Peplum Pants

Finally! How did we live without peplums on our pants? Now all my pants look so drab and minimalist.

“A flounced peplum puts a ladylike touch on a pair of high-waisted alice + olivia pants, cut from figure-hugging mid-weight jersey. Exposed back zip.” $275

Wouldn’t they look great on a job interview, or a first date?

    Really?

    Totally hideous.

    $275? For something looking like my old miniskirt from the seventies, put over my black winter tights? A ladylike touch? I think wrapping a tea towel around my waist would be more ladylike. I’ll file it under “Clinically Insane Designers”, together with Jona’s sheepskin rug.

    Leggings arent pants.

  5. Andra Says:

    Leggings with an ice-skater’s skirt thrown over the top.
    Really indeed!

  6. Darque Says:

    The style is so ridiculous I could only picture it on Kris Jenner, since she is prone to roller derby fashion. But the price. The price!

    $275 for this crap is freaking CRIMINAL.

    Uh … no.

    Very cute, so long as you haven’t eaten anything substantial in the past 12 months.

    Anything that will result in a little less ass-crack on the street (I am sick of women wearing leggings as pants, skinny or not) is fine. Even if it is a dippy peplum.

    Jeez, the size of my ass, if I wore that get-up it would look like I’d stuck an opened golf umbrella handle-down into my pants.

    Ooooh! I love it. Like a little pinny apron to cover up my not-quite-complete sex change.

  12. Bonnie Says:

    I keep trying to think of when I would wear these and I’m coming up blank. Possibly the most pointless garment ever. Is it me or is the word peplum really annoying?

    i don’t like peplums, but that isn’t a good peplum.
    at least “peplum” is fun to say. pe-PLUM. peeeeplooom. pep. plum.

    Jane was just a regular waitress apron in a small Wheatfield, Indiana diner. All day long she was being smeared with meatloaf and pie. But she had big dreams. So one day she got herself a new do and rode the greyhound all the way to the big city. She started shopping at sample sales. The Sartorialist saw her one day and snapped her picture and put it on his website. The designer at alice + olivia saw it and said, “I must have this apron!”

    And the rest is history.

    I didn’t know where to put this comment, but since you’re into strange looking models, I must share my astonishment at stumbling upon this at ASOS:
