Finds On A Dime: Playful Peplums

Fountain of 30

November 5, 2012 • Finds On A Dime, Magazine

Season after season the peplum trend returns and it does yet again for fall 2012. This ultra lady-like look was seen all over the runway at Jason Wu, Tory Burch, Peter Som and a slew of other designers for Fall 2012.

To wear this trend without looking like a slave to fashion, let your peplum play center stage while the rest of your ensemble remains minimal, tailored and streamlined. 

A foolproof way to rock this trend is with the peplum dress. An all-in-one look, take note from celebs like Blake Lively, Jennifer Hudson and Emma Stone. Remember less is more; style this frock with minimal jewels and a sweet, classic pump.

Kick your button-ups to the back of your closet and instead opt for a peplum blouse – perfect for work or play! Simple, sleek and sophisticated you can’t go wrong teaming your peplum top with slim dress pants for a modern business style.

For that instant va-va-voom silhouette select a peplum pencil skirtPaired with a form fitted top this look is best suited for an evening out on the town. For you daring fashionistas kill two trends with one ensemble by color blocking your top and peplum skirt.

A curve-accenting look, the peplum is the perfect combination of structured and soft creating the loveliest silhouette flattering all figures.

    The effect of playful peplums can be moderated with a little due dilegence. Thanks for your sharing. Great job Elise.
