pretty- peplums

Peplums..were popping up all over the runways!


pep·lum: (pplm)
1. a short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket,blouse,or dress.

Peplums are showing up on everything….
from tops to jackets, 
dresses to skirts…
It looks like it's going to be a major trend for  
Spring & Summer!
from Jason Wu to Chanel
The peplum can be hugely flattering, it can create curves just as easily as it can cover them.

These exaggerated curves date back to the 1800's from the ancient Greek "peplos".
Through the years peplums have been mostly found in haute couture, but the nipped waist and flared or ruffled fabric sprouting out- made itself known among very trendy designers & celebrities this year and it looks like the peplum is here to stay!

What do you think of the peplum trend?
