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.

I’d like to know the difference between a shift dress and a sheath dress 🙂
Peplums are amazing especially for women who have a more boyish/boxy figure; i have a rather thick waist compared to my hips and putting on a peplum dress creates a great figure on me, especially with a short peplum that ends around the hips (similar to the one above; maybe a bit longer). The peplum alwso makes things fun & flirty; they can be ruffly or pleated liek above, or simple or multilcolored.
very cute … love it! 😉
I couldnt agree with you more!
