Peplum :: Alert!

Heylo gals,

Hope all are doing well.

‘Peplum’….now what is peplum. Let me take you through the world of peplum and the history behind it.

Peplum :: A flared ruffle attached to the waist of a jacket or bodice.

This beautiful silhouette popularized in the 1940’s and 1980’s is back with a bang and can uplift any wardrobe. There is a variety of ways in which you can wear this hot trend! If you have a top with peplum detail you can pair it with denims for a casual look, a mini skirt for a flirty evening look, a maxi skirt for a lazy afternoon look or a pair of sequined shorts for a glam night look. The possibilities are endless! This beautifully structured garment looks good on almost all body – types because it cinches the waist at the right place and the focus stays on the hips. My advice would be to pile up on peplum in your wardrobe because this trend is here to stay!

Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs showcased this trend with a dark and edgy twist. Their metal plate peplum outfits look like something out of the future. I love the black leather peplum jacket! It can convert anyone into a rockstar!

A hint of peplum was seen on the Valentino runway as well. The transparent, soft fabric gives the outfit a very soft look which is novel to this trend.

So that was your runway lowdown of the trend. Hope you enjoyed the fabulous garments. I thought of posting a few street style pictures to give you guys a better idea of how you can incorporate this trend in your everyday dressing.

Are you ready to go the Peplum way? Do tell!

Love & Hugs
