Dianna Agron, Kim Kardashian, Kate Middleton, Olivia Wilde and Victoria Beckham are just some of the gorgeous ladies that have been seen rocking the hottest peplum frocks.

With the fall season approaching, this is definitely a style that many women can wear. Looking like a lady is fun again -- consider this attractive look "dress-up for adults." Think polished, sophisticated and lady-like. The variations in the design of the dresses, including the cuts and fabrics make them quite stylistically interesting. This flattering silhouette is undoubtedly sexy and you can easily with the addition of accessories add allure. Retro-looks were seen all over the runways from designers such as Alice and Olivia to more budget friendly brands such as bebe.

Style Guide: Fashionable Essentials for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is almost here and with it comes parties, barbecues, beach time, and lots, and lots, of fun activities. Now we just need to figure out what to wear! Whether you're hitting the Hamptons, Cape Cod, or Miami you'll need great style. Here are a few great summery essentials we love that include trends of the season from floral prints, to white, bright, and color blocking. It’s time to start packin’!

Clutch or Bag- That is the question!

Whether it is an all weekend event, or a couple hours for the day, make your choice of handbag accordingly. We love these summery styles as the blue and white stripe clutch by Rag & Bone shows a little nautical spirit, and Club Monaco’s Goldie Moroccan Bag has that beachy feel to it with the wicker weave and the gold-dipped bottom.

Top Trends of the Moment

While the ditzy girly-girl type may get on our nerves from time to time, her style is all the rage right now. Over-dramatized ruffles, bows, and ribbons, demure colors, and baby doll silhouettes are at the top of our wish lists. Carven's tulip-skirt jumpers, round-collared blouses, and bow adorned heels are the perfect definition of girly-girl style. You'll find plenty of frilly layers and soft colors among the designs of Alice + Olivia. Herve Leger and Valentino are also designers to check out if you're in the market to fem-up your wardrobe.

Ultra-fem dressing is a perfect trend to really take over the top. Pair a baby doll dress with strands of faux pearls and style your hair in soft curls. Pair a pink cardigan with a flowy white blouse and a pleated skirt and you'll be treated like a doll. Ultra-fem outfits look great with subtle, natural make-up. Wear a light pink blush on your cheeks (try Nars blush in Sex Appeal or Deep Throat) and neutral light-gold eye shadow (try Too Faced eye-shadow duo in Teddy Bear and Heaven). Add a hint of pearly pink gloss to your pout and you have mastered the ultra girly trend!
