I'm excited today to be wearing my first ever peplum top today.
To be honest, I'm not a person who blindly follows or wears trends.
In my teen age days, when I was completely smitten by minis and skin tight tops, my mom used to tell me- "Fashion keeps changing, dear! It is important to have a style of your own, rather than just be fashionable, and style is when you personalize the fashion trends and make them your own!"
So, once I managed to get over the teen age whims and matured as a person, I've always believed in embracing only those fashion trends which, I feel, look good on me or suit my body type.
Peplum was one such trends which I was never too keen to embrace.
It is not because peplum will not look good on me. In fact, I knew that the volume at the hips would rather flatter my skinny bottom and help create an hour-glass shape. It is only because, the idea of some extra fabric dangling at the waistline never appealed to me. Even though I have admired it so many times on other bloggers, I never thought of giving it a shot myself.
I was, in fact, attracted to this top in store only because it was lace and not because it was peplum, but it was a completely different story once I tried it on! I fell in love with the peplum too (may be because it was not too much fabric, just a little flare at the waist) !!
It is funny how we sometimes have such deep rooted misconceptions and discard many a things without even giving them a single chance! A lesson well learnt, I'd say.
I'm so happy that blogging, once again, helped me shed off one of my inhibitions.
I felt so sophisticated, so elegant and so prim and proper in peplum.
Tell me, have you embraced the peplum trend yet?
