Cut a bold shape with a peplum

This season there are plenty of styles you need to be on the lookout for, and arguably one of the biggest is the peplum. This shape has been around for a while but only now is it really making an impact, with catwalks and high streets alike being full of this surprisingly wearable shape. So why not get on board?

The peplum style really accentuates the hips, cinching in the waist with a bit of added flounce to perfectly highlight your curves. It can create the ultimate hourglass silhouette, whether you want to have something a bit more fitted or really attention-grabbing, and perhaps the best thing about the peplum this year is that there are so many ways to wear it. Your first thought could well be a peplum skirt, and this can be ideally teamed with a pair of heels and a fitted top for work-wear chic or night-time impact—whichever you prefer. A simple peplum dress is another great option (and again you’ll find styles for both office and evening use), or what about a peplum jacket?

The peplum jacket is sophisticated, stylish and ideal for a whole range of occasions, with plenty of materials and designs being on offer to ensure it can go with anything. It can be the ultimate transition coat before it’s time to dig out your trusty duffle, being perfect for when the evenings (and even the days) start to get a bit on the chilly side. So what are you waiting for? This high-drama look can be just as good for the working week as it can for the weekend and with so many different options available you’ll soon find something that can work for you, so go for the peplum and you’ll be cutting a bold shape everywhere you go.
