RUFFLE POWER - PEPLUMS continue to rule the trend!


If you didn't notice enough Peplum in Spring/Summer'12 then Fall'12 won't let it pass by you easily so if you haven't tried it yet. Lay your hands on it now! 

Some of you might be wonde

ring what is Peplum - It is a short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, or blouse.

Here's an advise that I picked up from a fellow fashion blogger which I think is worth sharing: "Peplums come in all kinds of silhouettes. There are various shapes and sizes, like frilly and ruffled or stiff and architectural. Some peplums are so small they’re barely noticeable, while others are the only thing that anyone will notice. And, in theory, there is a peplum style that will look great on you, by camouflaging your fat tush or balancing out your top-heaviness. The trick is to find the right type of peplum that flares out in just the right spot (where you’re the skinniest) and ends at just the right spot (so you’re not drawing attention to your least favorite area)."

I have to admit at first I was not a big fan of Peplum. I thought it is kind of silly looking sillhouette however after trying the studded black top (in the photo) from Mango I was completely bowled over.

Zara also has a great collection of leather, stoned and embroidered peplum tops. However be prepared to see them out of stock as they're sold out like hot cakes.
