The Versatility of Peplum
By their very nature, peplum women's dresses tend to look formal. It's the fitted design that nips in at the waist and flares at the hips. This style looks stunning on practically anyone who wears it, regardless of age, size, height, personal style, or event. In fact, peplum is a go-to silhouette for many women, whether they're petite, tall, slim, or plus-sized. If you're a curvy woman, a peplum dress helps to shape those curves and creates a gorgeous hourglass silhouette. The same is true for thin body types—the peplum shape naturally makes every woman look beautiful.
Peplum on the Daily
Although peplum has a reputation as formal wear, there are plenty of casual dresses that embrace the style. Casual strapless dresses are perfect for low-key backyard BBQs, summer parties, and day-to-day errands. Avoid looking too styled for daytime occasions by picking out dresses in vivid colors, decorated with eye-catching prints or patterns. Think stripes or polka dots, as well as abstract prints and floral patterns.
Thanks to the tailored cut of most peplum dresses, they look professional and polished enough for office environments. If you're in the market for smart work attire, consider adding a few dresses into your weekly work wardrobe rotation. Both H&M and Banana Republic offer crisp, sophisticated peplum pieces that will knock them dead at the office. For work, it's best to stick with plain, basic colors. Create a signature work-ready look using blazers, scarves, shoes, and jewelry. Stick to clean lines and simple designs—no loud prints, neon colors, or sparkles.
A Formal Affair
Not so surprisingly, there is an array of peplum dresses for juniors and women who are in the market for a formal look. Cocktail dresses fit beautifully with the peplum silhouette. It's easy to find peplum dresses for prom, homecoming, parties, and other formal events. Nasty Gal produces fun, youthful peplum dresses that are perfect for younger women, but nearly every brand has at least one sizzling peplum piece that begs to attend a formal function.
Black is where it's at in terms of color choice, but it's definitely not the only option. Peplum dresses pack a lot of punch in a relatively small package, so feel free to browse for dresses in dazzling colors. Embrace the sequins and metallic materials. Look for edgy materials, such as lace or leather. Dance the night away in a ruffled skirt, or enjoy dinner in a sleek, fitted number.
