The peplum silhouette always seemed appealing, but I wasn’t sure if on my frame, it’d be too loose at my waistline. Which, as my smallest point, isn’t exactly something I like to hide, especially not with billowing fabric (legit concern though, peplum tops can flip up in windy conditions). I had a feeling it all just *might* work after all though and grabbed a few really inexpensive peplum tanks at Old Navy a few months ago. The looser fit is everything in the heat, and I have been wearing both of the tops non stop all summer! Don’t you just love when that happens?!
It took a moment to figure it all out, but my trick with a peplum tank is to always pair it with skinny or slim denim. I try to elongate with a long trench coat or duster jacket, but in these warmer days, a casual scarf like this tie dye one does the same trick. Sometimes a longer necklace can have this same effect. I just like to keep the illusion of being taller, especially when I pair peplum and skinnies with flats! How do you feel about peplum? Does it work for you? Would you try it?!
