The Playful Peplum

Alice + Olivia Spring 2012 Line
It seems that women have forgotten how to dress flirty without looking like they roam the corners at the wee hours of the night. Well, for those who have compromised their sexy, yet cute looks, for more tacky and skimpier ones, here is one trend this season that will desperately help you. The waist is one, out of the many very important assets, on a woman's body.  That is why extenuating it with what you wear is a great and simple way to look effortlessly sexy. The Peplum look is a stylish approach to  making your outfit more complimentary to your body. It can be used with dresses, skirts, and tops. A Peplum shows off your shape by sitting naturally on the waist defined by a  short ruffle. This look was seen for a while in the 80s and now it is back and better than ever. After all, I think we can all agree that there are very few trends from that decade that we would like to repeat. Thankfully, the Jerry Curl and parachute pants on the other hand, are not staging a come back any time soon. As for the Peplum look, I can honestly say I'm more than happy to see it making appearances on the waists of women once again.
