Today, I was inspired by the dominate silhouette’s at Milan Fashion Week. There’s also a very strong Victorian feel in Milan. The pieces are beautifully crafted with just the right embellishments. Milan Fashion Week is taking on the cocooning trend (here), but they’re also highlighting two silhouettes of their own. The two trends for Fall 2012 are corsets and peplums. The corsets (above) give the woman an extra sense of sex appeal, playing off the Victorian vibe. I like how each of these corsets have different shapes and details to fit three different styles. For Milan’s peplum trend (below), it’s all in the hips. Whether they’re giving the illusion of a peplum (below on left) or they’ve added the extra ruffle of fabrics (below in middle and on right), the look is strong. These two silhouettes are going to be very prominent for the feminine fall looks. Don’t forget to enter my giveaway this week (here)!
Which is your favorite of the two: corsets or peplums?
