Fashion Trends| Peplum Style Craze

Totally digging Solange’s dress choice for the Met Gala Awards. Just an extra splash of ruffling makes any outfit that more feminine. Extra ruffles — the essence of the peplum trend. This retro, now modern detail has come back full force gracing the hips of many celebs, runways, and malls.  I adored this style in the 90’s and never realized it went out of style until recently when the pages of mags were filled with peplum dresses, tops, and skirts.  As I, you may have many peplum tops in your wardrobe that you may have overlooked. Get on board with this waist-slimming trend!


How many peplum styled items do you own?

I have yet to buy anything peplum styled but have wanted to for the last few years. They care just so cute!

That Solange is working that dress! Love it! Have an amazing peplum style dress in my closet but gotta lose 20 more pounds of this baby fat to get into it!

Loving it! I was going to ask if you can wear this style with big hips but the curvy beauty in the second picture confirmed it for me! I love all three styles 🙂

I actually don’t have any peplum pieces. I am 5’7 but I have a short torso. Though I love this trend, I think it may make my waist look even shorter. I’m not sure. I’ll have try a few pieces on. In other news, Solonge looks lovely here! I love this color on her and adore how she’s kept her make-up subtle. Her hair is fierce, of course, as well!!
