peplum top

It can be quite difficult to find clothes that would accentuate and highlight your curves. But a few years ago, a top was designed exactly for this purpose. And it made the lives of many women a whole lot easier. What top is this? That’s no other than the peplum top.

This top is fitted at the top then it goes a bit wider at the bottom, allowing any woman to showcase all the curves that she has in the most elegant and classy way possible. But because of the design of this top, many women find it difficult to style this top properly. They have many questions like: What should they pair with it? How do they wear it?

Well, we have the answers to those questions below:

Pair it with slim fit trousers or skirts.

Since the bottom part of the top is already a bit flared, the best thing that you can do is to balance off the look by putting on something fitted like a pencil skirt or a pair of leggings. However, you should be careful in choosing your trousers, avoid anything that is too tight or fitted as it can make your top look oversized and will not create that balance that you want in your body. A pair of too fitted pants can make your upper body wider than it really is.

Mix and match it with an equally flaring mini skirt.

If you are on the petite side, you can still take advantage of the beauty of this top. You can pair it with a flared mini skirt to balance off the wide bottom of the top. If you are a bit on the tall side, we recommend going for a skirt that falls just above the knee so it won’t look too short on you.

Never wear it with wide legged pants.

We all know that the wide legged pants are all the rage these days but pairing it with peplum top is a big no-no! Pairing a wide top and wide bottom will make you look fatter than you are. You can reserve this pairing to people who look too thin and are too tall.

Stick with ladylike accessories.

The beauty of the peplum top lies in how feminine it looks. So instead of fighting it, just simply embrace it by pairing this top with feminine accessories like pumps, clutches, hoop earrings and many more.  

Keep these tips in mind and you can surely find the perfect match for your peplum top. This top is so versatile that you can wear it to a party, work and formal occasions. So put these tips into action and enjoy the benefits peplum top has in store for you!
