Peplum is easily one of this year's biggest trends in fashion. I have had my fair share of "Oh, that looks really pretty!" at times when I saw a well-tailored one. That was also exactly the reason why I waited so long to try out the trend. I've seen really flouncy ones that have worked well only for certain occasions and some that are just 'forcing it', for lack of a better term. Generally, to be honest, I wouldn't say I'm a big fan. But when I found a peplum dress that I thought fit me well and was sewn near to perfection for my body's built, I thought it was about time I tried it out.


I have to say, it wasn't that bad. I guess what I liked about this one is that the overskirt thing was only done for the front half of the dress and not a full circle, which was sewn right at the side of the hip area and gave me a good figure.

That, of course, is just my two cents on this trend. It works well when the tailoring was thought about and not just merely sewing on an overskirt. What do you think? Have you tried out this trend? Or what about a trend you weren't sure about trying out (e.g. color blocking, print-on-print, texture play, etc)?


If you would like to know, I got this dress from Fusion Alley--a boutique in Alabang Town Center, located at the fashion area between Food Choices and Topman. They can customize your dress (change the color, make it sleeveless, make it more fitted, etc) based off of their existing designs.

    1. I thought so too! Having the dress being completely white was kind of dull, so had to add something on there :) I suppose the trend is very selective when it comes to who can wear it, depending on how it is made. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Frances! :)

    1. I have relatively wide hips too. But I think you just have to find the right one for your body type :) Like what I said, I liked that this one was only half of an overskirt, so it still gave me an hourglass figure. Maybe something like this could work out for you too! Thanks for dropping by! :)
