Perfecting the Peplum

5.16.2013 WRITTEN BY Ellie New Trends, T+P Blog Central

While the peplum might not be for everyone, once you find the way to wear it, it is both figure flattering and fitting for almost any occasion. The key to this fashion forward style is balance. Because you are wearing ‘volume’ at the hip, you want to keep the top portion sleek and straight and the bottom slim and fitted.  If the proportions are right, this look slims the waist, hips and upper thighs.


Not only does this style flatter, it easily crosses over from day to night. Afternooning in a peplum can be fun and feminine, simply wear back to a pair of skinny jeans and pointed toe pump. A straight legged trouser with an open toe sandal is also an adorable option.

To take the peplum out at night, wear back to a pencil skirt or a sleek short. Due to the feminine and flirty nature of a peplum top, this look does typically require heels.


There are so many options right now with a peplum top; from a simple tee, to a ponte tank, and of course a swoon worthy leather peplum.
