The Peplum

The peplum has been popping up all over the runway, the red carpet and various retailers recently. This silhouette gives the illusion of a smaller waist and curves so what's not to love.

Here are some designers who included peplums as a feature in their looks for the upcoming season.

look 7                                        look 23




Elie Saab resort 2012 collection







I love the colours Elie Saab used for the dresses in the resort collection. Being a single block colour makes it more about the silhouette.

  4. These are awesome dresses the shape can be difficult to pull off though, but they're still very sophisticated looking!

  8. Love a good peplum. It's really flattering on ladies with a tiny waist but bigger hips... like me. The stella looks in black are my favorites here.
