The peplum is essentially a bit of extra material around the hips! It creates a very lady-like look and has a feel of old school glam about it. It's not for everyone, as it adds volume to the hips - and although this makes your waist look smaller, it's not great if you're already sensitive about that area!
Make up your own mind: They're all over the high street and would be great for an event, big night out or posh dinner date....
