Peplum, Peplum & More Peplum

Posted: Apr 19 2013

The peplum trend has really stuck around. What people had thought would only stay around for only a season has proven it has staying power right now. We’ve spotted this style on the street and on the red carpet.

Fabsugar.com featured Emma Stone wearing a stunning Burberry Prorsum stop in a luxe blue hue.  She paired it with a sparkling green skirt for an end color combination that was stunning.

And then on HuffingtonPost.com, we spotted the beautiful Brooklyn Decker in a sleek and sexy Stella McCartney peplum dress.

The peplum design is very feminine and ladylike. What does peplum mean? It is a short overskirt that is attached to an item or when you add excess gathered fabric to a design to create a flared accent. There are peplum blouses, peplum tops, peplum skirts, peplum dresses and peplum jackets. You can pretty much turn any clothing into a peplum piece.

Peplum items curves when you don’t have them and if you already do, it simply plays them up for a very Marilyn Monroe-esque appearance. When you wear peplum tops like our Rebecca’s royal blue wave peplum top or our Sally’s black wave peplum top, make sure to keep the bottom fitted. Think along the lines of skinny jeans or pencil skirts. If the bottom isn’t contoured to fit your body, it will look as if you are creating too much volume and will lose your shape completely. Finish off your look with a pair of high heels to elongate your body and take a fashionable step out into the world!

For a casual look, slip it on with cut-off denim shorts and your favorite Converse sneakers. It would be very stylish and effortless. But for a night out with the girls or for a hot date, why not pair this peplum top with a sleek pencil skirt and platform, ankle strap high heels? Complete it with a hot red lip and you will look incredible.
