Wednesday's Look for Less: Peplum Dress

How do you feel about a peplum? Lucky magazine recently published a feature about the best trends for different body types and peplums came highly recommended for everyone from athletic builds to hourglass figures. Who knew such a superfluous ruffle could be so flattering?? It's time we feel less intimidated by them and embrace their waist cinching power. 

But to invest in such a trend or not to invest? That is the question. 

Fortunately for us, this spring trend is available everywhere from ultra high end boutiques and fancy department stores to affordable shops. The wide range of prices gives us so many options, I just had to show you these three. But there are so many more wonderful pieces that are still similar if you want to keep looking.

So what do you think- Invest in the peplum or not? 


  1. I would like to invest but for some reason i just can't believe that an extra ruffle around my butt and thighs is going to do me much good.

    1. I know- I felt the same way! I think the ruffle is supposed to conceal the area while making your waist look smaller. If you get it wrong though, it probably doesn't help very much!! I'm thinking I'm going to order a non-expensive top and give it a test run.


Thanks for stopping by Savoir-Flair. I look forward to reading your comments!
