Peplum: New Hot Fall/ Winter 2011/ 2012 Trend

If someone told me peplum was to become a trend again I would laugh at his face because so many times we were reminded of the ideal woman’s figure that was pretty skinny. But time and tastes change and now we see this voluminous detail both on n the red carpet and on the runway.

While some women would do nearly everything to get rid of those extra inches on their hips others seem to be acting in the most ridiculous way by adding volume to the area. Well, they are not crazy. They just follow the newest and hottest trend of the approaching fashion season (Fall/ Winter 2011/2012). They wear peplums.


Peplums, which were very popular in the 80s of the last century, have been almost forgotten considering the fact vogue has loved skinny girls for over 30 years. Now with the growing interest in healthy size shapes women are no longer afraid of looking a little bigger (with no extremes, of course!) and that brings a natural revival of peplums.

Modern peplums are restrained regarding the silhouette but they can be as colorful as those ladies liked rocking in the 20s century. Beware of too much volume but go daring if you like color. You can try the safer hues or even neutrals.

Pair your peplum with a pencil skirt and a clinging top for a slim look. And avoid noticeable accessories to focus attention on the trendy detail.
The best way to demonstrate the power of the trend is to show you celebrities wearing it. And if stars wear something, we will definitely see the same things on non-celebrity fashionistas soon. Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Nicole Kidman, Liv Tyler are just a few of those who adopted the hot trend into their wardrobes.
