Save or Splurge - Peplum
By Chloë Eve - March 02, 2012
Peplum styles have been shown all over the runway this past season, and now it is becoming a super flirty and ladylike trend for spring. The fabulous thing about this trend is that it can go from casual to dressy, and even be appropriate for a professional look. The exaggerated shape helps fake an hourglass shape, and creates the look of slimmer legs. Must have peplum styles include cocktail dresses, mini skirts, and even shirts. My favorite look is a peplum cocktail dress. This is a style that will definitely turn heads especially in the form of a LBD. I found these two black peplum style cocktail dresses that are perfect for any dressy occasion. I love the simplicity of the Stella McCartney dress as well as the fun gold embellishments on the ASOS dress. Keep jewelry and other accessories simple as the dress can stand out on its own.
Stella McCartney - $875
ASOS - $175.47 (ON SALE!)
Other ways to wear this trend..
Peplum skirts look best when styled with a simple top and a sturdy heels to complement the skirt's bold shape.
This top is super simple to wear and would look chic paired with a streamlined pencil skirt or sleek pants.
