Believe it—there is a peplum wedding dress out there perfectly tailored to your body shape and bridal style. The key to nailing this trendiest of fashion trends, then, is in finding the right proportion, be it oversize and asymmetrical, sleek and simple, or cropped and airy. For Spring 2013, designer Amsale Aberra led the runway charge toward fashion-conscious shapes, showing multiple peplums in both structured and delicately draped shapes. Most, while voluminous, hugged rather than projected away from the hips for an elegantly understated effect.
