Peplum = Muffintop Camo

Do any of you own any Peplum items of clothing? How do they look? I'm wondering if this is the newer hipper tunic...AKA Muffintop camouflage.

Are you sitting there asking yourself WTF is Peplum?
peplum [ˈpɛpləm]
n pl -lums-la [-lə]
1. (Clothing & Fashion) a flared ruffle attached to the waist of a jacket, bodice, etc.
2. (Clothing & Fashion) a variant of peplos
[from Latin: full upper garment, from Greek peplos shawl]

My favorite style icon of the moment (and everyone else's) The Duchess of Cambridge rocked a Peplum just this week...

And how adorable is Emma Stone in this GV peplum dress?




Just look at this cute number from Brooks Brothers of all places....

But what if you are shorter and curvier a-la Scarjo? Is it a no-no?
