Feminine and flirty all at once; peplum tops came, conquered and, well, stayed. The best instantly-glamourying (if that is a word) wardrobe addition since a slick of red on the lips, we love the thrill of the frill!
It’s the sheer versatility of this perma-trend that’s got us hooked: hanging stylishly from the bottom of a collared shirt, or dressing up a casual tee, a peplum works to flatter most body shapes, depending on where it sits, and it’s an easy trend to buy into.
Such is our appreciation of the peplum that we’ve rounded up 10 of the best peplum tops to suit every budget, from high end to pocket-cheering high street. Thank us later.
