... if that style consists of a lacy petticoat-like peplum cropped above the crotch.
Today I learn that a peplum has a long and respectable history in women's fashion:
Overskirts may serve various purposes, ranging from protecting the underlying clothing from mud and dirt, to being purely a decorative feature.A Google Image search shows a variety of attractive peplums, but also yielded this example of "flirty femininity" -
Overskirts first came into fashion during the Victorian Era in 1867, after the pre-hoop and hoop periods of multiple petticoats and crinoline, and before the bustle period... Early skirts were often looped up for walking, showing a pretty petticoat underneath, which led to the introduction of the overskirt.
The term "peplum" originates with the ancient Greek peplos, a women's garment that had the same decorative detail as an overskirt.
I'll defer any further comments...
