The Topshop Panel Peplum Top

It dawned on me today that I have not dedicated a blogpost to this top. And this is a crime!

Without sounding too dramatic I would have to say that this is one of the best tops I have bought this year. I love the shape and quality of the fabric so much that I bought it in white. In fact I would consider buying it in the other colours they have as well.

Wear it with tight pencil skirts, high waisted trousers or just a pair of jeans, like I often do. It's a polyester and elastane mix so you get the best of both worlds - it feels light but holds it shape well, hugging where it needs to and flaring out in the way that a peplum can.

£24. From Topshop. You cannot go wrong.

I also like the way the arms are cut. That's an odd detail to focus on but it's cut deep and I think really flattering.

The only downer - and this is of course subjective - is that the zip is exposed at the back. I wish it had been concealed because then I think it would have really come off as a much more expensive piece. Exposed zips are sort of "overdone".

Anyway, there you go... :)

Have to say I love the fun silhouette this gives. When you pair it with smarter gear it almost feels like a Super Woman costume :) 

Hope you are all having an amazing Saturday!

PS. My smug face above - and no OOTD is complete without it! - may be partly down to my current phase of ruling out foundation and only using concealer.

My skin tone is in an in-between tone and nothing feels like it matches properly. Concealer is what I am left with and I have to say there is something so simple and fresh about just using concealer though...well there might be if you didn't use Make Up Forever Full Cover like I am but hey, got to start the move to a fresh face somewhere ;)

  2. Beautiful top and you're looking absolutely lovely, Laura!
    I say that if you are going to give up on foundation, you need reliable concealer and MUFE Full Cover certainly is one! Kudos to you for doing that!

  4. The top looks really and girly! I just wish I have slimmer and longer arms as you do. Oh, the top made you look flirty in a subtle gorgeous way. :D

  5. I haven't tried peplums yet, my style is ridiculously casual, and I feel they wouldn't go great with me - but this looks amazing on you! Your hair and tan look beautiful here, too x

  6. I love the look of this top but I've tried it on and it doesn't fit me. :( It gapes at the arm holes on me, as does the more "basic" one that Topshop sells in different colours.

  7. I've been looking for a peplum top for yonks, this looks great, thanks for posting Laura! Smug and rightly so.I'd be pretty smug too if one day I miraculously didn't need foundation. Lucky you :) I can but dream of the time x x

  8. I haven't tried any peplum tops yet, I think mostly because the stores in my area have sold out of then so fast! This gives you a great shape for a night out!

  9. You look fab! Very jealous about daring to go without foundation - although saying that I do often just go with a bit of MSF Natural for some minor coverage :) I know you're dedicated to Tory Burch flats but I ordered a pair of these from Shopbop and absolutely love them and thought they might appeal to you. I am literally obsessed and now need them in every colour! http://www.shopbop.com/yosi-samra-shoes-flats/br/v=1/2534374302183044.htm?all

  21. It said on the website that it's 94% Polyester,6% Elastane, so there's no cotton in that. I like the cut, but i hate wearing synthetic fabrics.

  31. I still think it looks really flattering and expensive but I know what you mean about exposed zips. Dare I say it - they're a bit tacky?! I'm yet to try on a peplum top... does it suit pear shapes?
