Must Have: Summer Peplum Tops


Last year’s hottest trend followed us all the way into summer 2013, so don’t disregard peplum just yet. A multitude of designers, including Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg, and Balenciaga, showcased the style on the S/S 2013 runway in the fall, but because the look was too cute to hold off on until the following season, glam ladies everywhere immediately jumped on the trend. According to the Fashion Week agenda, though, it’s now officially the season of peplum. Skip thick materials and somber colors and go for flirtier styled tops this time around. Summer peplum blouses are less structured and harsh than the ones worn in fall and winter. Featuring bright colors, seasonal patterns, flowing lace, soft silk, and even a couple bustier styled tops, our roundup has the best of potential options.
