Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, Pippa Middleton and More Stars Looking Pretty in Peplums: Trendspotting

Kim's Peplum Look
See how Kim Kardashian styled her peplum frock.
Pretty in pink? More like pretty in peplum!

The peplum trend is here to stay for fall, and everyone from Pippa Middleton to Emma Stone and Jessica Simpson have been spotted in the waist-cinching style.

But the peplum’s biggest fan? 

Kim Kardashian. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 31, has been spotted on multiple occasions in peplum tops and frocks — proof that curvy girls shouldn’t shy away from this trend.

More proof of the peplum’s slimming powers: Recall what it did for new mom Jessica Simpson, 32, who chose a black peplum dress for her first post-baby body appearance on Katie Couric’s new show. Though the Fashion Star judge admitted to Couric that she hadn’t lost all the baby weight, her black peplum frock hid the evidence in style.

To pull off this trend, just take a cue from its famous fans:

Though extra fabric around the hips can draw attention to the hips, as Kim demonstrates time and time again, this extra waist ruffle can be incredibly flattering. Just pair a peplum top with form-fitting pieces that accentuate her tiny waist and hourglass figure.

For extra-slimming power, follow Middleton’s and Simpson’s lead and stick to darker solids like black or navy when rocking a peplum style.

For a fashion-forward look, try a print like Middleton, another big peplum supporter, wore to accompany her sister Kate to Wimbledon. Or stick to solids and jump on the color-blocking bandwagon like Blake Lively, 25, did in a black-and-white peplum dress. Just stick to darker hues on bottom for the most flattering effect.
