The 1940s peplum trend is having a revival this season.

The 1940s peplum trend is having a revival this season.

A peplum is a ruffled detail attached to the waist area of a blouse or dress. The purpose is to add volume to a narrow frame or exaggerate a curvy figure.

There are two types of peplums and each one compliments a specific body type.

The first one is flared and has more structure. It is well-suited for a boy-shaped figure. It emphasizes the waist and creates a curvy silhouette.

The second type is a fitted peplum. The flounce is soft and flowy, making it an ideal choice for a voluptuous woman.

Feminine and flattering, a peplum adds a little frill and fun to summer dressing.
