Peplum tops are our best friend when it comes to defining our waists and giving us that figure-flattering silhouette.
For something as simple as a layer of fabric thoughtfully placed, peplum tops are incredibly clever things. Nipping us in at our narrowest point and skirting out across the stomach creates a curve-enhancing effect that not only disguises tummies but oozes demure charm. From long sleeved peplum tops in stretchy jersey fabric to fitted styles perfect for wearing with smart pencil and bodycon skirts, the peplum top is a versatile piece that channels retro trends in a contemporary way.
Wear sleeveless peplum tops in casual prints like gingham and check with cropped jeans and wedges for an easy breezy daytime look. Structured peplum tops featuring sharp shoulders look great with tapered jeans and ankle boots or spike heeled stilettos. Work peplum tops into partywear by going for a strapless style with a sweetheart neckline for maximum bust and waist definition. Embellished peplum tops will take the glam factor even further, while designs with leather, mesh and sheer panels will give a sleek edge.
