What happens when two of this season’s hottest trends come together in one place? A My Fashion Life Most Wanted list is born, and everything on it, we want!
Peplums and prints were two prominent trends to roll off the spring summer 2012 catwalks. Peplums: gothic at Alexander McQueen; ladylike at Cushnie et Ochs and pretty with an edge at Jason Wu – were championed by Victoria Beckham way before they hit the catwalks this season, and we blame her for the want-pangs we get every time we spot a peplum piece!
Prints, well what can we say? They’ve hypnotised us since the gloriously loud spring summer 2011 shows, and aren’t we deeply grateful for them! Paisley at Jil Sander; floral at Erdem; digital blooms at Mary Katrantzou and Afrocentric at Burberry Prorsum – spring summer 2012 demanded a riotous clash of all of these. Matchy-matchy has well and truly been bid farewell and it’s time to turn bolder and braver.
Take inspiration from our top peplum and print picks to ease your wardrobe into this possibly difficult-to-pull-off, but oh-so-desirable trend.
