Peplum Talk

by The Zoe Report

If you have managed to pass up the peplum movement thus far, we press you to seize the day by giving the flattering flare a go! A long admired style, the feminine look first originated in the 19th century and has come back into the spotlight time and time again with notable prominence in the ‘40s, ‘80s and now. Arguably its biggest revival to date, the peplum of today—read: ETRO—is impeccably sleek and more in demand than ever.

As outspoken wearers of the style in all forms from flouncy blouses to dresses and skirts, we are very excited about the trend’s newest rendition: the all-inclusive belt! Particularly, ETRO’s aforementioned leather cincher. The icing on the cake of the Italian fashion house’s fall collection, the waist ruffle promotes the ingenious notion that one can pop a little peplum into every look! Available in sophisticated brown and coveted oxblood, ETRO’s designer add-on serves as ideal inspiration for us style-conscious ladies to practice our peplum on the regular.

Availability: ETRO Leather Peplum Belt ($1310, available at ETRO, New York, 212.317.9096). For additional information, visit Etro.com.
