Styling a Peplum Top for Summer

With the warm weather finally approaching I have some fun tips for styling one of my personal favorite pieces this summer! It’s a gorgeous peplum top and you won’t regret having one of your own!

Summer time calls for easy, breezy materials, some fun patterns and definitely light shades to keep you cool. When you find a piece that checks all these boxes you know you have to have it! That’s how I feel about this gorgeous peplum top from Tobi. If you aren’t familiar with the store Tobi you can check out this post to get all the deets!

Getting back to this amazing top, lets walk through how you can style this beautiful piece!

Shorts and Lace Ups

This beautiful Tobi Acquainted Lace Peplum Top is simply gorgeous, I love the design on the lace, the color, the fit and best of all how lightweight it is! The bottom portion of the top isn’t lined and is very airy, perfect for summer. When you have a peplum top and you’re petite you need the bottom to be fitting. You can’t have it be flare as the look will drown out your petite frame. With this in mind I have used a pair of J.Crew distressed denim shorts. This combo is perfect for a nice hot summer day or perhaps a BBQ!

Wearing a pair of shorts means two things – you get to show off your legs and make yourself appear taller and two, you can wear a fabulous pair of shoes like I have! These Nine West lace up sandals will have everyone envious! They look fab and are very comfortable too! I absolutely love them. The color is such a gorgeous blue it really completes this look!

Skinny Jeans and Stilettos

The shorts serve as a great day time look but if you want to transition the Tobi top into a nighttime look then picking out a classic pair of skinny jeans is key! It has to be a pair of skinny jeans for the same reason I said above, the bottom has to be fitted! I am wearing a pair of J.Crew jeans.

Stepping up the style game a bit more, and making the look a tad bit more sexy, I am wearing a pair of black stiletto pumps from Alice + Olivia. The skinny jeans, along with the pumps make my tiny frame look taller and more slender!

Carry a Cardigan!

Yes I know it’s summer, so why on earth am I asking you to carry a cardigan?! Well if you’re like me and feel cold wherever you go because indoor places decide to crank up the temperature to freeze us all, then you’ll need the cardigan to keep your body from turning blue! This is especially true if your top is a spaghetti strap top. My one tip with the cardigan is to ensure that it’s fitted so that you can leave the front buttons undone and it won’t hang loosely off you!

Add a Pop of Color

Adding a pop of color in summer is a must! Well I almost always add in a pop of color, but in summer I just have to do it! I feel like it’s one thing I can’t live without. You can also take it a step further and add in two complementary pops of color to make the outfit more eye-catching! I have done just that for the daytime look by adding in the bright blue shoes and a hot pink bag! It’s all about how daring and confident you feel 🙂

Necklace For The Night

For the day look I have opted to go sans necklace. The main reason for this is that it would be hot and I know I would get sweaty and wanted to avoid the added sweat magnet around my neck. However for the night look I definitely went in for the necklace. I would suggest you do the same, it’s cooler and jewelry always makes an outfit look more dressy! With a peplum top you want to try and wear a chunky necklace that sits around your neck instead of a long necklace!

So with all these tips for a single peplum top, the ability to wear it at night and during the day, take it from casual to sexy, I am sure you can’t help but love it! Am I right or am I right? 🙂
