Pump Up the Peplum

By  March 30, 2012

Peplum is back, ladies. The ruffled waistline emerged in the 16th century and made a huge comeback in the 80s. Now, thanks to its Spring 2012 runway popularity, the peplum is popping up all over the place. From blazers and blouses to dresses and denim, it’s the perfect way to add a feminine touch to tailored pieces. Whether worn for day or night, keep your peplum stock modern with a punch of color, unexpected detail, or pairing the flirty silhouette with a structured garment.
