Have you noticed what’s happening with hips?

One of the things that really stood out for me in the Fall 2012 collections, aside from the fact that Spring’s pastels are going to get a smack down from Fall’s very bold palette, is the action going on in the hip area.

With peplums on everything from tops to pants and some just flat out distorted silhouettes the hips were a huge focus for fall. ┬áStyle.com described Stella McCartney’s collection as being “…how women want to dress now.” I for one don’t mind having a little extra wiggle room in my shirt dress but I have to wonder where is this coming from and, more interestingly, where is it going?
