Get The Look... Peplums

The peplum waist was popular on the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalk with numerous designers including Marchesa and Vera Wang showcasing peplums in their collections. 
It's a key trend for this season and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe with peplum ruffles appearing on dresses, jackets and tops. The flare of fabric helps define your figure, can cinch in your waist and creates a flattering silhouette. What's not to love?!

The Peplum is a celebrity style favourite with Chalize Theron attending the recent Bafta Tea Party in LA in a pretty yellow Stella McCartney creation with a peplum waist. Michelle Williams appeared on Jay Leno earlier this month in a cute peplum dress by Jason Wu from his Spring 2012 collection.

  8. I'm really not a huge fan of peplums; I love the way they look, but don't think they work for my body shape at ALL; however, I think I'll be making an effort to find one that does this season, for sure xx

  9. Thanks for the run down! I think they are little bit too feminine for me but I'm sure if the right top with a print came along, I would buy it. There's a really nice style in H&M that I've seen, maybe I might brave it and try it on!

    1. I keep seeing lots in the shops so I'm sure you'll find one that you like soon! :) x

  10. Love this look, I think it is very feminine and classic. Love the Miss Selfridge dress, going to have a look for that xx

    1. I love the classic shape of the dresses, they're simple yet stylish! x

  13. Michelle Williams looks amaaazing! I'm not majorly into this trend but some pieces are just so pretty! I think they're very flattering to curvy/hourglass girls which is always great.


  14. I've been going crazy over the gorgeous peplum clothes I find online, especially at Asos. My wishlist is filled with them! That polka dot peplum dress is absolutely precious! And the red dress is seriously stunning.
