The peplum trend made its appearence again after years and years only to bring back a purely feminin, sexy, ladylike silhouette to the modern era. We saw it loom the catwalk during Spring/Summer 2012 and it definitely found its way into the Fall collections, and came to life through coats, skirts, dresses, tops, even pants.  It's nice to see a trend more woman-friendly, taking as back in a different time but in a still fashion-forward approach. And to those being afraid it might add more volume to the hips, I say that might not actually be a bad thing. It creates an hourglass-like  figure, complementing every female body and accentuating all the right areas.

Below I have created a little set for you fashionistas, to show you how I would incorporate the trend into an outfit for work, shopping, a night out etc. Take a look and hopefully you'll get a few ideas!
