I’ve got my eye on…peplum tops!

I’ve been a little wary of this cut from the beginning, but I have a feeling peplum tops will look more flattering on tall women rather than shorter women because we are more statuesque and look leaner.  It’s true, that a bad-fitting peplum can accentuate your hips, but if you find the right fit, they can actually make hips look smaller!  The key is to find a peplum top in a tall size, and to avoid the hem hitting at the widest part of your hips.  You’ll also want to make sure that you’re wearing a slimming bottom, like a fitted pencil skirt or cigarette pants, and be sure the waist of the top is fitted!  This one below from Ann Taylor is very slimming!


And here are a few more options for your shopping pleasure:

So go ahead, be brave with me, and embrace the peplum!  It’s very feminine and a fun trend with staying power!
