Showing up on wedding runways everywhere are peplum dresses! If you haven’t seen this trend it is basically an overskirt or ruffle attached to the waist of a dress. This girly ultra feminine look is the newest trend in wedding fashion for 2013.
For wedding dresses this “overskirt” can be small like ruffles or large and more dramatic in size. Designers are using tulle, silk organza, lace or even feathers to create this smaller skirt.
My favorite addition to a peplum wedding gown is a sparkly or colored bridal belt to help define the waistline.
The trend doesn’t stop with wedding dresses! Peplum bridesmaids dresses are becoming increasingly popular turning a simple silhouette in to something fashion forward.
I especially like peplum dresses for brides as a second “getaway” dress. These short peplum dresses make an all white dress look classy and sophisticated.
If you are a bold bride, try a peplum dress with a splash of color on the top or bottom.
I realize this trend probably isn’t for every bride. If you enjoy pushing the edge in bridal fashion and want a dress that is fashion forward peplum dresses might be the perfect choice for you!
