If I had to choose a one piece that would instantly transform 2011 outfits to spring 2012-ready ones, I would say peplum. Why is it a crucial spring 2012 must-have piece? First of all, peplum skirt, dress and blouse have been on fire at the best 2012 fashion shows. Secondly, they’ve already had a couple of magazine covers and the last but not the least, peplum detailing creates a sleek womanly silhouette AKA perfect hourglass shape.
