Must Have Item - Peplum

Shown on the Fall 2012 RTW and Couture runways, the Peplum silhouette makes it's come back and it's sophisticated and ladylike as ever. The word peplum even sounds polished and poised and that is exactly what this must have item will add to any outfit this season.

                        Warning!!!


This silhouette is gorgeous on most, adding just the right amount of curves to the long-waist ladies and looks even better on the hour-glass figure. BUT beware Short-waist ladies, the peplum silhouette can cut up and distort your figure! The key in wearing this is to keep an eye out where the start to the flare and/or ruffle is on your waist line. Sometimes it is better for the break to happen above or below your natural waist line. This will allow the illusion that your waist is more proportionate and will elongate your silhouette.
