Leave it to the genius of Junya Watanabe to conjure up the prim, old-world regality of Christian Dior’s iconic bar jackets into an updated motorcycle hybrid shape to let the associations run wild this season with his must-have luxury moto peplum jacket.
Part urban warrior, part ladies-who-lunch, we can see it working wonders with a myriad of pairings from proper pencil skirts for day, to a voluminous maxi dress come night and a pair of crisp cigarette pants come weekend errands.
Looking put-together and shamelessly cool has never seemed so easy until we saw this covetable beauty on the runway and suggest you consider its multitude of effortlessly wearable directions today at Barneys.com.
Do you love the look of a peplum but want to honor your softer side?
This Alice + Olivia “Ella” Peplum Tee at Shopbop is just it! And, it’s TV-friendly blue if you’ve got any appearances coming up. -Naveed Hussain
