A popular trend that has hit the runways and the streets is peplums! I've been dying to get my hands on a great peplum top. Unfortunately, I have yet to find one! Now you may think as a curvy woman, I should be avoiding peplum but it can actually be quite flattering! When selecting a peplum piece here are some guidelines to follow:
- Make sure it is structured. No jersey knit fabrics that hang loosely, you want it to flare out, not hang on your body.
- The peplum flare should be wider than your hips. You don't want something that just sits on your hips, you want something that accentuates your small waist.
- The flare should start from your waist. You are trying to show off your frame so make sure the peplum hits the right part of our body.
- No elastic waist bands! The peplum should be a structured piece of the garment, not an illusion created by an elastic band inserted in the garment. It's never a good look!
Here's some of my favorite ladies rocking the look:
