How to wear a Peplum!

I did not title this post Spring Essentials because this is a breakdown on how to and how not to wear a peplum.  I will try to provide photos and explain it along the way, so that you don't miss out trying out this fun trend! First, some shopping options! : D Here are the good peplums!

The Perfect Peplum

This is my definition of a perfect peplum. Its perfect for hiding a little baggage in the tummy and the hips while giving you a perfect hourglass figure. An added slit to enhance the sexy.. or not, according to your wish.

Lets have a look at the ones you have to avoid like the plague!


1. Too much material around the hips. So, instead of having a polished figure, you are stuck with a lot of fabric that looks like you are hiding a tummy, even on a model who probably flat.
2. I will never understand these peplum styles which look like they have dinner napkins attached to the hip.
3.A peplum outlining your crotch - most definitely a no-no
4. A cute peplum but with a single mistake - see how the peplum comes beyond the widest part of her hips? She looks even wider than she normally is. - Not a good look!

So, this is my take on the peplums. What do you think of this trend? Do you agree/disagree with my thoughts? Sound off in the comments section!
