Plus Size Peplum Tops? Yes Please! #PSPstyle

March 12 2013 | CeCe Olisa

I carry most of my weight in my tummy, so it took me a verrrrry long time to test out the peplum trend. I didn’t think the flare of the peplum would sit right awkwardly on my rolls, but that is not the case at all. This is a plus size peplum from SimplyBe, I’ve paired it with three different bottoms and while leggings were my most daring choice, I loved the vintage feel. I wanted to sing songs from Grease all day!

As I mentioned on twitter the other day, a good pair of leggings should be able to double as shapewear. I like my leggings to sit high on my waist so that they help keep me cinched in and smooth. Also, be sure your leggings arent worn because when the sunlight hits a pair of worn leggings, all bets are off and no one on the street should know if your underwear has polka-dots, or not 😉

    CeCe, the peplum looks so cute on you that I’m sort of envious! The first (and last) time I tried a peplum top, I looked like one of those skirted cartoon characters from Fantasia, LOL!

    Cute outfit! So peplum really does cover a multitude of sins, huh? I’m about to take the peplum plunge myself, finally, and I hope it works well with my rolls, too! 🙂

    I took the plunge and tried the peplum’s too and they look awesome! Sort of obsessed with it now; I just ordered a peplum cardigan.

    I did end up trying the Gold Peplum top from Asos you have in the suggestions slideshow and it looks great in pictures but when I got it – it was the most uncomfortable top I’ve ever had on. It’s heavy, itchy and reminded me of the top part of a suit of armor – except that its a beautiful gold color.
