2012 Spring Trend: Peplum

          While the rest of the world complains about  the harsh weather and counting the days till spring comes around again, us fashionistas eagerly await for the new trends of the spring season. With all the interesting trends coming this season why not begin with the by far the most interested one in my eyes- the peplum dress/skirt.

          This 40's and 80's fashion with a cinched waist has resurface once again (like many things do) and has been seen on the runways and on celebrities. The peplum gives off a retro, flirty, elegant, feminine vibe that it is no wonder how popular it is becoming. Not something one could wear everyday, but it is something that would look great on special occasions.

Tips on How to Wear a Peplum:
          Wearing a Peplum piece can be a very daunting thing to do, especially to those who don't take many fashion risks. But never fear, there are tips to help you feel more comfortable.

          1) Proportion:  If you don't proportion it correctly the whole outfit could come out looking wrong instead of  giving you the hourglass shape it is meant to give you. So remember  the key to rocking a peplum piece is to have it tailored to balance out the bulk of the major ruffle.

          2) Minimal Accessories: Because a peplum will most likely be the statement piece I recommend go easy on the jewelry and accessories. If you are not quite sure what to put on a good rule to follow is to chose a great bag/clutch, some killer heels, pretty bracelet, and earrings.

          3) Chose Elegant Colors: If you aren't ready for bright colors and patterns the best way to go is by wearing beautiful, rich elegant colors like black, burgundy, plum, creme, white, navy, and emerald. If you are hoping to look slimmer the deeper the color is the slimmer you will look.

          4) Cinched Waist: To grab more attention to your waist add a pretty belt to your outfit to give you a hourglass shape.

A pretty and classy way to wear this look.
           I personally like this trend, it gives a nice silhouette but what do you think of this trend? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know in the comments below, and follow my blog, twitter, and Polyvore.
