You will really know that a fashion trend has arrived when you see 4 out of 5 women wearing it. Do you know the idiom “it spreads like wildfire” – yeap, a trend is like that.
The current fave is the peplum blazer. Upon checking on the Internet, this blazer was not a new creation but was already part of a fashion revival. It was created during the 1940s and is now making its comeback.
Unlike the other jackets or blazer, the peplum has ruffled ends which flatters all body types but in particular the hourglass bodies. Youqueen.com blog site has given a bit of an overview about the blazer and at the same time gave useful tips on how one can wear it with style for different body types.
Plus size women who are reading this might get turned off – please don’t. I know I have mentioned ruffled ends and that is kind of a no-no for women who are a bit heavy waist down. From the fashion articles that I have been reading, plus size women should not fear this blazer because it gives a silhouette of a waist to hip curve. Resultly website got these peplum blazers that are too cute to be ignored. I like the Charlotte Ruse and Wet Seal collections. These blazers are just right to the waist that gives the curves plus size women are looking for.
This blazer can be paired with shorts, dress, skirts and pants. It will be nice to pair it off with a bottom that is form fitting and not loose so that visually you will not look big (especially if you are plus-size).
Look at this young lady wearing an Ashley Stewart peplum blazer. The blazer sits well on the waist. Though the color of the blazer is light, it did not make her look big because she has also paired it with dark denim jeans that gave a curvaceous silhouette of her body, from her waist down.
Make sure to wear shoes with heels so that it elongates you rather than wearing flats (this applies to all body types). Now for the group of women that was not blessed with a bigger behind, this blazer can also work wonders for you because of the ruffled ends, it gives an illusion as if you have a bigger bottom than what you do actually have. Give it a try by wearing a dress or a skirt and look at the mirror to see its effect.
I leave you with another blog article on how to rock the peplum outfits before it gets you.
Remember, for fashion, no one is left out.
