Wednesday Wish List: Peplum trend

I have to admit, I wasn't a fan of peplums when I first saw them slinking down the catwalk. Sure, everything looks great on a minuscule sashaying model or in a beautifully styled editorial but in the real world where the majority of women are pear-shaped, do we really need the added volume that peplums bring?

I was hoping that peplums would be a non-starter trend which disappear as soon as they appear, it turns out that they were here to stay. And actually, I'm super glad! The retro 50s shape is actually really flattering and the dresses and tops I've tried on really pull in at the waist for a beautiful hourglass silhouette. Here are my favourite peplum looks on the high street:
