Fall/Winter 2012 Fashion Trend: Peplum Tops
If you haven't noticed the peplum trend lately then you've been living under a rock! While peplum skirts and dresses were all the range this past Spring and Spring, this Fall and Winter it is all about the peplum top. (Above: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Bottega Veneta; Elie Tahari; Elizabeth and James.) The trick to wearing this trend is to wear something without volume on the bottom like skinny jeans or a pencil skirt since the pepulm adds volume on top. Plus, if the peplum ruffle is too girly for you, consider getting the top in an edgier fabric like leather.
