Plus Size on a Budget – Peplum Top Outfit

A plus size peplum top outfit idea for summer.  And the next in my “plus size on a budget series!”  Plus, a second look with a different color of a statement necklace.

My “Disclaimer”

I want to prevent some anticipated feedback.  So please keep these things in mind:

  • “Budget” is relative.  Some people easily spend $300 on sunglasses, while other people allocate $300 for their annual clothing budget.
  • You may be able to find these items elsewhere for less.  These are just some “budget-friendly” finds I have come across.  And I typically don’t link to clearance items because they sell out and then people are disappointed.  Also, I have no way of linking to thrift stores, but obviously, if you want to check out your local thrift stores, I think that is a great idea!
  • Recycle & reuse.  As with all of my posts, I hope that you can use the pieces you already have in your wardrobe.  Additionally, I assume that you can reuse all of the pieces below in other combinations with things in your closet to create a variety of looks.  Meaning, I think it is unfair to judge the expense of one outfit as though that is the only way to wear the pieces.

Outfit Details

This adorable mint green peplum top makes a statement with a bold necklace in a complementary color.  Remember when I talked about this color relationship in my Color Theory for Fashionistas post?

Wear this combination with jean shorts or jeans.   Add a white denim jacket as needed.

Throw on some white slide sandals and a straw tote bag.

Stack on some delicate bracelets and a pair of trendy thick hoop earrings.

Plus, I wanted to mention that I recently purchased a lot of jewelry from this brand, PAVOIfrom Amazon, and must say the quality is really great for the prices!

You can check out some more of my picks in my Amazon store.

In this second look, I swapped the complementary color statement necklace for one in analogous colors.  Again, this is another color relationship I have talked about in this post and this IGTV video.

  1. Love the chunky necklace set! It comes with pretty drop crystal earrings too, for another look. The accessories change the whole personality of the outfit.
    I also really love the flattering and easy peplum top, this is my favorite cut to skim over everything and I love the color! TY Alexa. 😊
