Following last week's story on dressing to complement one's body type, we're introducing another key piece that can flatter your shape. One current trend that can create the illusion of a slimmer figure is anything peplum. This adorable trend is the answer to any girl who gets a little conscious about their tummy. Whether it be a peplum top, dress, or skirt, this trend slims you down by cinching your waist and keeping your upper body looking trim! Not only does peplum flatter your figure, but it's also a great addition to your closet because of the girly look it adds to any outfit. Take a look at the three slimming outfits we came up with using a peplum top.
