What goes around comes around

So unless you have been hiding under a fashion rock you will be aware that peplums have been everywhere lately, but did you know that this is not the first time?
Modern peplum's started popping up on our radar around the 1940's....
 the perfect shape for adding or defining curves!  However, peplum's go even further back than that, to ancient Greek times!


...yes, they are (male?) statues wearing the oh so-popular-in-the-2000's, peplum. So really you can embrace new trends by simply rummaging around in your mums/nans wardbrobe, brilliant, right?! and the next blast from the past that is set to be big? 60's retro, geometric prints and longer cuts are going to be all the rage. It's been cropping up on celebs and fahionista's alike, head down to next and check out some of their printed wares.

  1. Oh that first dress is divine. I love peplum because it flatters all body shapes. I am pear shaped and it helps to even out my waist and hips.
