You may have seen a hint of them this past spring and summer, but Peplums are sticking around as one of the hottest trends this fall. Here are three good reasons why: 1. they bring a classic look to any ensemble, 2. they’re slimming at the waist, 3. they can be dressed up or down. They’re also just plain adorable. The high waistline of the peplum elongates your body, so pairing with a slim-fitting pant or a knee-length skirt is the way to go. You can rock a plain peplum like this one or spice it up a bit by choosing a bold and colorful floral print.
