4 ways to wear my Peplum
For the last 4 years, I have been pushing out my popular peplum dresses; one of the most popular patterns/styles of the late 1940’s and the late 1980’s.
The word “Peplum” is derived from the Greek word peplos , meaning tunic and that is how I have designed my peplum dresses, constantly adding special detail every season to make it a bit different from the previous batch.
After Christian Dior launched the first collection of the “House Of Dior” in 1947, a tailored, feminine look was prized and tailored suits had fitted jackets with peplums fitted at the waist, but the fabric extended beyond the waist in an overskirt to accentuate the waist and make it look even smaller throughout the post-war period.
The modern peplum became popular as a design in women’s suiting in the jackets were often fitted at the waist, but the fabric extended beyond the waist in an overskirt to accentuate the waist and make it look even smaller.
Either way, I believe the peplum is a classic-timeless pieces that flatters all body types and here are my 4 ways to wear this simple peplum (Tunic style).
1. Peplum dress worn with collared shirt and tie for the fierce corporate woman!
2. Peplum dress worn with spaghetti strap vest under and embellished Peter-Pan collar. Looks good for a hot date or Thursday night drinks.
3. Peplum dress worn with sequin-embellished-collar blouse beneath. Looks good for a corporate evening event.
4. Peplum dress worn with short sleeve dress blouse beneath. Looks good for the last meeting before you close the deal.
PS: Now that we have designed the same style peplum blouse and skirt to go with, the Peplum blouse can also be worn with another blouse/shirt/turtle neck underneath to create a variety of fun looks throughout different seasons.
If you need to flatter your Christmas weight while you work on getting rid of it, this is the truth, Ruth!
