matase sutera Peplum
Tracks the trend of the waist ruffle and tells you why you should try it — ASAP!
On first look, it might seem like a severe and intimidating trend, also theatrical at times, but young designer Priyanka Khanna insists Indian women should embrace the trend. “a well-constructed peplum flatters voluptuous women (think Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and even Oprah Winfrey). It’s not true that this silhouette is only for twiggy thins. ” She lists some reasons why:
1.Indian women have the gift of curves and the peplum celebrates the waist-to-hip area. Women who are proud of their narrow waist but are conscious of their lower stomach bulge can seek solace in a peplum. It covers those flaws. On the other hand, a peplum also helps accentuate curves on a ‘straight boyish’ figure. It’s versatile.
2. The waist ruffle on a peplum skirt is something that creates proportion in a body. When styled with a slim-fit shirt or even a simple camisole, the look makes you stand out in a crowd. However, keep in mind that there are different types of peplum skirts that are suited to different body types. Remember, it is all about dressing according to one’s body structure.
3. Whether you are tall, average or short and sweet, the peplum works. Short peplum dresses give an appearance of longer legs. Peplum pencil skirts that reach the knee or the narrow part of your legs can be worn by tall or average-height women. Not all of us are gifted with 37-inch catwalk legs, hence no boots of any kind (booties or thigh-highs) should be worn with peplums. Opt for some fun pumps or peep-toes.
4. If you are not used to peplums, the easiest way to incorporate the trend into your wardrobe is to start with a peplum jacket or top. It gives your outfit a sudden oomph and geometric character. The peplum on a jacket or top is advisable for women with heavier hips (it has to be placed strategically). This can be teamed with trousers, jeans or fitted skirts. Note: The peplum is an elegant ‘waist ruffle’, hence should not be worn with loose, flowing maxi skirts or baggy jeans!
