Style File: Peplum

Written by on February 29, 2012 in Fashion, Style File - 6 Comments

The peplum silhouette first made an appearance last fall (remember this lust-worthy Giambattista Valli dress worn by Emma Stone?), and has since trickled its way into our frequented stores and onto our favorite bloggers. We love the bold statement this style makes — whether it’s a skirt paired with a simple tee, a dress that needs minimal accessorizing, or a top worn with jeans. The peplum is the perfect statement piece for a girlie girl!

    On T-Shirt/Blouses I couldn`t do it, also on skirts, I don`t know if I would pull it off, but I do like the versions that are more held back. Like for example the mint green skirt in the picture in the bottom right corner.

    Peplum is a favorite of mine, but I have yet to own any myself.

    I just picked up a super cute peplum top. I’m loving this style – it’s a quick way to transform an ordinary outfit.

    I love the feminine silhouette peplums create! Can’t wait to wear my new peplum waist dress this season.
