Peplum: the mircle shirt

17 Jul

This shirt is no stranger to the fashion world, Peplum tops were first introduced in the 1940 as a way to glam up the traditional women’s suit. This was the age of a women’s first introduction into the workplace, and in true woman’s fashion they needed a killer wardrobe to match.
Fashion brought the Peplum back in the 80s where floral prints matched feminine accent and the trend was reborn.

Today in the modern 21 century the Peplum has once again made a comeback. This trend has made its way onto the runways and our closets just in time for spring/summer while the fashion world is still obsessing over vintage inspired chic 40s & 50s fashion.

The reason I call the peplum a miracle top is because this trend works great on everyone, all shapes and sizes, of all ages. It clenches the waist and flares at the hips to create a long hourglass figure. It instantly creates curves in all the right places and hides any imperfections with the flair bottom. Heres some tips on how to wear this trend.

Peplum tops
Pair with pencil skirts or straight leg pants. Stay away from anything with a flare bottom such as A line skirts or in pants anything larger than a boot cut hem. (Using these will make u appear wider on the bottom instead of the hourglass figure we are going for.)

On everyone. Have fun choosing patterns and colors, neons are totally in this season. Peplum dresses also make for the perfect LBD (little black dress) since its so versatile. Just remember the fit is important the peplum should sit on your waist just above your hips and the clench at or just below your belly button.
