TIBS: Peplum Tops

http://cdn-ugc.cafemom.com/gen/resize/264/387/80/2012/03/22/09/b4/oo/po2kfavgo41couh.jpg Many celebrities have been seen wearing peplum dresses in the past few weeks and months. This is a picture of Charlize Theron sporting a yellow and cream peplum dress at an event a few months back.

  Other celebs such as Blake Lively, Emma Stone, and  Jennifer Aniston have all been seen wearing gorgeous peplum dresses. Some of you might not have heard of peplum before so I’ll briefly explain it: peplum is an extra layer of material that is added at the waistline. If you missed my previous post on peplum dresses, click here. So in this post I am going to show you guys a couple options if you want to look pretty in peplum without looking too formal. A peplum top is the perfect alternative to still get the cute style without looking too dresses up.

This turquoise lace top is perfect for summer! This shirt combines so many trends from summer 2012, but still looks adorable! It is from Forever 21, and you can get it now for only $19.80. Be sure to wear a cami or a bandeau under this shirt, since it is obviously see though and you don’t need to be giving any free shows this summer 😉

Feathers are also popular, and this bright shirt is no exception! It is from Forever 21 and is only $15.80.I love how the model is wearing just simple shorts and a simple statement necklace with it! If I owned this shirt, I might also pair it with solid color shorts too, as long as they matched the colors in this rainbow top! I’m not so sure about her shades though…

About a Twirl Purple TopThis purple peplum top is a little dressier than the last two options. But I love the look of it paired with a body con skirt for a more formal feel! But you could also air it with skinny jeans to dress it down a bit! It is $30 at Lulu’s. 
 Lastly, you could wear a peplum top with stripes to add a nautical theme to your outfit! This one is from Charlotte Russe and is $29.99. I would pair this with dark wash skinny jeans and an anchor necklace. Possibly Sperrys if I was really feeling nautical, but otherwise just some strappy sandals!

Tell me what you think. Will you be wearing anything peplum this season?
