The peplum is an ageless trend that keeps coming back year after year, and really this is not surprising. It is one trend that goes well with every woman. If you are slim, it makes you look shapely, giving you the appearance of hips. If you are plus size, it makes your waist appear slimmer; what’s not to like?

This ankara peplum jacket is a great example of how classy this trend is and we’ll further examine how you can take this classic style and add it to your ankara creations because you know that we Naija women love our African print fabric 😉 .

So here are 4 ways to wear Peplum

Peplum Top

The peplum top is classy and gives you a stylish silhouette. It does a lot for your figure also and can be worn to work or for occasions. Pair it with a straight skirt and you have a winner.

The Peplum Skirt

The peplum skirt is perhaps the most versatile way to wear the peplum trend and this is because you get a lot of freedom with what you wear above. You can wear a simple tank top for a causal laid back look, or a classy dress shirt for a more formal style.
