The Peplum Trend.

So apparently everyone is hitting up
 the Peplum trend.

The free dictionary says:

pep·lum  (pplm)
n. pl. pep·lums
1. A short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress.
2. See peplos.

[Latin, robe of state, from Greek peplon, neuter of peplospeplos.]

while Peplos is:
pep·los  (ppls, -ls) also pep·lus (-ls)
n. pl. pep·los·es also pep·lus·es
A loose outer robe worn by women in ancient Greece. Also called peplum.

[Greek.]

I thought this was rather interesting.

Well being the shop-a-holic I am, I had to get my hands on a Peplum top and try the style out for myself.
and I think it actually really suits me.
It comes it very nicely at the waist (my smallest part) and flares over my stomach (my largest part)

Definitely an investment for any hourglass woman!
