Fashion | Peplum Top

Three days ago I decided to do a quick dash into Mr. Price to stock up on some winter cardigans for my London escapade coming up in about 50 days, 17 hours and 20 minutes, (but hey, whose counting!?).

I've seen peplum tops around other bloggers fashion posts but I haven't really been too crazy about them to be honest.
I thought I'd try one on while I was in the store, as I've recently discovered not to judge books by their covers. A wedding dress I thought to be hideous turned out to be 'not-so-bad' when I tried it on in the bridal boutique last week! 
 
This peplum top was plain white and had an almost 'country-girl' feel to it.
I also tried on a red, high-waisted skirt... (not eactly cardigan shopping now, is it?)
 
You can't really see the peplum shirt style in this photograph but I decided to add in what I wore here because it shows you a different way to wear it:


So that was my outfit! I've also really enjoyed just lounging around the house in this vest like piece. It's really comfortable and can be worn in so many different ways; they are cheap too! Unless you buy brands that is, which I don't... because a) I cannot afford them and b) even if I could, I would much rather save my bucks to do further travelling rather than buy something because it has the word 'Guess' on it. Everyone has different priorities I suppose!
 
Along one of my many hunts through the world of Pintrest I found some great Peplum tops and I also added my finds below for alternate designs and ways to wear them:
 





 
They are so versatile and fun to play around with! I must say that I really love the boob-tube fashion peplum top, that is probably my favorite from the lot.
 
Have you got any thoughts on peplum tops or found something in the fashion world that tickles your fancy lately? If so let me know!
 
I hope that everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

  1. I love seeing other people wear peplum tops and dresses, but I personally haven't tried or bought any yet. I think it's a very flattering cut though!

  3. I, too, think it is a flattering cut. But just because it was a trend I didn't buy one ;-) I'm kind of stubborn when it comes to trends...

  8. I love the peplum look on others but the few I've tried on just did not work on me. It's such a cute look, though! I love how you paired it with the red skirt. :)

  11. Sorry..clearly I'm a robot since I didn't even read that the comment had to be approved and that's why my previous comment isn't showing up. Lol. Well at least I'm making sure I'm showing you some love :-)

  12. I can't believe I don't have a peplum top in my wardrobe. I just don't think it would look right on me. I think your outfit is adorable, though.
