What I Wore Wednesday: The Peplum Trend

Fashion, OOTD

I don’t always jump on board fashion trends.  I like to think that I have a distinct style – solely based on what looks good on  my body.  The body should wear the clothes, not the other way around.  One trend, however, has me excited! Peplum!  The word originated in Greece  to describe a tunic.  The modern term refers to the short overskirt attached to tops or skirts that flares out from the body.  It was first used in the modern-sense in the 19th century but did not gain popularity in the fashion world until 1940s.

I adore the peplum; it adds a vintage flare, harkening back to the Victorian era.
