Peplum: I loved it then, I love it now

I remember my mom wearing peplum and she always looked so elegant. She had an hourglass figure and this flared-from-the-waist style accentuated it even more. I was excited to see peplum tops make a comeback a few years ago and I’ve been collecting them ever since: some new, some thrifted.

 This is the first one I bought and I was thrilled to be featured in Fabulous After 40. 

Since then I have a collection of 11 peplum tops. 

Two the same in floral and black

Lace peplum tops in pink and magenta

Velvet and lace tops in burgundy and black

Gray knit peplum top

White lace peplum to dress up jeans

Black velvet with a burgundy pencil skirt.

I’ll always love this flattering style that can be dressed up with a pencil skirt or dressed down with jeans. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

❤ carmen

      Such a fine compliment Ute! Oh yes, the weather is starting to warm up nicely, the birds are singing, robins have built a little nest, buds are appearing and we got our Gartenzimmer ready today! I’ve completely changed the decor and I’ll show you soon. 🙂

    You have so many pretty peplum tops! I love the lace ones! I agree, it’s such a nice style, and I have a few peplum pieces in my wardrobe, it’s great to hide a mum-tum, haha! It definitely seems to be making a resurgence now, I see it around quite a lot so I hope it’s a style that stays! 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂

      Thanks so much Mica! I love lace too. I’m rather a faithful fashionista; when I love something, I wear it no matter what others are wearing. 🙂

      Thanks very much Alison! It’s certainly is a flattering style. Gingham is so charming, my houndstooth is similar but I would also buy a gingham one if I ever find one. Red is one I’ve never found yet and would be great to have. Nice to meet another peplum fan! 🙂

  9. Your peplum tops look very good because they are tailered . Most are wider which I don t like that much. Love your black and white trousers! Enjoy your weekend!

  11. You look fabulous as per usual. I love peplum too. I’ll always wear peplum, even if it’s “out of style.” Same with my pointy toe heels. If one day pointy toe is out of style (and maybe it is right now?), I’ll still wear them.
