How To Wear Peplum Tops This Spring

Has any one else been personally victimized by daylights savings?

I have never been a morning person but more so than ever when its dark outside when I wake up. It feels like this week has been a thousand years long and its not over yet. On the bright side we have been able to go sit outside and enjoy the gorgeous sunshine we have finally been getting, but if the sun could start showing its face earlier that would be awesome cause there isn’t enough coffee in the world to help me get through these long dark morning.

I know I am being a bit dramatic but I am really not a morning person and I really hate feeling like I am not getting enough sleep. However, I am very excited because daylight savings means that spring is here and I am craving sunny spring days with all the shitty weather we have been having here in San Diego this winter.

Casual Outfit For Spring Featuring Peplum Tops

There are so many reasons to love it. First and foremost, the color! I am a sucker for a good deep jewel tone but I love it even more in a top that is spring friendly. Then lets talk about the material! Its so lightweight, so this top feels just like a t-shirt so its good for everything from a nice dinner to casual weekends. Last, its a different twist on a classic. Its not a t-shirt, its not a blouse, no this peplum top is somewhere in between and I love it so much more because of that.

What Is A Peplum Top?

Peplum is a term used when a strip of fabric is gathered and sown at the waistline of a top to create a slight flair and flattering hourglass shape. They are great for emphasizing curves, and adding a feminine touch to any outfit. They are versatile, flattering, fun and are a great addition to dress up or dress down depending on your needs.

Here are some great ones to rock this spring:

How To Wear Peplum Tops

Don’t over think it. I keep my looks simple and classic while easy to wear as I think the peplum top is enough of a statement that the rest of the outfit needed be extravagant. Pairing it with some classic boyfriend jeans like these ones from gap that have stood the test of time. Like seriously I have had them for years and they aren’t wearing out or fading, what more could you ask for?

Throw in some cute booties, cause I am a big bootie bitch. Lol, but any way back to the point. Want to talk about something that has stood the test of time? These Steve Madden booties are a testament to the money well spent. They are comfortable, long lasting and in any closet, irreplaceable.
