to peplum or not to peplum?

That is the question Hamlet should have been asking.
to peplum or not to peplum?

With its unique silhouette and feminine elegance, the peplum top is certainly a refreshing alternative to a plain old t-shirt or simple blouse.

Another perk of a tops in this style is that they can easily range from casual to dressy depending on the material. A top made from lace or silk would instantly dress up a pair of dark jeans for the evening, while a similar top in cotton would be pretty during the day.

My only concern about peplum tops is whether or not they would be figure flattering. If the seam hits at the lowest part of the waist then they may look great; if not, it could look awkward. Here's to hoping peplum tops are just as enchanting in person as they are online. If they are, I'm about ready to jump aboard this trend train!

  1. My only concern about the peplum is that I can't help but seeing them too formal, not for the daily life. Besides, trends don't last for long and I think the peplum will be out soon, unlike the pastels, so what will I do with a peplum top once it's not in trend anymore? It's not a trend that's likely to come back, it's not like flared/skinny jeans!
