First of all, men don't like them, so when out shopping for a peplum don't ask the male species for advice, this is a trend they clearly do not understand! Lady Gaga will wear hers really loud and sticking out, but we are not Gaga and as a modern woman we don't want to wear them retro looking as in the 40s or 80s à la Crystal Carrington either. Go for a tailored shape, muted tones like black, navy, grey, and for a modern look I like it best worn with baggy trousers, boyfriend jeans or even bermudas! Take a look at the top pic, this is modern unexpected peplum perfection! You can find a great selection at COS, ASOS and H&M Trend right now.
