Pretty in Peplums

Want to be ahead of the trends this spring?  Then plan to add a few pretty peplums to your wardrobe.  We are seeing this shape, ruffles and jutted hip tabs turning up everywhere from the spring runways to the red carpet (thank you Michelle Williams...in Louis Vuitton coral perfection at the 2012 Academy Awards!).

Always a mark of femininity, a peplum is, by definition, a "flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a women's jacket, dress or blouse to create a hanging frill or flounce."  With flowers, prints (and neon galore), we are loving this additional waistline detail.  Will you embrace this girly trend of the season or keep to the classic pencil skirt?


  1. I'm planning to embrace it at some point. Love the pretty peplum!

  2. My body style does not allow me to embrace it yet; however, I do appreciate it on those that can wear it ;-)
