Your hips are beautiful (Lanvin says so)…

Consider this a season of peplum and strategic pleats, both of which are intended to showcase a body part that most women aren’t wildly enthusiastic about displaying: our hips.

Ruffles and shapeless pleats are difficult to pull off, I admit, but peplum is not to be feared. While it obviously won’t conceal your hips, it will make your waist look ballerina-delicate.

Don’t take my word for it, take Lanvin’s:

Still not convinced that hips should be celebrated? Marc Jacobs doesn’t share your view:
