Pop With Peplum Tops

What are peplum tops, you ask? The term refers to any top that has a flared or pleated portion of fabric that starts around the waistline. These flattering tops can emphasize your hourglass shape — or maybe even create the illusion that you have an hourglass shape. These shirts offer an appealing silhouette that looks great on women of all body types. You'll be turning heads as soon as you put one on!

Where to Wear Peplum Tops

Peplum tops are ideal office wear. Put your top together with a pair of plain dress pants for a polished and professional look that will make you the queen of the meeting room. Any type of dress pants will work well; trousers, slim-fit, or boot-cut pants will look lovely with your peplum top. You could also put your peplum top together with a skirt. To achieve a balanced look, go with a straight skirt or even a pencil skirt.

You could also wear a peplum top on date night. Dress it up with a long necklace and a pair of statement earrings to make yourself sparkle. The top itself might have alluring features such as off-the-shoulder sleeves, embroidery, or other cool touches that will make you feel even more gorgeous than you already are.

Some peplum tops have a more casual vibe that works well with jeans, regardless of the jeans' cut. A top that is looser around the waist will make it easy for you to move as you run errands or go about your other daily activities.

Your Imagination Is the Only Limit

There are so many peplum tops, ranging from funky to demure, that the possibilities for wearing them are endless.

Accessorize to put together the perfect outfit for whatever activities you're doing.
