One of my favorite retro style trends from a past fashion era has recently returned- Peplum!- and as someone who loves feminine fashion trends (the girlier the better!), I couldn’t be happier.
Peplum is fabulous way for us ladies to enhance our female silhouette, by emphasizing a narrow waist and curvy hips (and if you don’t have either, this feminine trend will make you look like you do- a great fashion cheat). A peplum is gathered strips of fabric at the waist of an outfit, whether a top, skirt, dress or suit, and it evokes a shapely, retro 40′s, Marilyn Monroe silhouette that should never go out of style (though it does- it comes back every few decades so if you wondered why this looks familiar, it’s because style icons of the past wore the peplum trend in the 40′s and 80′s).
I loved this look on my favorite hourglass beauties of times gone by, and it’s still a great fashion look today:
Many celebrities, including Charlize Theron and Rosario Dawson, have been seen rocking this ultra-feminine fashion trend:
I love peplum! What do you think of the return of this pretty style?
