Sunday Fashion Finds - Peplum

What is peplum? This is a short flared, gathered or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, blouse or skirt.  I find this silhouette very flattering for most of women body types.  For example, if you have smaller hips and would like to enhance the appearance of it - peplum will do just that.  At the same time, if you would like to minimize the appearance of your hips - strategically positioned peplum  will do it as well by balancing proportions of your figure.  I am glad this silhouette is back and already planned one new piece with peplum in my wardrobe.  Here is my selection of the examples for this trend via Vogue Italia

Alexander McQueen


Yves Saint Laurent
Burberry Prorsum
Pin It
