That Fabulous Flounce
By Alexis Drakeford
Taking a nod from 60s glamour and 80s edge, a new twist on clothing splashed on the scene last spring and fluttered its way to this season stronger than ever…the peplum.
What exactly is a peplum? A peplum is fabric added, much like a short flared mini skirt, to a garment for an hourglass illusion. The silhouette it creates is to die for regardless of the body type. These decadent layers hide a significant amount of deadly sins that we ladies like to cast out. It accentuates and creates a skinny waist while camouflaging a tummy. Who doesn’t love that?
This curve defying addition adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any look. The peplum trend, the hottest trend this season, is the new fashion staple for fall…no longer being a fashion dare.
These always-forgiving flares are a must in your fall wardrobe. Flirt with style in a peplum top, sweater, jacket, skirt, or dress in an array of colors. I have even seen a couple of peplum belts! Yes belts! That means you can add a flattering touch to ANY ensemble. The pinnacle of fashion fancy will have you looking fabulous in that flirtatious flounce. So will you be peplum perfect this season?
