Charlize Theron Wears a Hot Spring Trend: The Peplum Dress

Charlize TheronEvery season, I completely ignore a number of trends simply because they're not very realistic for 99.9 percent of us. (Example: leather shorts.)

The peplum dress, though, seems like it was made for moms -- and with celebs like Charlize Theron and Jennifer Aniston sporting them, we now have a way to cover up a typical problem area in style!

'Peplum' is the word for a short, decorative overskirt -- peplum jackets are in right now, too, but I think they're more difficult to pull off than the peplum dress.

The right peplum dress can add hourglass curves, make your waist look smaller, and hide the dreaded 'pooch.'

The New York Times even has a street style slideshow of peplums -- what I love about the style is that women of all sizes are able to rock the look. You can't say that about very many trends ...

Check out some affordable peplum dresses for your closet -- after the jump!
