Since making its debut on the S/S ’12 catwalk, the peplum trend has grown in popularity and established itself as a must-have trend for this season. Cinching in at the waist and flaring out at the hips, this trend flatters any shape and size – those with a petite or rectangular body type will benefit from the illusion of curves whilst those with an hourglass figure will benefit from a more defined waist.
Peplum options are everywhere and different styles pop up every month – from skirts, dresses, tops to jackets, the possibilities are endless. To keep this trend fresh and exciting, try wearing peplum in some of the other 2013 trends. Add some edge to your outfit with a leather peplum skirt; go chic with a printed peplum top or trendy with a peplum dress in different textures and fabrics.
With exciting options and the guarantee of flattering any body type, peplum is a trend everyone should give into this season. Don’t be afraid to play with textures and prints and make this trend your own.
