Peplums. Sounds like a cross between two delicious and nutritious produce varieties. But it's actually a very cute article of clothing that everyone looks good in - even you. Don't think so? Here's some good news: Science has proven that you can pull off a peplum! Well, ok. Technically "Science" hasn't proven that everyone can pull off a peplum, because over at "science" they're busy with cancer, space exploration, and the zika virus. But because I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in English, you can go ahead and quote this article as scientific research to all your gal pals, or your man who insists peplums are for women who can't move past the 80's.
