After a short hiatus to shop around Berlin for fun, fresh styles to grace our site next Spring (details to come!), Style Glossary is back! This week, I’m reading up on peplum. The peplum cut is characterized by an extention of the bodice of a garment below the waistline to create a shaping ruffle (that can be pleated, draped, or flared) that is oh-so-chic. Blouses, coats, and dresses (such as our soon-to-be-iconic Raspberritini Dress) can all feature a peplum waist, and varying cuts and styles of the ruffle have stolen the fashion spotlight for decades (as early as the 1860s!). It’s an instant hourglass figure for nights when you want to show off what you’ve got! What do you think? Have a term you’d like brought to light? Let me know! Thanks for reading, and happy shopping.
