If you haven’t been hiding under a rock for the past couple months then you know that the peplum trend is nothing short of exploding in the fashion world. Dresses and skirts with those ruffles around the waistline are being seen everywhere from the runways to the city streets. Rocking the peplum trend is super easy and can be a daytime or nighttime look! It is a silhouette that can be worn by all body types, so NO backing out!
Peplum was a big hit on the runway, especially in dresses, and we hope it’s here to stay! This trend is a very crisp look, with simple, clean cuts and very feminine (Antonio Berardi’s dress-middle). Peplum dresses are very versatile, but prints (Zac Posen’s dress) and rich colors (Lavin’s bright red dress) add a little extra va-va-voom!
Many celebrities have been spotted showing off their curves in peplum dresses. What we love about this trend is that it incorporates other trends as well like neon, cut-outs, and prints. The grey peplum dress (as seen on three different women) works for different body types and is worn as both a daytime and red carpet look.
Keep the jewelry simple, rock a stellar high heel, and show off that peplum! Here are some of our favorite picks:
Peplum skirts are another way to wear this trend and celebrities have also jumped on the bandwagon and tried it out. Blake Lively, looking chic as always, pairs an embroidered black peplum skirt with a crisp white top. Emma Stone (middle) looks fun and flirty in a bright pink peplum skirt and deep red top, and Michelle Williams wears a polka dot peplum skirt making her look ever so sweet and innocent!
Paired with a tank or femininely cut top, this look is also great for day and night! If you’re opting for a plain colored skirt, go for a top with a print or fun color to give your outfit a pop!
