2019's Peplum Trend Is Happening & These 12 Pieces Will Convince You To Try It For Yourself
You heard it here first: peplum is back, and better than ever. The once going-out top that you could count at least five of walking down the streets during a night out in any given city is reappearing on the fashion scene. But, it's not the basic short-sleeve peplum top you once knew and loved; this season's bringing a fresh take on the new peplum pieces, making them a surprisingly unique trend you'll definitely want to have in your closet.
For fall, there are a few key designers putting a cool spin on the nostalgic style — and if anyone can revive the peplum silhouette, it's L.A.-based label Brock Collection. In its Pre-Fall '19 collection, the designer included beautifully tailored silhouettes featuring a sweet peplum detail.
If you're in the market for a dress you can wear all fall and into winter, consider the Metallic Brocade Peplum Midi Dress for $4,270; pair it with a heel for the office, or a cool combat boot for an unexpected juxtaposition. In the line you'll also find the Cotton-Poplin Peplum Bustier Top, $800, that can be styled various ways — wear the bustier alone or on top of a tee for more coverage. And if you want a full beige ensemble, pair the top with the matching Frayed Cotton-Poplin Midi Skirt, $700, to create an easy, ridiculously stylish look.
Another designer getting in on the trend this season is Molly Goddard, who released chic peplum tops in her Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear collection. There's no sign of puff sleeves slowing down for fall, and the designer incorporated two trends in one with its Clara Puff-Sleeve Crepe Peplum Top, $810. And if you want to take the peplum silhouette to the next level, the Arlo Balloon-Sleeve Tulle Top, $1,800, has you covered. The statement piece includes romantic tulle, voluminous balloon sleeves, and a peplum hem, making it a true eye-catcher.
