5 Peplum Tops to Consider Now

Peplum: a short piece of fabric that is gathered, flared or pleated at the waist of a skirt, jacket or top.

Peplum was a big trend on the Spring ’12 runways and is still going strong for Fall ’12 and Resort ’13.  Initially, I was put off by the peplum.  It just seemed a little too girly and frilly for my style. But now, finally, I’m loving it!  The peplum accentuates the waist where it is the smallest and provides some coverage where many/most? women would love to have some extra camouflage. 🙂  Although you may have to play around with different styles to find one that has the right proportions for your body type, I think it may be worth it!  It’s a great combination of demure and sexy.

From top L to R: Topshop (basic), Topshop (lace back), Marc by Marc Jacobs(now 20% off), Julie Haus(now 60% off), Theory(Poignant Pleated silk)

Peplum looked amazing on the runway…  I’m convinced!
