The Peplum trend has been popping up -- or rather, flaring out -- all over the runway this season and you're sure to find shirts and dresses with these short overskirts at any major department store. They come in a variety of styles, so there is a peplum for every body type. What do you think of this trend? Are peplums hot or not?

    Mostly dumb looking! Just designers stretching out to find another way to suck bucks from women.

    Love the peplum. It has been around several times and am glad it re-appeared. Can be flattering on the right bodies.

    I always liked them. As I think back on some of my favorites, they had peplums. I wish I were that skinny again when I wore them well. They really showed off the waist line.

    Welcome back to the late forties and early fifties. Standard style back then for the fashionista crowd. The more things change, the more they remain the same.

    Not crazy about it. Wasn't that the fashion back in the 40's ? Seems like I've seen that in old family photos.

    I hated them when they were in style years ago and I still hate them. However, I do like the dresses that Scarlet and Rianna are wearing. The other two are ugly!!!! They make most people look heavier than they are.

    Unfortunately, it accentuates an area that most women want to hide. We do not want to be HUGE in the hips.

    Sculptural clothing CAN be cool if don't in a way where the shoulders are accented or a little tiny flair here and there.....but a total hip flare. NO way!

    Just another fad. I think it makes the hips look big.

    I love this look. It is classy and elegant, but you can dress it down or up. The most important thing is it hides the dreadful baby pouch. Oh, ladies, you know the one I speak of.

    There are different styles of peplums and I do not think you have shown the best. I have a pattern that is very elegant. It is a long straight skirt and the peplum on the top/coat falls long and pointed in the back and tapers off to quite a bit smaller in front.

    I dislike it, it looks like a random bunch of fabric that was tucked into a mini skirt upon another skirt.
    Looks kind of silly and pointless to me.

    It answers the all-time question, “Do I look fat in this” the answer is “YES”.

    Women with wide shoulders actually WANT their hips to look wider, that is the point of the peplum.

    I preface that with "on the right body". Least we forget the hippos in Fantasia. Then its not so hot.

    it actually looks rather cool...not hot... aerodynamically speaking, it would catch a lot of up drafts.

    It can be hot, if done well, it also very much depends on the body of the person wearing it...

    Skinny hourglasses can wear absolutely anything, but peplum works well on athletic and top heavy builds too.

    The peplum excels at visually enlarging your butt, hips and belly. Ugh.

    Love. This is a great style for almost any woman. It brings in the waist and extends the hip giving you an hourglass look. Beautifully classy.

    It's a nice style.. great for accenting that waist if it's small.. and hiding if you're a little wide in the hips..so it has a great purpose and it's hot!!!
