At first glance one would think peplum may be unflattering (unless you’re a size zero), but believe it or not it’s the exact opposite.  With the right color and pieces peplum can balance out curvy women and enhances those in need of a little shape.  Tips: When choosing a peplum top or skirt, one color is the easiest and most flattering; If the neckline is low, keep the hem longer (and vice versa. This is usually a given, BUT essential in keeping with a classy peplum look); bypass strappy heels or boots and instead try a slingback or stacked heel oxford to balance out the extra fabric.  Most importantly, keep the jewelry simple!  The peplum itself can stand on it’s own.  Check out some of picks below.
