The peplum; It’s a dress with a short skirt-like overlay or ruffle sewn at the waistline that became a popular look on the bridal runway this year. It’s an ultra-feminine and fashion-forward trend that creates a curvaceous silhouette on the bride. Peplum gowns come in a number of different fabrics and styles. Here, a few of our favorites.
