Peplum originates in the Greek word for ‘tunic’ and may refer to one of the following:
- A genre of Italian films also known as ‘Sword and Sandal’
- Peplos, a kind of women’s garment in ancient Greece
- Short overskirt that is usually attached to a fitted jacket, blouse or dress
I define the peplum as the perfect piece of clothing to enhance the curves you have, create the curves you don’t have, and camouflage the infamous midsection.
