The holiday peplum top trend is still going strong. So, now’s the time to start preparing all of your holiday party looks. There are many ways to style a peplum top, from the office party to New Year’s eve.

“In general, wearing something form-fitting with a peplum top is best to show off the volume peplum creates,” fashion editor Belle Bakst, told 21Ninety. The fashion editor explained that a form-fitting bottom will make the peplum top the star of your look. “Keep in mind, you’ll want to wear something high rise. You don’t want gaps between your peplum top and bottoms!” 

Peplum With Silver Sequin Skirt

Try pairing your peplum top with a sequin mini skirt, for your upcoming New Year’s eve festivities. “A peplum top and silver sequin bottoms is always the way to go,” celebrity stylist, Branden Ruiz, told 21Ninety. “I recommend styling a peplum top with an above the knee pencil skirt,” the stylist stated.

Ted Baker London Lillyyy Long Sleeve Peplum Top

Ted Baker’s London Lillyyy Long Sleeve Peplum Top is a chic take on the trending top. The peplum at the bottom hem, and on the sleeves, do resemble a lily flower. It flares with a petal-inspired design that offers more interest than the average peplum top. The rest of this crew neck long sleeve top is fitted to the body. Shop three colors in sizes 00 to 18. 

Wild Fable Womens Paillette Mini Skirt

Wild Fable’s Womens Paillette Mini Skirt has large sequins that instantly catch the light. Also, it’s a fitted pull-on pencil skirt that is above the knee. So it combines both of Ruiz’s recommendations. Shop this silver (or a black version) in sizes XXS to 4X. 

Peplum and Subtle Flare Leg Pant

A look that’ll work for nearly every holiday party is a peplum top paired with a slightly flared pant. “The slight flare creates enough drama to balance out the peplum,” Bakst exclaimed. 

On 34th Womens Metallic Plissé Surplice-Neck Peplum Top

On 34th’s Womens Metallic Plissé Surplice-Neck Peplum Top is a glistening piece. This V-neck peplum top is made of a pleated metallic fabric that reflects light all over the party. Along with its peplum hem, there are other features to appreciate too. The balloon sleeves have elastic cuffs so you can push your sleeves up when it’s time to hit the dance floor. Plus, the faux-wrap detail on the front flatters your curves. Shop two colors in sizes XXS to XXL. 

7 For All Mankind Faux Leather Ultra High Rise Skinny Boot In Black

These 7 For All Mankind Faux Leather Ultra High Rise Skinny Boot In Black are a Bakst recommendation. The flare on these ultra-high rise pants are slightly bigger than a bootcut pant. That gives you enough width to balance your peplum top. Shop this black bottom in sizes 23 to 34.

Peplum and a Body-Hugging Pencil Skirt

Another classic style is a peplum top paired with a curve-accentuating pencil skirt. Bakst noted that you’ll want to go for a pencil skirt with ample stretch. “A fitted skirt accentuates the body, while a stretch jersey keeps you comfy,” the fashion editor explained.

This top boasts a sweetheart neckline, three-quarter length sleeves, and the peplum on the bottom hem. Shop three colors in sizes 12W to 22W.

Universal Standard’s Danube Jersey Skirt is a piece you’ll be able to rock far beyond the holiday season. This Bakst-recommended bottom is a body-hugging pull-on tube-style pencil skirt  With its elastic waistband, you can adjust the rise higher or lower depending on your personal preference. Shop the black in petite, or five colors in the regular cut, in sizes 00 to 40. 

Peplum With Denim Bottoms

Both fashion experts recommended pairing your peplum top with a pair of denim. If your upcoming holiday party is more on the casual side, Bakst said denim is the way to go. “A V-neck peplum top with some denim pants always makes your body look longer,” Ruiz explained. 

Hyacinth House Red Puff Sleeve Elaina Blouse

Hyacinth House’s Red Puff Sleeve Elaina Blouse is the peplum top that won’t fall flat by the end of the night. Plus, it’s a V-neck top like Ruiz suggested. The entire outer is made of 100 percent cotton. That’s what gives this peplum top its sturdy structure. That said, this top has a number of body-contouring features. 

There’s the slightly puffed shoulder on the balloon sleeves, zip-up back, underbust seams, and ruched panels on either side of the torso for extra stretch. Shop this structured top in three colors. Sizes XXS to XXL are available. 

Everlane The Way-High Jean

Everlane’s The Way-High Jean is another Bakst recommended bottom. These jeans come up to your actual waist. A 98 percent cotton-rich fabric hold everything below the waist. Shop seven washes, and three inseams, in sizes 23 to 35.
