Topshop Black Peplum Top
Advantages: Stretchy material, very flattering, good quality, available in several different colours
I first saw this peplum style top in my nearest Topshop available in black or cream. I thought it looked smart but feared the price would put me off as clothing is usually quite expensive in Topshop, but I was surprised to see this priced at only £16. Other peplum tops that I have seen almost identical to this by other retailers have been priced at over £20.
I decided to try it on as I usually am a size 8 but a lot of Topshop clothes I need to buy in a bigger size as they tend to be a smaller fit. However, the size 8 fit me perfectly as the material is very stretchy, but not so much that it ends up too tight on me and being uncomfortable. This is in fact very comfortable!
I bought this in black but it has since became available in many more colours including white, grey, blue, coral, cream and khaki. I have noticed that they now have a zip on the back which goes down about a third of the way of the top. Mine does not include a zip so I am not sure if they decided to discontinue them for some reason but I have had no problems with pulling mine on or off or it being too tight around the neck, so I don't see the need to have a zip there. The ones with the zips on are now priced at £18 instead of £16 which is how much I paid for mine. Both styles of the top are still available on the Topshop website.
I think this top looks very smart and can be dressed up or can be worn as a more casual look. I wear mine with skinny jeans and it looks very flattering. I also wore a blazer over mine so the flared bit of the top fell just below the jacket which made it stand out even more. I wore it to work and got lots of compliments, I want to go and buy it in more colours!
This is a lovely top and the quality is excellent. I also think it is a reasonable price considering it is from Topshop, where I think a lot of the clothing is overpriced. It is 95% cotton and 5% elastane and is machine washable. It is available in sizes 6 up to 16 and as I mentioned it is true to its size due to the stretchy material. A few of the colours are also available in Topshop's petite and tall sections.
Summary: This looks like a simple top, but it looks amazing on!
