Pretty In Peplum

Whether you are off to the movies for date night, grabbing lunch with an old friend or hosting a fabulous party, looking pretty in peplum in the way to go. Fashionista's around the world have modeled  gorgeous figures in the shockingly slimming silhouette. Below are some ways to rock peplum and of course the best places to buy yourself some sexiness.

Lady Gaga shows off her goods on tour in New Zealand. She dazzles in this gorgeous orange and accessorizes perfectly with white sunnies, gloves and heels. Paws up, Mother Monster!

Freida Pinto gets leggy at a premiere in this bright neon gown. Her hair is beautifully tied back in a pony tail while she handles a sparkly gold clutch and owns some amazing heels.

Pretty Little Liars star, Lucy Hale shimmers in this peplum mini. I adore the color of her frock with her soft brown waves. She completes the ensemble with nude heels and a handbag. You deserve to get an A, literally. 

Kim Kardashian looks slim and petite in this peplum white blouse. She accompanies it with black leggings, a black tote and silver bracelets. Way to go Kimmie!

Peplum Fail!

Unlike the photo above, Kim looks heavier and less fantastic here. The key to wearing peplum is knowing how to wear it on your body. While Kanye may want Kim to dress more provocatively (he clearly does not understand a woman's body), with a shape like Kim, you have to be careful. Kimmie already owns a yummy body, trying to dress sexier will only make her look tacky and trashy (most of the time, not always). This specific outfit has a lot going on. With her cleavage hanging out for the world to see, which makes her top half look larger, and her peplum-filled midsection, making Kim's hips look wider, this provides a fuller look from top to bottom. If you have a larger chest make sure to cover up like she did in the photo above and go for a simple-filled peplum midsection, making you look thinner but still just as gorge!
