Peplum tops are a trend that’s gaining steam this spring. The perfectly prim blouses offer a classic silhouette made new again with bright hues, fun prints and lots of texture (we recently spotted Gwen Stefani, Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama in peplum looks to die for).
It’s also a versatile piece that you can wear in more casual settings with tailored shorts or boyfriend jeans. Or you can dress it up for a swanky affair by pairing it with a pencil skirt to give the illusion of a cocktail dress.
