Plus Size Peplum Top Summer Outfit

A plus size peplum top summer outfit for a polished yet casual look.  

An adorable black eyelet ruffled top with peplum is paired with a white denim skirt.  

But this black and white ensemble is anything but boring!

The Ultimate Summer Tote

I added a Saint Laurent caned tote bag.  It is absolutely stunning! 

But it is also quite pricey.  Ok, so it’s bonkers expensive.

So, I found some more affordable alternatives.

The Espadrilles

The black espadrille wedges add some casual sophistication to the look. 

I like that they’re close-toed in case you want to wear them to work.

But, obviously, open-toes work as well.

The Jewelry

For jewelry, I stuck to some classic gold pieces.  

Personally, I think gold coin jewelry never goes out of style.  But, these pieces are currently trending.

A coin medallion necklace and a coin charm bracelet are perfect for this look.

And a simple pair of flat wide hoops can be worn for work or play!


Finish off your look with a hot pink lip, like “Rose Saint Germain” from YSL. 

As I’ve said, the Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipsticks (or here) are my favorite lipsticks. 

I readily admit they are bougie AF and totally break the budget.  But they are amazing!

They’re 65% oil and feel amazing on the lips!  Not to mention they smell fantastic. 

Plus, the packaging is so gorgeous that I actually bought a lipstick holder like this one to display them.

And I just can’t say enough great things about them!

The closest lippies I have found at more reasonable prices are L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Shine Lipstick and Sephora’s Rouge Lacquer Lipsticks

While both are similar, they aren’t even close to the decadence of the YSL ones.

  1. I already have most of this outfit! But I have the shoes in navy blue. Any ideas on where to find a cute navy top like that black one?

  2. I just bought the JCrew top! I love this outfit!!!Thank you for this!! Any capsules coming??

    Thank You!!!

  3. You’re the best. I’ve Seen the St. Laurent bag and can’t unseen it now.. I love the way it looks and doesn’t compare to the rest but 2 other bags looks nice as well..

  4. I just subscribed to your blog – I only wish I knew about it sooner! You offer knowledgeable (i.e., the ⅓ to ⅔ style commentary), chic, affordable alternatives to your presented looks. This look is exactly what I was looking for for a 2 day trip to downtown Boston. One suggestion – I suffer from bunions- and when I plan to do prolonged walking, sightseeing, etc. I wear pumps or ankle boots from Orthofeet. While not as stylish as shoes you recommend, they make a world of difference to anyone with painful knee, back, feel problems. (not an endorsement just a lifesaver for me.
