Here are some tips to make it work:
1. Define your waist. Wearing a peplum silhouette is really about showing off your silhouette and making your waist the focal point. You can do this by making sure the top of the peplum hits your waist (the thinnest part of your body) or by also adding a skinny belt.
2. Keep it slim. Since the peplum creates volume you want to keep the rest of the look slim (not skin tight) and streamlined. Wearing a pencil skirt or skinny pants will do the trick. Also, keep the sleeves (if any) minimal.
3. Make it modern. This trend was popular back in the 40s, and there are several ways to wear this silhouette: in tops, dresses or skirts. Stick to one, but play around with different fabrics (leather anyone?) and combine with other trends to make your look current. For example try a polka dot peplum top with colored skinny jeans.
What do you think, is this a trend you will try or skip?
