Style Glossary



A peplum is a ruffled or flared panel of fabric, which falls just below that natural waistline, adding a playful touch to any garment.

Characterized by an extention of the bodice of a garment below the waistline to create a shaping ruffle (that can be pleated, draped, or flared) that is oh-so-chic. Blouses, coats, and dresses (such as our soon-to-be-iconic Raspberritini Dress) can all feature a peplum waist, and varying cuts and styles of the ruffle have stolen the fashion spotlight for decades (as early as the 1860s!).
