These Embroidered Tops Are Perfect for Summer!
CELEBS LOVE PEASANT TOPS
Even celebrities need to dress casual every now and again, and for us mere mortals, casual dress is but a way of life. When a trend comes along that is not only fashionable, but also casual and comfortable, we like to give it extra praise. Peasant tops have us jumping for joy – with their beautiful bits of embroidery, colorful patterns, and roomy silhouettes, these tops are a fashionable addition to any casual summer wardrobe. Our fashion radar has picked up the peasant top trend on celebs like Cindy Crawford, Jessica Simpson, Reese Whitherspoon, and Marcia Cross. Each peasant top outfit we’ve seen has been casually and fashionably put together, proving that comfortable can also be stylish!
HOW TO WEAR PEASANT TOPS
While the peasant top is an easy trend to wear, it’s still possible to turn your peasant top into a “flower child” fiasco, so there are a few rules to follow. Pair a Forever 21 floral embroidered top or this ombre peasant top from Charlotte Russe with your favorite pair of straight leg or bootcut jeans. Avoid flared denim and trouser cuts, which can give your look too much of a ’70s flashback. For short peasant blouses like Bebe’s geometric peasant top, add a rustic belt to your look à la Cindy Crawford, and keep your jewelry simple (remember, this is a casual look). Sandals like flats, wedges, or chunky heels are the perfect pairing for your peasant top-and-jeans combo. Avoid sandals with embellishments; keep it simple, and never (we mean NEVER) pair your look with cowboy boots if you want to remain in the style club.
HOW TO ACCESSORIZE PEASANT TOPS
The peasant top trend is meant for casual days and running errands in style, which is why it can be paired with whichever size handbag is necessary for your daily routine. Mix and match your favorite purses to find your perfect match. Keeping in the same casual theme, wear your hair loose, wavy, or pulled back in an easy updo or ponytail. A side braid can also be appropriate, but avoid pigtails and hats, which can turn the look kitschy. Finally, just throw on a pair of dark sunglasses and you’re ready to go!
Although there are a simple style few rules to follow when wearing this trend, peasant tops are an incredibly comfortable addition to your wardrobe. Find your favorite peasant top to throw on during your casual days and you can look fashionable and feel fabulous at the same time!
