In the three years since the peplum trend made its big comeback, two camps have emerged: You’re either for it or against it. For my part, I’ve never met a peplum I didn’t love — especially vintage 1940s peplum suits and retro-inspired numbers.
Vogue 8815 in polyester double knit, is a thoroughly modern — and fairly subtle — take on the waist-accentuating ruffle. How cute is it paired with a pair of skinnies and tall boots for a casual look? I shortened the above-peplum bodice length so that this would hit at a flattering spot on my hip (Hint: Not its widest point) and swapped in an invisible zipper in the back.
