Yes, the trend is back and I’m so glad. There is something flirty and feminine about the peplum that I just love! I think it’s a fun detail that could complete an outfit.
The Peplum dates back to mid-19th century, when the style was incorporated into jackets and dresses. Durning the ’40s Dior introduced the style into luxury fashion. More recently a trend of the ’80s, it was brought back durning the fall 2012 fashion shows. Currently, I am seeing signs of the peplum coming back, with many stores offering the style through their spring collections.
Many women shy away from the trend, fearing it will increase their waist line. I believe when worn correctly it actually does the opposite! Many designers agree and feel it can enhance a women’s body when worn correctly!
This peplum was purchased recently from Anthropologie. (Yes, I am sure you are learning of my love for this store). Not only did I gravitate toward the body, but the fabric. It’s raised and textured, different from other tops I own.
