Dorothy Perkins "Peplum trend" Spring 2012

Have you ever heard of Dorothy Perkins?

This brand was established over  90yrs ago and is nowone of the biggest fashion retailers in the UK. With sizes ranges from 2-18 (yes size 18), this line is afforable, feminine and very classy. One thing that is very chic about this collection is that Perkins enhances the peplum trend in a good way not making it to large or to small. What is peplum? its a ruffle or mini-skirt attached to the waist of a skirt, top or dress. Here are some tips on how to wear peplum.........

Tips to Wear the Peplum Trend

  • A little timid with wearing anything that protrudes from your midsection? Start with a blouse that does not flare out too much or a dress with small peplum inserts.
  • Wear your peplum top with a fitted skirt or bottom to play off the proportions and to give play up your curves!
  • Feeling Vampy? Lace, florals, and strategic color will emphasize your bustline, minimize the waistline, and maximize the hips!
  • A Peplum dress can be one of the easiest entries into wearing this trend should you be timid! Subtle peplum details won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed by the trend!
  • Wearing a peplum skirt? Pair with a fitted top to show them what you are working with!
