A peplum is defined as; A short flared, gathered or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress or blouse. The peplum is something that designers seem to be obsessed with this spring. Although I have always loved fashion, I can not say I have always dove head first into every trend. I decide if I like a trend based on how it fits me, I will not just wear something because it is trendy and "everyone else is doing it". I like to be unique and original and sometimes the trends are not "me" at all.
At first I might say I have not worn a whole lot of the peplum, but it is a trend that you may be wearing and not really notice that you are. A lot of jackets have a little pleat and flare in them that is considered a peplum. In the past I usually would sport this trend in more of a business attire. Now I am seeing more and more adorable casual outfits that have the peplum style. Shockingly enough I am really liking this trend, although I was hesitant at first. I do believe it is really easy to make this trend look absolutely horrendous, so you have to be careful. There are ways to make sure you are not standing out in all the wrong ways.
