Peplum…a lingering trend?

image1xl
this time last year many stores were filled with their version of the peplum, a classic trend that was slowly returning and erupted Spring 2012.  the question, a year later…is the peplum a “has been”?
i must admit, I picked up a few peplum tops last year, mostly from H&M, one strapless, one tank, and two sleeved and all at a good price. there is something about peplums that give off a very feminine, classic vibe; ladies wear peplums. as of lately I have hesitated to throw on a cute summer peplum and head out the door, why? I do not consider myself trendy; I’ve been wearing high-waist bellies forever (and will continue). however I felt as though the peplum style was a little dated, not “classy-sex-siren-from-a-black-and-white movie” dated, but “yesteryear” dated.  check out how the style is continuing to be refreshed through, color, cut, and personal style.
i will throw that peplum on again and daintily nod yesteryear.
