Fall Fashion Trends: Peplum and Mustard

By Silhouettes1 · July 18, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Even though we’re in the middle of a hot summer, fashion has already moved on to fall and winter looks. I was just breezing through some photos of upcoming fall fashion trends, one of which is “peplum.”  I’d heard this word before, but had no idea exactly what it was…so of course I investigated!

Turns out peplum is a “short overskirt or ruffle attached at the waistline of a jacket, blouse, or dress.”

Not my favorite look, just because my hips don’t need any more ruffles or overskirts attached to them for emphasis.  But for women who are bigger on top, a peplum jacket can help balance everything out.

Mustard (the color, not the condiment) is another fall fashion look that’s hitting the runways.  Get your summer tans now…mustard is a color that works best on darker skin (too pale and it will wash you out). If you’re feeling  the mustard thing, check out something like this wrinkle-resistant plus-size shirt.  Comfortable and easy-wearing, plus it comes in a variety of colors.

If you don’t think mustard is your color, you can still work it in to your wardrobe with shoes. Shoes are great way to wear colors you like but that don’t necessarily work well with your skin tone. These cute peep-toes in mustard are both stylish looking and come in one of fall’s hottest shades!
