The pretty peplum pack is taking over! So just what are these peplums you've been hearing so much about? Well, lucky for you I looked it up: a flared ruffle attached to the waist of a jacket, bodice, etc. I guess the real question here is why? Well, apparently the look originated in ancient Greece, but my best answer? Because my skirt looked boring without it! Peplums have a definite retro feel for sure, but don't let that stop you from giving them a try. Countless celebs have been rocking the "peps" lately, from Emma Stone to Jennifer Hudson and everyone in between, so you can be sure there is a peplum to fit your own personal style. In fact, don't stop at dresses and skirts- try a blouse if you just want to dip your piggy toe into peplum.
