Trend Alert: Pretty in Peplum

Peplums - super chic, polished, a little sexy and a bit daunting.  They look fabulous with a slim pencil skirt or narrow pants.  They flatter many figures by creating an hourglass silhouette that is very feminine and fresh, while enhancing curves or hiding flaws.  

In other words... you need to add this to your wardrobe this Fall.  Consider the peplum a must have.  The peplum jacket or top will fit in with any woman's existing wardrobe (we all own a pencil skirt or a pair of slim cut pants or jeans).  Plus, due to the drama the peplum creates, you need to keep a minimalistic approach.  Therefore, not much else is needed... except for a killer pair of heels.

Lanvin's Fall 2012 RTW show presented us with a few ah-mah-zing looks...

Bergdorf's also gives us some fab ideas for styling the peplum... albeit very high end ideas, but inspiring all the same.

Now that you are completely infatuated with this look (I know I am), we just have to find one at a reasonable price point.  Well, I found some cool shots from Ann Taylor's Fall Collection courtesy of Glamour.com...

And, Anthropolgie has this very cute Ponte Peplum Tank in a variety of colors...

As well as the very chic Fustanelle Jacket...

As the peplum trend continues, I will keep you posted with other fabulous tops, jackets and dresses as I come across them.  Until then, happy shopping!
