Characterized by having a cute simple flair on the hemline of the clothing, peplums are a trend that has emerged this season as one that is very elegant, feminine and classy. Peplums are now incorporated with almost any items of clothing; from tops and jackets to dresses and trousers! When it comes to tops, your options are endless because peplum tops are nowadays made in countless styles, including strapless tops that are a more dressy choice for a night out or party, short sleeve tops made of cotton which are definitely more on the casual side, sleeveless tops, long sleeve tops, spaghetti strap peplum tops, and so many more. Peplum clothing is made from many different materials as well as styles including cotton, lace, leather, twill, and more. For a very unique look, choose peplum jackets this season which are basically the same style and which can also be found in many differing colors, but use the jacket for layering purposes.
Moving on to bottoms, this season you can choose to go all out and stun everyone by simply incorporating peplum bottoms in your look. You can choose between peplum pencil skirts, mini peplum skirts, peplum midi skirts which are a more formal choice, peplum shorts which are extremely edgy and perfect for a clubbing, plus a lot more to choose from. Since these styles are pretty out-of-the-ordinary, it’s best to choose them in fun materials such as leather and lace. Details are also a very important consideration when it comes to peplum bottoms; you can find them with sequins, studs, crystal embellishments and a lot more, but the best way to style them is by choosing a dressy top made of satin or chiffon, for example, and tucking it in. Finally, let’s not forget one of the most popular peplum styles, which is the peplum dress! These are made in a wide range of styles from sleeveless and maxi, to long sleeves and short length; the options of styles and colors are truly endless! [ All images from ASOS.Com]
