Curly » Pink Peplum Dress with V Back

by dietingfashion on April 30, 2012

Stacy London from TLC’s What Not To Wear has drilled into me that Peplum is a universally flattering look. I decided to test this theory when I saw this blush pink Peplum dress from Zara.

I do believe there is potential in the peplum look. I do think the material of this dress is not as flattering. The stretch causes the dress to crease in odd spots like under the arms, the back and around the waist. Another is construction of the dress is not durable for the price. I already see threading around the flare of the peplum.

The one thing I like is my hair in this picture. I rarely do anything besides straight or loose waves. I do like these tighter curls. My problem is that I can never recreate the hairstyle after it’s done. Every time I pick up that curler, my hair comes out differently. If I have no picture of how I want my hair to look that day, my hair turns out better than I could hope for. If I try to finagle my hair into a certain look, it NEVER happens.

Dress: Zara Peplum Dress with V Back (here)
Necklace: Amritha Singh
Shoes: Zara Pumps with Metal Toe Cap (a big snug in the toe box, but comfy otherwise) (get ’em here)
Clutch: Chanel

Have you tried a peplum skirt or dress?

Wow, you look stunning! I love your hair like that and that dress looks great on you. I haven’t ventured into the peplum thing yet. For some reason it still reminds me of the popular grade 8 graduation dresses back in the day LOL!

Those shoes are amazing too!

This dress is gorgeous Helen but if you don’t feel comfortable in it then by all means it’ll have to go back 🙁 I really love peplum and I have a chambray peplum skirt in my closet…I forgot that I had it until I saw this post…will have to put that together for June’s looks!

I love the dress! I’ve been wanting to get a peplum dress too, i only have one for formal occasions. The shoes are adorable too! I like how you paired it with the sag harbour necklace, i have it in blue but haven’t had any successful pairings. Seems like I need to make a trip to Zara soon!

You looks so glamorous in the peplum dress. If you don’t love the dress then return it and continue the search for the right one. I am currently looking for the right peplum dress.
