Peplum Talk (+ OOTD)




I was a little late jumping on the peplum bandwagon but now I am a believer. The peplum is a curvy girl's best friend, hiding your tummy while accentuating the smallest part of your waist.  For the not-so-curvy, an appropriately placed peplum can create an hourglass look by flaring out at the hip.  The only enemy of the peplum is the wind...just like with a skater skirt, a sudden gust of wind can have you almost naked before you know it. There were many times throughout the day where I felt a draft on my back where the wind had raised my top.

Have you rocked the peplum trend yet?

  3. I haven't gotten a chance to get on the peplum train yet, but I do want to purchase a few tops for the fall (and a cute skater skirt too, since you mentioned it!). I'm loving the peplum look on you, Carmesha. And that top is in one of my favorite colors :-)
