Shop the Trend – Peplum
Peplum. It was big in the 80′s. It’s HUGE for 2012. Dresses, skirts, tops and jackets are all are all sporting the ruffled piece of fabric at the waist. Worn correctly, this trend can give you that much sought-after hourglass shape. Opt for fitted, tailored pieces and avoid very gathered peplums unless you’re tall for the most flattering look.

Celebs fond of the peplum trend include Gwen Stefani (pictured below in Stella McCartney) and Kim Kardashian. In fact, it’s rare to see Kim in anything else these days when you page through the glossies and scroll through the webpages.
