After this holiday weekend my brain is in full Summer mode and it is apparent after my colorful shopping trip today. From turquoise to mint, and back around the spectrum I think tangerine exudes the spirit of this time of year.

What is a Peplum? A peplum is essentially ruffled or pleated material that flares out at the waist of a skirt, dress, jacket, or top. Popular in the 1940′s, this cut has made a comeback this year on the runway and red carpet.
Super chic and elegant with a classy vintage vibe, the peplum is a wearable trend for 2012! Choose a more fitted peplum with a cinched waist if you’re curvy. And if your thin or have a strait figure go for a flared one to add some sexy hourglass curves!
If you’d like to try the peplum trend with out breaking the bank, Forever21 has a great one available now for only $17.80!

Here is a collection of some of my favorite pieces:
