Happy Monday beautiful ladies!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, mine was pretty relaxed; we didn't have any special plans..remember a few years ago how peplum pieces were everywhere? I feel as though they died out a little, but that doesn't mean it still can't be worn! I feel it's a classic and timeless piece that comes in many forms, which can add a chic and sophisticated touch to any outfit. The beauty of it is that it helps to create and enhance one's curves, working wonders for those of us who may not have a defined waist or hips, such as the case with the rectangular shape. For the inverted triangle, which I don't have a styling video on but often discuss here on the blog and have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to, it helps to balance out the width of the shoulders. For the hourglass, it helps to enhance the natural curves. What I want to point out is the apple and pear shaped bodies. In the past, I wouldn't suggest peplum to apple shapes, but as I've styled other women who fall into this category, it is rather flattering. It helps to create the illusion of more curvaceous hips, thus balancing out the curvaceous upper body. Lastly, for the pear shape, I would suggest you keep the neckline in mind, as well as how high or low the peplum falls. If it falls low, you may want to avoid it, as it can add some unwanted visual weight to the hips. I myself am a pear shape and this particular top works for me because it widens above my natural hips.
I hope you all found this helpful and that it put you at ease knowing that peplum would look phenomenal on you, if you were second guessing! Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check back again tomorrow for a brand new post!
