Be chic in a peplum


Peplum is a Greek word for ‘tunic’ and it refers to a short overskirt or ruffle that is usually attached at the waistline of a fitted dress, jacket,  skirt or blouse.

Peplums add detail to a garment and enhance style of the same. There are different types and designs of the overskirt. Some are barely seen on both side of a garment while some are very pronounced.

Peplums are very conspicuous and are usually the first thing you will notice on a garment. They also add a girlie feel to a dress and with the very pronounced peplums, there’s no need to accessorize much so that you don’t come out looking too busy and end up taking the attention away from the  peplum. If you are wearing a peplum skirt, make sure your top is very simple.

If you are keen on paying attention to detail in everything that you wear and you are not scared of being stared at for looking hot, then peplums are for you.

You can never go wrong with a peplum jacket/blazer and if need be you could always add a belt.

If you wear a peplum top then make sure your bottoms don’t have so much going on.

Then there’s the sophisticated sheath peplum dress that makes you ooze confidence and of course sophistication!

    Our ethnic competition might make some us not appreciate this analysis. However, as the writer says, the economy is only one facet of what an administration is judged. For those other areas however, the jury is still out. Hope we get well balanced analysis and criticisms devoid of hatred and insults.

      I wish you luck. Unfortunately some people are simply incapable of rendering critical evaluation without peppering it with political leanings.

    Excellent. The problem with Jubilee is they don’t have people clever enough to showcase their own achievements in an objective manner. They have hired cheap propagandists that no one would believe instead of smart people like Mr Wehliye who uses and simplifies the numbers. President Uhuru, please hire such people
