Peplums are summer’s key silhouette and one of the best ways to bring them into your summer wardrobe is with peplum tops. Stylish and feminine, they can be dressed up or down for a versatile addition to your look.
The peplum trend has already been a hit with celebrities, who have worked the silhouette in the shape of peplum tops, dresses and even skirts. Take cues from the likes of Cat Deeley who wore a chic white peplum top with leather trousers for a look that is both edgy and girly. Meanwhile Catherine Duchess of Cambridge was recently seen with a sleek peplum jacket and pencil skirt combo, a look that would be perfect for the office. Recreate her look with one of the many peplum tops available at River Island. Cinch in your waist with a skinny belt and add a pencil skirt and heels for a fashion forward take on nine-to-five style.
The peplum trend has not escaped the red carpet, with Emma Stone being a particular champion of this look. In the last few months she has wowed the press with a colour block top and peplum skirt look and most recently a monochrome peplum dress.
If you’re looking to work this look on the high street then make River Island your go-to destination. With floral, striped and polka dot tops as well as versatile plain peplum tops from £18, you’re sure to find one to suit your style at a purse friendly price.
