Peplums are a huge trend right now, so I though it high time to show you how to smarten up your act by creating an on-trend peplum blouse using only a cropped top and half a yard of fabric. You can match the colors as I did for this project or make the peplum a different color entirely. That would work really well using black and white. The main thing is that your peplum length flare gently over the hips -- it shouldn't be any longer than six inches. So, update a cropped top with a flattering peplum to create a fashion piece that will glam up the most hectic of mornings.
