I hope my American readers had a good holiday with their families inshallah! I know I had loads of fun with my Hubster and chubster.

Since Thanksgiving is over now, I am sure a lot of American hijabis are trying to find ways to hide the post turkey bellies. I know I am!

Luckily, one of the biggest carry over trends from past seasons is the peplum trend. At first, it looks a bit scary. Who really wants EXTRA fabric around the mid section?

But, if you really think about it, wearing a peplum top is a nice way to hide a belly but still look trim since it highlights the waist. It helps elongate the silhouette as well. If you want a polished, elegant, ladylike look, this is the trend for you.

As you can tell from the outfit I styled above, you can actually mix a few trends at once. I mixed the black and white trend with stripes and the peplum trend. Try some of them out next time you want to dress up. Wear the top with a long skirt. With the skirt above, you will need to wear black leggings. I would pair this with black wedge shoes to funk it up but you can use any pair of your favorite black shoes. Finish with a bright hijab if you are bold, or go safe with a black or white hijab.
