Or perhaps we should call it, pephem? Nope, we’re not making up words. Pephem is actually short for peplum hem, a new trend that we’re totally gaga for. This means that the frilly peplum we’ve known and loved has actually moved down to the bottom of skirts and dresses now. Crazy, right? While we’ve been digging the original peplum trend, it’s been around for a while, so our dear friends at ASOS decided that enough’s enough.
