessory showcasing the trend can be just enough to keep your style current and simple.

Now go save the world in stylish comfort, superhero(ines)! xo
