Fashion Trend: Peplums

Tonight I'm mixing my wedding obsession and fashion obsession into one great wedding fashion post!

The peplum first caught my attention at this year's Oscars when it hit the red carpet on these lovely ladies!

The peplum has turned into a fashion staple ever since. For those of you who are unfamiliar, a "peplum" is a flared ruffle attached to the waist of a jacket, dress, bodice, etc. It has infected the style of celebrity glamour, office attire, casual looks, and yes... brides! I think this trend is one that can stand the test of time. If done properly, it looks classic, elegant, and fun! I don't think you will look back at yourself in 10 years and wonder what on earth you were thinking!  

There are a two different styles of peplum bridal gowns:

1. Architectural and elegant:

1234 & 5

2. Romantic and soft:


And for those of you who like the peplum look but aren't bold enough to go all out, here are some subtle options!

Just a baby peplum!

So what do you think? Will you go peplum?
