Spring! Spring! Oh Spring has Sprung!

It's the first day of Spring, and that means many things... namely, the onset of long summer days, flowers blooming, and of course... spring fashion! Many will note that the dominant palette of spring seems to be pastel, with a fifties touch with the peplum skirt, which seems to have divided the fashion world. However, those against the structured flare of the peplum may fall for the  complete opposite in the form of the 1920s drop waist. But just like what is typical of the fashion world, there are many polar opposites to each trend, while the drop waist is the alternative to the peplum, so too do other trends contrast each other such as animal prints of birds versus abstract and digital prints. Baroque made a big comeback, possibly with the popularity of Versace for H&M, it seems to be one of the big trends of the season. So what trend will you be sporting? Here's a few peplum skirts for you to start planning your spring wardrobe!

This Denisha mesh
pencil skirt by Hakaan is
perfect to rock the peplum trend
this spring, well, as long as you
have £1,750 spare.

If you don't have the bank
balance for Hakaan, then how
about this red number
from ASOS?
One thing to remember about the peplum
skirt is that it may hug your curves, but it may be unflattering for those with wider hips, by making them look even wider. However, they can help in balancing out figures when you find one that fits well.

Black is a classic colour
and I love the layering of
this Lipsy skirt. Perfect for during
the day with black tights, as well as
with a smart blouse for the office.
