Peplums (or short overskirts) have been an increasingly popular detail for the past few seasons. During this bridal market, several designers created styles with exaggerated peplums for a modern look.

Take a clean, simple gown, add a peplum, and voila! You’ve got quite a style statement. We like how this Legends by Romona Keveza gown keeps things flattering by adding a beaded belt at the smallest part of the waist.

The new Amsale collection featured several gowns with peplums, but this one was our favorite. The mixing of fabrics keeps things super-feminine, yet contemporary, all at once.

A super-modern look from Angel Sanchez (right) – we could imagine a bride rocking this architectural dress at an art gallery or loft wedding.
