I remember when I was a little girl, peplum was huge. All my older aunts and cousins were into the look; peplum tops, dresses, skirts, pants, you name it, they had it! I thought it looked hideous, but I was also a tomboy and despised the colour pink. Here I am about 11 years later, wearing a bright pink and black peplum dress and I just love it!

Peplum is definitely here to stay for a while. If you invested in this trend earlier this year, try to pair it with darker, more subtle colours and you're ready for fall/winter 2012. I've also been eyeing peplum jackets and can't wait to find the perfect one to add to my wardrobe!

Now I'm off to a social media set-up meeting... wish me luck!

    1. You just have to try on a bunch of different styles and find one that suits you/your body. Trust me, a lot of peplum tops and skirts look TERRIBLE on me. I finally have a few pieces that I really like though.
