But the modern day peplum cocktail dress is simply a small 'tutu' style image added to the bottom of jackets, shirts, or at the waist of dresses and skirts. It’s a short, flared, and perhaps ruffled piece of material which creates the 'tutu' style.

Why Should I Wear Peplum Dresses?

In short, because they are hot stuff in the fashion world right now! Recently made popular by Victoria Beckham, Blake Lively, and Beyonce amongst others, it's a style that can be worn formally and casually.
