Our denim vest ( https://hoardcouture.com/collections/original-denim-designs/products/hoard-couture-original-denim-skirted-vest ) has an added skirt, along with other detailing, that creates the illusion of a peplum. This stylistic detail on any outfit will slim the waistline and the hips by sitting wider than both actually are. The longer length of the dark denim also elongates the torso rather than cutting the figure in two as a regular jacket. or denim vest will tend to do. Shown with matching dark denim heels and a basic men's oxford shirt, one could easily switch to tights and flats or a turtleneck and jeans to make a totally different look. All pieces are from a private closet.
