Divas – fashion trends change every single day..,, in fact every second. Some trends we may not all like to conform to, but many of us would love to achieve some catwalk-friendly pieces at a discounted price!
Peplum a funny name in itself, has been splashed all over the net as well as various magazine covers and shoots! Peplum suits a petite to curvy frame – with the centre piece adding curves and gives a plain dress a structured look. Reminiscent of the futuristic trend that was around a while back! Whilst searching the net for divine peplum pieces, I discovered this on sale beauty from New Look for a remarkable £12 from a staggering £39 ! Bargain or what shopaholics..?!!
Gorgeous is the only word that springs to mind.. this nude ensemble combined with a bright red, brings to prominence the Peplum design and adds curves in all the right places. Undeniably a look which is here to stay on the high street, this piece can be worn alongside tanned or nude heels alongside a glitzy clutch to complete the look What I love about the Peplum dress or skirt is that you can make it a day and night look how fab is that dolls?
These beauties are from Office and are priced at £80 – I know a bit steep for some (remember recession), but there are different high street stores where you can purchase exact replicas.. ssshh don’t say I don’t help you!!
Another Peplum beauty I discovered a Rare dress on ASOS priced at a brilliant £49
What attracted to me this dress was the rich luminous canary yellow – don’t you just love? When I rotated the picture the dress had an open plunging back which enhanced the beauty of the dress from behind! A classic pair of black wedges will tone the outfit down in a sense!
This black classic studded wedge back taken from the “Kardashian Kollection” range is perfect for the outfit – giving that vava voom!
My celebrity Peplum spotting radar has been in full effect, and I have noted that most celebrities are now customising their Peplum looks to suit their individual styles.
Take a look at the lovely Beyonce recently on a trip to the U.K in this colour blocking Victoria Beckham Peplum piece..
Here Bey wears minimal makeup, however sports a curly fro which effectively contributes to her makeup less face… She chose the natural look and I love it! Her orange knee length peplum dazzles with a higher waistline… She teams this with white heels which effectively pays homage to colour blocking. Well done Bey! In friendly compliment (me thinks) Lady Gaga recently sported the same outfit as Beyonce – uh oh do we see a diva squabble coming along hehe.. Let’s take a look at Gaga
Gaga puts her divaish flair to the outfit by wearing white statement accessories… Her gloves, sunglasses, pearl earrings and Christian Louboutin pumps bring to prominence the beautiful tangerine dress!! Both Divas look amazing in their colour blocking ensembles..!
Moving on from the Peplum trend, we have the emerging scarf print.. Scarf prints started on scarfs obviously – making their marks on handbags and as headwear to add flair to any outfit. This is a trend every Diva is guaranteed to enjoy and indulge in!
Take a look at Paloma Faith a few months ago stunning in vintage scarf print!
Paloma mixes the colours well in this outfit. Her divine red vintage bag alongside a Chanel-esque cardi and scarf uniquely tied onto her head.. Vintage chic Divas!!
The vintage scarf trend is imitated on the high street adding a classy touch to any outfit!
This Asos scarf print plunging neckline is priced at £35, a great look for the summer.. You can accompany this look with a camisole if you’re shy. For the daring divas you can wear this look with a decent pair of wedges.. Or a glitzy stiletto!
This Dorothy Perkins silk print dress is subtle with the black.. but the blue parts to the dress adds character and interest, also the v-neck and clingy material gives a sexy silhouette for a night out with the girls just for £24!
This saucy Topshop medallion, bodycon piece is sooo gorgeous..ahh I so wish Topshop could ship to Nigeria with next day delivery *sighs*.. This beauty can be accompanied with a pair of pumps or sandals for a festival girly look or a pair of show stopping heels! Head to Topshop.com now lovelies!
