DETAIL - The Must-Have Peplum

This detail may sound like a part of the body, or something you would strum a guitar with. In fact the peplum is neither of those, it is the skirted edge which you will find on many a garment at the moment. It sits above the hips and is generally attached to a fitted jacket or pencil skirt like an over skirt or ruffle. When the tailoring fits just right, this is a smart and flattering choice and mega trendy too.

I love the exaggerated peplum detailing on this dress. It makes it super-feminine and stylish all at once.

Dorothy Perkins has lots of peplum dresses including this fitted pink one. Shop more at the Dorothy Perkins website

The perfect party peplum dress, this black version with sheer panel is sexy and stylish.

Some peplum dresses remind me of my party dresses as a child growing up in the eighties, but the peplum was probably most fashionable in the forties. Have you tried the peplum dress yet?
