5 peplum dresses you must own

Peplum dresses are one of my favorite trends. You can easily spot a peplum dress or top per the ruffled or pleated strip of fabric attached around the waistline.  This makes for a pretty dress that accentuates and cinches your waist.

These dresses can be found in many colors, prints, and fabrics; which makes it easy for you to find one ( or three!) you’ll love. This list includes five peplum dresses which make a great addition into any wardrobe. You’ll look perfectly pretty in peplum for every occasion!

A few peplum dresses with pretty accessories and shoes to match…

This pink peplum is a perfect birthday girl outfit! The nude heels and gold and pink accessories add glamour to an already sassy dress.

What’s better than a little black dress??? A little black peplum dress!!! A classic staple with sophisticated accessories. This is the perfect special occassion dress to own, keep it classy with a simple black pump and add some color with jewelry and a cute clutch.

This bright peplum dress needs to make it’s way into the work attire section in your closet ASAP! Pair it with a neutral blazer, heel, and purse to make a bright piece that’s also work-friendly.

An everyday peplum dress! Simply perfect to lounge in, or for a BBQ. The printed fabric adds a sweet and stylish touch. Pair it with flirty jeweled sandals, and sexy cat-eye framed shades.

I don’t know what I like more about this dress; the pretty heart cut-out on the back, or the silky blue hue. Either way, it’s got to be one of the cutest peplums I’ve seen! The heels and accessories I paired in this outfit complete the look for a rocker chic feel.

I am in love with peplums ( as I already mentioned!) Everything about them makes it a perfect dress in my opinion; the shape and silhoutte it helps create, the cut, the colors, the versatility, and the fact it exudes femininity.
