Simply Peplum Fever
LOS ANGELES, CA (BDCi) -- This week I chose the peplum style as our fashion topic, and Kim Kardashian happens to be the celebrity I chose to use as an example. She has been seen around lately wearing this unique style.
The peplum was first featured by Dior in the 1950s. It is a very feminine, fun and romantic also sexy style that can be extremely versatile. The trend was worn by some of the famous actresses of that time.
Half a century later, the peplum is back and designers such as Burberry, Christian Dior and Jason Wuagain have been featuring it back on the catwalks. This year’s runways were filled with the peplum trend.
How about Kim Kardashian? Honestly, she looks great in every single dress, shirt or pants she wears, in my opinion. Not only her, but other celebrities such as Blake Lively and Jenifer Hudson, also love the trend. They all look amazing!
To start today, I would like to share some ideas. I am a big fan of Kim Kardashian’s style. And she is the perfect example of a woman’s figure that will fit all sizes. In summary, you don’t have to be skinny or to have a certain figure to look good in clothing. Seriously!
So, let’s begin. These tips about the trend will give you ladies some helpful idea on whether or not to embrace the style.
Rule that applies for this trend: Since peplum garments are usually tight fitting around the waist and larger on the hips, you must wear something tight on the bottom to give your body the curves it deserves, that way you are able to balance the look.
If you are not sure how it will look on you, start by getting a peplum shirt or dress that can be found at some of the less expensive stores (A list is provided below). It’s a good start. But, if you want to invest a little more money, you can find better quality pieces at department stores such as: Macys, Bloomingdales, and Neiman Marcus, that will give you nicer, but pricier options that might fit your body better!
Where to wear it? You can dress a peplum top for a night out or wear it more casual for an everyday event, like I said before; it’s a really versatile look.
And if you are one of those shoppers that are looking for great deals from other popular brands, I salute you, good job! For the spring and summer 2012, this trend can be found at: Zara, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Express, and Forever 21.
See you guys next week with more fashion tips!
