Peplum Parade

Today as I headed out to run some adult errands, I wanted to look trendy but professional. I thought the red peplum tiered skirt, that’s been getting no action, would be a good starting point. This is what I came up with…

Skirt, H&M
Shirt, BikBok
Sunglasses, Emporio Armani
Shoes, exē

I love these peplum-influenced designs from the Resort 2013 shows:

Prabal Gurung, Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, Lanvin

The peplum parade continued on the Fall 2012 Couture runways:

Ulyana Sergeenko, Bouchra Jarrara, Chanel, Giambattista Valli

Whether it’s a peplum blouse, jacket, skirt or dress, here’s how you can incorporate the trend for under $100!

1. Miss Selfridges, $82
2. Oasis, $55
3. River Island, $44
4. Ally Fashion, $15

DRANTS; Dresses-over-pants

Together or separate, you decide what works for you, but the drant (or dress-over-pant) is not going away any time soon. 

We saw these back in February 2012 at New York Fashion Week: 

Helmut Lang, Rag and Bone, Rebecca Taylor

Then again on the Resort 2013 runways: 

BCBG, Louis Vuitton, Roksanda Ilincic

So it should come as no surprise that the dresses over pants made yet another appearance on the Fall 2012 Couture runway. With the long anticipated collection from Raf Simons, Christian Dior’s Fall 2012 Couture show in Paris certainly showcased elements of the trend: 

Christian Dior Couture

Still not convinced? Think of it as a long tunic over leggings or pants. 

So what will it be for you; together or separate?

Resort Trending 2013: Tribal Princess

Among the array of patterns that made an appearance on the runways of Resort 2013, the tribal patterns are one of my favorites. Whether it be animal prints or more native looking motives, the tribal trend brings color, life, and, a wild edge that no other trend can bring. 

Here are some of my favorites from the runway:

Peter Pilotto, Diane Von Furstenberg, Versace

Peter Pilotto, Moschino, BCBG
