Peplum is trendy this Fall – and the fun part about it is playing with the proportions. Puffy Peplum could be a throwback to the 80’s and 90’s…which may be the desired look for those who didn’t wear it the first time around. Structured or geometric Peplum is perfect for the office, or be flirty and choose a ruffled hem.

The fabulous thing about Peplum is that it accentuates an hourglass silhouette, or it gives the illusion of one.

When putting together an outfit that includes an exaggerated shape, think about the overall proportions. If the Peplum is on the top (ie. a jacket) then wear a slim cut pant on the bottom. If the bottom is a Peplum skirt then wear a fitted or slim cut top.

Peplum pants do exist but I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone under the age of 6. Although, fashion is all about expression, so work the Peplum pants if you love them.
