Spring into Plus Size Trends: Peplum

Plus Size Spring Trend- The Peplum

The return of femininity has influenced the spring trend through last fall into spring! Peplum details have found itself modern, sharp, sweet, and such a curve friendly silhouette! But what is even better about this trend is how flexible and wearable it is.

In full lace, paired with a color blocking element, as a top, skirt, or dress, in a bold print, this trend lends itself to every type of fashion lover, from the edgy to the demure! I have rounded up some of my favorite pieces fashioned in sizes 14+ for our curves!

Tips to Wear the Peplum Trend

  • A little timid with wearing anything that protrudes from your midsection? Start with a blouse that does not flare out too much or a dress with small peplum inserts.
  • Wear your peplum top with a fitted skirt or bottom to play off the proportions and to give play up your curves!
  • Feeling Vampy? Lace, florals, and strategic color will emphasize your bustline, minimize the waistline, and maximize the hips!
  • A Peplum dress can be one of the easiest entries into wearing this trend should you be timid! Subtle peplum details won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed by the trend!
  • Wearing a peplum skirt? Pair with a fitted top to show them what you are working with!

    I have the ASOS peplum shirt in black & the coral Dorothy Perkins peplum dress.  I love the peplum trend! The ASOS shirt really covers your tummy and looks great with a pencil skirt.  I also have the black/ivory polka dot peplum dress by Dortothy Perkins. I got so many compliements when I wore it!

    I love peplums!!!  They’re perfect for us inverted triangles.  Torrid put a peplum on a tweed shift a few years ago; man, I loved that dress and I got so many compliments.  And now that the shape is in stores again I’ll be adding a few new peplums to my wardrobe.

      I agree there, I am inverted triangle but have gone apple with middle aged spread so they are perfect for giving my figure some much needed shape and also the peplum hides my big belly.

    I like the trend but most of these items have capped sleeves which never seem to fit my arms, no matter what size I get, they’re really uncomfortable.

      I wear a little cropped shrug cardigan with mine as I hate my arms. Mine is sleeveless but I hate my upper arms so a shrug is perfect.

    I love this style! I’m a size 12 and I wasn’t sure if this would be flattering, but WOW how beautiful are these ladies! I’m into refashioning lately and I can’t wait to do this! Thanks for this post!
