Peplum dresses are the hottest trend out there right now. Classy and cute, these pieces can be great for work, for fun, and special occasions. It just matters how long your skirt is and how flirtatious and fun your peplum detail is. Peplum tops or dresses are characterized by a flare detail at the waistline.
Some Peplum dresses have mesh detailing at the top that help you play a little game of peek-a-boo, while some have cut-outs on the side that show off your waist, adding bit of fun and flirty style to all those staring. You can throw a blazer on this dress, add some colorful pumps, and you’ve got something more appropriate for work.
Peplum detailing does not always have to be extremely fluted out at the waist. In fact, peplum detailing can simply be an over skirt or draping at the waistline. Some peplum outfits have a cut-out split on the form-fitting skirt, which helps you show off a little leg, while the peplum detail helps to flatter your figure. Some peplum detailing is short and full in the front, and long and flat in the back. It’s also nice in tweed material, and lace is another option, which gives off a sweet and innocent vibe.
Want to whittle your waist and show off bombshell curves? There’s one style you need in your closet to make it possible.
The peplum trend has been popular since women were sporting corsets in the 1800s. The idea was to dramatically emphasize the curves of a woman’s figure and it still works magic for the female outline today.
What makes this trend even more popular is that it benefits every woman’s body type. That’s right, any girl can sport the peplum and it will still do their figure justice. For instance, if you’re slim, sporting the peplum will give the illusion of curves and if you are a curvy girl it will make your waist appear smaller. Who wouldn’t want that coveted coke bottle figure?
