Five Peppy Peplum Pieces

The Peplum cut was popularized in the 1800s and resurfaced in the 1940s as well as the ‘80s. That said, they are back…and with vengeance! Put it this way: Vogue dedicated 6 pages to the trend in their January 2012 issue in a spread called, “Dare to Flare.”

Peplum Tops-  It’s a fun and feminine twist on your standard blouse. There’s just something so chic about their architectural yet sleek shape. Plus I think it’s so refreshing to finally see the return of the waist after so many seasons of loose-fitting, baggy silhouettes! Peplum tops nip the natural waist and are also great for masking not-so-flat stomachs. 

Peplum Tops and Dresses- As for skirts and dresses, I actually prefer a smaller peplum. If you already have naturally wide-set hips, sometimes the extra fabric can make you look broader than you actually are. However, if you have a boyish figure both top and bottom peplums will work for you since they instantly create the illusion of an hourglass frame. 

Nevertheless, regardless of your shape, I honestly think this is a trend most women can pull off. Just be conscious of your shape and wear what works for you—more often than not, you’re either a top or a bottom peplum kind of girl.

Below are my five peppy peplum pieces:
