Frankie Essex tries out a hot new trend in a peplum top… but fails miserably


You've got a lot to learn about Essex style! TOWIE's Frankie tries out a hot new trend in a peplum top… but fails miserably

She's a relative newcomer to the cast of hit ITV2 show The Only Way Is Essex.

And when it comes to dressing to impress in her home county, it seems Frankie Essex has a lot to learn.

The 24-year-old stepped out this afternoon wearing an on-trend peplum top teamed with black leggings and black shoe boots.

But the outfit left a lot to be desired, making Frankie's slender figure appear bigger than it actually is.

Peplum tops, which feature an added layer around the waist, are a big trend for spring and summer this year.

However, they are usually worn with loose-fit trousers or pencil skirts rather than skintight leggings.

Frankie debuted the outfit as she
filmed scenes for the new series of TOWIE in Buckhurst Hill, Essex,
today alongside Chloe Sims.

Yesterday, Frankie had written on her Twitter page: 'Looking forward to tomorrow with @chloe_sims xx'

Chloe opted to wear a pair of tight black leather trousers for the outing, teamed with a white blazer and patterned scarf.

And the 30-year-old star was seen
perusing the goods on offer in the Believe In boutique – showing
particular interest in a pair of cropped red leggings.

Chloe revealed recently that she is
keen to introduce her daughter Madison on the ITV2 programme, because
she is keen for viewers to see the other side of her life as a mother.

She said: 'It's been spoken about and I would like to show the other part of my life, which is being a mother.

'Obviously I've hidden that through
three series now because I didn't feel it was the right time for Maddie
to be seen in person, I wasn't sure if she could handle it.

'But after all this time, we've both
become quite comfortable with that now. TOWIE has become my life and
obviously Madison's my life.'

The Only Way Is Essex is on ITV2 tomorrow night at 10pm.
