Spring Trend 2012-The Pretty Peplum

Giorgio Armani Spring 2012

The peplum is big for Spring 2012. Peplums are so feminine and  when worn correctly can add shape to your figure in all the right places. The key to making the peplum work for you is by picking the perfect peplum for your individual figure. (Say that last line three times fast)! Here are a few tips and tricks to consider when picking out your peplum:

1. There are two different types of peplums: Fitted and flared. Fitted is the perfect peplum for the hourglass shape. A fitted style cinches in at the waist and accents your curves to the utmost.

A flared peplum is a much more pronounced version and “flares”(hence the term) from the waist. This style is perfect for the woman with hips that are too small in proportion to the rest of her figure.  (Yes-there are actually women out there with hips that are too small).

2. If you’re suspect of sporting this look try a peplum made in a knit or a very flowing fabric. Also consider peplums in a darker color or small print).

3. Peplums that sit higher above the waist (Giorgio Armani photo) are a sneaky way to hide a little extra weight in the tummy area).

4. For all those women that need some extra padding in the bottom half of your figures try a peplum that flares out from the waist.

5. FIT is the absolute key for making this look work for you. There is nothing worse that a peplum that puckers or pulls… because it’s too tight.

    Most of the things you articulate is supprisingly precise and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. This piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this issue goes.
