Prim peplums

Spring 12

Trend summary

Peplums were all over the spring 12 catwalks, on tops, jackets and skirts, as well as the less conventional peplum-waist trousers at Dries Van Noten. Nodding heavily to the 1950s, the trend can be worked in a classic or modern way.

How to buy it

Skirts with peplum waists or trims offer an alternative to the simple pencil shape. A fitted jacket with peplum offers a sophisticated take, while peplum tops are best left to younger women, as they can look wide on the hips.
