Trend Alert: Peplum Is Still in For Fall!

Jason Wu

It doesn’t look like we’re going to be rid of the peplum trend any time soon, and I'm OK with it sticking around- I especially love how it hides a belly.  After a while though, every trend needs some refreshing.  For Fall '13 Alice + Olivia, Michael Kors and Jason Wu gave the trend a more modern and streetwise twist with peplum looks in leather, lace, and tweed.  This season, we're even seeing peplum PANTS!

Below are my tips for wearing this trend.

Peplum TOPS vs Peplum BOTTOMS? Tops are easier to pull off and mix with an infinite number of outfits.  They've been tied to so many looks from maxi skirts to midi skirts to mini skirts, trousers and shorts. Peplum tops have a bit more versatility than bottoms and if you choose a super statement one – like a leather peplum top (this one’s on my list) you’ll be sure to get your use out of it, just because it goes with absolutely everything for any time of the day & night.  My favorite looks are with ankle zip skinny jeans or a pencil skirt!

 And then there are the Peplum DRESSES, which are a dime a dozen: from red carpet super glamorous ones to cocktail knee-length designs and even office/day attire styles. Peplum dresses are all about class and timeless sophisticated style.  And what’s there not to love? A proper well designed peplum will give you a free card to eat all you want at a dinner party and hide it away! GENIUS! Don’t know about you, but I’m sold.
