The early 2010s saw the rise of peplum silhouettes, a flared or pleated piece of fabric at the waist of a garment. But after its heyday, the peplum was retired. This year, however, the peplum silhouette is slowly making a comeback. On the spring runways, designers showcased new peplum styles in stiffer fabrications, making them feel more modern and less romantic. Peplum shapes have also made a recent appearance on the red carpet, with stars like Deepika Padukone and Sydney Sweeney sporting the controversial waistline.
These new peplums have a more subtle flare than the dramatic ones of the early 2010s, but they are still a focal point of the ensemble. Will you bring back the peplum or leave it to the stars? Only time will tell if this trend makes a full comeback.
