Let’s talk about the peplum here.
“Peplum” refers to a flared ruffle attached to the waist of a jacket, bodice, etc.
Peplum skirts are a nono for me, peplum dresses are a maybe but I’m dreaming of a textured, mint peplum top I saw at H&M yesterday.
I’ve a few ideas on how to wear it with simple but sophisticated pieces like fitted pants, distressd denim (skirt or jeans) and pencil skirts are best as it creates the illusion of a smaller waist and hour glass figure. It will probably be the most ladylike item in my closet if H&M has the top in my size.
