Party trends: An autumn peplum perfect for nuptials

When Michelle Williams wowed us with her spectacular red number at the Oscars, she gave a kick start to the peplum trend.

But she's not the only celeb who has recently donned this fantastic style.

Elegant Emma Watson posed in peplum for the London premiere of My Week With Marilyn, and we'll discover loads of peplum in Kim Kardashian's newest Kanye-approved wardrobe.

One reason for its popularity is how it magically widens or narrows the size of your hips through the simple optical illusion that the flirty frill creates. 

The perfect style to attend a wedding, you can choose the length and cut of the draped fabric depending on whether you want to accentuate your curves or flatter your figure

With this trend anyone can re-create the feminine elegance of the Duchess of Cambridge who was seen sporting the look in a dress from Matthew Williamson's Pre-Autumn 2012 collection.

From tops to trousers, use your imagination to create your own look. If you prefer a classic style, go with the pencil skirt dress that gives off just a hint of pin-up sass.

You can also pair form-fitting skirts or slacks with blouses trimmed with wavy ruffles. Show off your legs with mini skirts with a half-frill finish bunched to one side.
