The new silhouette for Spring/ Summer 2012 is, allegedly, the peplum.  Jason Wu was flying the flag for peplums at his S/S 12 show with the shape being featured on tops, skirts and dresses.  I’ve personally never been a fan of adding extra volume to my waist and hips but the theory is that peplums create or enhance an hourglass shape.

High street shops have already started stocking a range of separates and dresses featuring the peplum which means experimenting with this shape won’t break the bank.

    I love peplum too, I think it’s one of those few clever shapes that are flattering to pretty much almost every body shape and size. One of my latest designs is in peplum but I love that ruffle/frill at the hip whether in peplum style or not.

    I love the Pink skirt the most out of the pics.
