Peplum tops and dresses are a godsend for people with rectangular torsos. They are instrumental in creating the illusion of a low waist-to-hip ratio for people who normally look curve-less. One of the challenges in dressing my body is that I make a lot of perfectly cute dresses look childlike – I could be 20 pounds heavier or lighter and still have the same bust-waist-hip ratio.

I normally take the peplum trend one step further by belting the narrowest part of my waist. I am proportionately long-waisted so I prefer using thicker belts to do the job. 

How do you wear your peplum items?
