Since the peplum first made a return to the catwalks a few seasons ago, it has become a firm favourite in womenswear, helping to create an effortlessly feminine appeal to any item it is teamed with thanks to the hourglass silhouette it can help to create. For an instant infusion of vintage inspired glamour, invest in one of these peplum dresses today. Lanvin’s decadent creations exude Parisian chic. Alternatively, play down the peplum with a shift style or bodycon dress that uses the peplum as a flared skirt at its hem. See Viktor and Rolf and Alexander McQueen’s creations.
