SS2012 Trend - The Peplum

The Peplum was a key shape on the SS2012 runways. Flaring out from jackets, tops and skirts, peplums are brilliant for creating the illusion of a narrower waist.


Styling tip: Keep the silhouette narrower everywhere else to ensure that the hourglass silhouette does not get hidden.

Body Shape

The peplum is brilliant for rectangle and inverted triangle body shapes (i.e. straight up and down, athletic shapes), because it makes the waist look narrower and gives the illusion of more curves. The peplum can also work on a pear shape (larger hips than shoulders) as long as they choose styles that flare out from the waist (see picture above), rather than the hips. A light coloured peplum top with a dark trouser or skirt would work well for a pear to highlight their slimmer top half and minimise the lower portion. The peplum will also work well for the hourglass as it will emphasise their curvy silhouette. Apple body shapes need to beware as a peplum will just add bulk to their middle which is something that they should try to avoid.

Well spotted! The peplum would have been perfect for Kate as it will have made her athletic shape look more curvy.

In my opinion for working Trending, sites are much more profitable than that of non-trending websites. I have observed there have always been new trends, they are changing day by day, and therefore they have the most updated site.

Trending the peplum flaring out from jackets as well and improving illusion of a narrower waist and more styling tip. The inverted triangle and improving the minimize the lower portion for should try to avoid.
