Peplum Party.

Peplum what??  That's what I thought when I first discovered this trend but oh how I have began to embrace it.  Such a sassy look!!  The peplum is essentially a large ruffle or frill attached to a fitted dress, skirt, or jacket near the waist.  This look could not scream 1980's yearbook any louder, but this spring and summer it is taking on a whole new meaning.

This look is surprisingly easy to wear.  The peplum looks best with a fitted skirt or ultra snug skinnies.  The ruffle flatters the tummy and accentuates that booty!

Take a look at the peplum party happening on the catwalk this S/S 2012:

(from left to right):  Jason Wu. Alexander McQueen. Giles. Vera Wang.

Isn't that Jason Wu look just dreamy?  If only.  Below are a few peplum looks for less!
