Peplum tops. So hot right now. But I know many-a-lady who cringe at the thought of trying to wear one. The trick is finding one that fits right to your proportions. It’s not so much of an issue if you’ve got a longer torso, but if you’re on the petite side, you’ve got to make sure that the waist (or the top of the peplum) hits you at your true waist (around your bellybutton line), and that the peplum itself, wings out over your hips.
This Ballerina Peplum top is such a fun way to test drive the trend. The sleeveless top features sheer, creamy-beige side panels, a cornflower blue diamond front, and a cream peplum. Not only is this color combo perfect for summer (what better way to lighten up your denim and dark pencil skirts), but it’s also a fresh color combo that’s rarely done. The back features a racerback, which gives the top a sporty feel, and top and bottom button closers.
Again, a peplum top is an easy way to instantly dress up and update your denim. Pair the top with skinny jeans, pumps or wedges, and a bright envelope clutch for a summer night out. At the office, wear the top over a sleek knee-length pencil skirt or a pair of high-waisted trousers. The peplum waist actually gives the illusion of longer legs (and an itty-bitty waist) when fit right.
The Ballerina Peplum top is $112 over at Pixie Market.
