Fashion Trends: peplum skirts


The peplum skirt (or dress) has popped up in fashion at various points in history, most noteably during the 40s, when this look was all the rage, but it looks like the peplum is having a bit of a “moment” again this winter, with a huge amount of skirts and dresses featuring this distinctive style.

What does everyone think of it, though? We’re normally huge fans of anything even remotely 40s-inspired, but we have to admit that while we don’t hate it by any means, this isn’t our favourite look, purely because we prefer our pencil skirts unadorned, and we think peplums can look a little fussy if not done right. When they are done right, though? Well, that’s a whole other matter…

What do you think about the current revival of the peplum, readers? Do you love it, or will you be happy to see it drift back off the fashion radar?
