Topshop Black Peplum Top
Advantages: Nice, thick material, smart, on trend
If you have read any of my previous reviews you will know that Topshop is my favourite high street store. I don't tend to buy basics like this from Topshop because their prices do tend to be higher than the likes of Primark. This review is of the plain black peplum top. Peplum, for those who don't tend to follow the trends is the name given to the shape and fit of the top. It is very fitted at the top and then from the waist it flares out and is loose fitting. I decided to buy this top as I do like this current trend and I decided that it would go well with jeans for a night at a bar with friends and I thought that I could wear it to restaurants etc in the future.
The straps on this top are slightly thicker than spaghetti straps and just like that of regular vest tops. The material is something that I really rate as it is thicker than some of the cheaper peplum tops that I have seen making it better value and durable. There is a line of material at the waist where the top changes shape and then the frilly peplum gives way from there. The changing shape of the top is very, very flattering. Even though the top is very basic I think it is formal and instantly looks like an effort has been made to dress up and look nice.
I bought this top in a size 8 and the fit is perfect, it has a zip on the back to allow extra room for getting into the top as it is designed to be fitted on the top half. The bottom half is very flattering for skimming over the hips. It is also possible to add a skinny belt onto the waist of this top which I did as it adds a bit of colour and extra shape to the otherwise plain top. Jewellery also helps to jazz up this plain top.
I have washed this top twice and the colour and shape has held up after the whole washing and drying process. The material if you are interested is 95% cotton and 5% elastane. The drying process takes quite a while I found due to the material being quite thick but this wasn't a problem for me.
This top is available in sizes 6-16 and costs just £18. I think I remember seeing this top in different colours but im not 100% sure. Overall, I rate this top 5 stars as I have no complaints so far.
