Peplum has quickly become one of my new favorite trends. I mean, why wouldn’t it? Super feminine in cut, peplum is basically just a top with a big ruffle on it. And I think y’all know how I feel about ruffles.
But I won’t sugarcoat it. My peplum love affair hasn’t exactly been easy. In fact, I’ve probably tried on dozens of tops and only have three in my closet. It seems that cuts of peplum vary greatly, and not all of them are very flattering.
Some of them stick straight out at the waist, making me feel like a walking side table, and others are so short I’d be constantly worried about showing skin; however, when they fit properly, they create such a lovely shape. (Plus, they’re great for hiding a food baby. I’d call that a win.)
Top: Mossimo, Jeans: Hudson (similar), Shoes: J.Crew Valentina Pumps, Bracelets: Stella & Dot Cristina Link, Eden Bangle, Clover Double Wrap, Necklace: Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant
Have you jumped on the peplum bandwagon?
I really like that top! The ruffle lays nicely. I agree with you- I have tried on a few peplum tops where it just feels awkward cause it sticks out too much!
Love, love peplum! It looks good on practically everyone, which is just magical for a piece of clothing! Cute nail color, too!
I have yet to find a peplum top that works on me, but this one is adorable on you! You look so pretty!
the top looks pretty on you. I love love your nail polish…the shoes just bring everything together nicely!
Have a nice weekend!
Loving those pants! xo, Julie
Hi! I haven’t ever seen cargo skinny’s but that is dang cute on you. Thanks for the nice nice words to me. (hug)
Love this! Simple and chic!
I agree – peplum is hard! But I have to say that you made it look easy. Great top!

cute look. Love the pants!
I don’t own one peplum top….every one I have tried on looks silly on me. Why do they look so great on everyone else? Humph….I am LOVING those J.Crew heels….oh-la-la! 😉
You look amazing (as always) and I am a fellow peplum addict! It’s just so flattering on everyone. While I agree that finding one with the perfect fit can be a little challenging, it is SO worth all the searching when you find one that fits great. I have gotten all 3 of mine from ModCloth and love em all.
I have a confession to make…I’ve never tried on a peplum top of dress for that matter. I love the look, like you said it’s so feminine and pretty but I just don’t know how it would look on me. I’ve been eyeing up a pretty peplum Alice & Olivia dress on Shopbop but I’m still not sure lol. You look so lovely in your top and I love your bracelets! Have a great weekend Lauren!
Girl. Those shoes. I die. The entire outfit is gorgeous, but I’m salivating over those shoes. Jeeze.
I agree about the cuts of peplum – I love the look when I find a flattering top, but some of them look awful on me! You look amazing (and I LOVE that top)!!! Love that necklace too, so much!
Beautiful outfit! LOVE the cargo and LOVE the peplum! <3

Love the peplum top,i just jumped on the bandwagon and bought a white sleeveless one from topshop!
I know this is about the top, but I love those pants! 😀 I’m not much of a peplum fan for me, but I love it on everyone else, ha ha
Lovely outfit! I love your shoes and jewelry!
Love the peplum and how you styled it here! x, Kat

Cute! I have a white one that I have been waiting to wear.
Great look, the peplum is really flattering on you! I’m right with you, I actually only have one peplum in my closet (a dress) – most peplum tops are surprisingly unflattering on me. When they work though, they’re great!

I love peplum too, but sadly I have not found a peplum piece that I think looks great on me. I agree with you that even if you love a style you have to search for the pieces in that style that look great on you.

I have to agree – not all peplum tops are so flattering. I tried one on at Target last week that was super short and flared out really far. I was like, “who wears this stuff?” hhaha. But I love the top you have on, it looks amazing on you. And I love your nail polish, too! 🙂
LOVE those pants!
Ok, I think I need to drive to target right now to find that top. It’s adorable, and the first time I’ve ever considered actually buying something peplum
I love this combo on you – it is chic but still cas, very nice! And those pumps are killer!
You look great. I agree about peplum. It is definitely something you need to try on to make sure the particular cut flatters your body.
