Fashion 101: The Peplum

Kourtney Kardashian

Emma Stone
Peplum style skirts and dresses are so unique and help form and define curves. I love the peplum style, it reminds me of a bit of a tutu mixed with lots of chic! A peplum is basically just a sort of frill added in the waist section of a skirt of dress. I recommend that for anyone wanting to show off their waist or create a smaller waist to try out a peplum style. Beyonce's peplum begins exactly at the waist and is continued by a pencil bottom.Beyonce's peplum helps to show off her flat abs as well as her small waist because the rest of the dress is tight. Kourtney Kardashian wears her peplum in the style of a mini dress accented by a cute zipper. Just like Beyonce's peplum, Kourtney's begins right at the waist giving her a nice curve and small waist. The color of the dress is lovely and the snake skin clutch is perfect! Emma Stone's peplum is a bit weird since the fabric is bubbled up and sticking outward from her body. However, the color scheme is great! Be sure when purchasing a peplum style that the fabric is not to thick and that it is goin around your body equally. A peplum should be flattering!

Are you trying out the peplum style?

  11. I like that you've blogged about this trend, I started to notice it last year when Jil Sander's came out with her amazing collection featuring a beautiful hot pink one, but now everyone's rocking this trend haha! I like your picks but my favourite's are Beyoncé and Emma Stone- the orange looks amazing on Beyoncé's skin and I like the contrast in the bold colours in Emma's outfit :) I really like your blog, the tips are helpful, practical and actually worth taking note of haha!
