Keeping up with trends and fashions season after season can be exhausting and very difficult. Especially when those trends you see coming down the runway every other show are not exactly your cup of tea. That is definitely how I felt seeing all of the peplum style tops, skirts and dresses on the runway during f/w ’12 fashion week. It took me a while to warm up to this trend but now I can’t get enough of it! If Jason Wu, Peter Som and Zac Posen are all suggesting this trend then it is worth a shot!
This Fashionista had no problem diving on into the fashion forward peplum trend! I love that she was able to dress down this shirt and skirt with a pair of flat sandals for a more casual everyday outfit. The metallic “not quite leather” look of her top is perfect for fall. The belt she added to the top was also a great touch to add some color to her monochromatic ensemble.
Forever 21 is way ahead of this trend and has a ton of different peplum tops, dresses and skirts all perfected to your liking. My personal favorite is this cutout metallic peplum tank. Pair it with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, and you’re ready to hit the fall street style runways!
