You Said: Yes to Peasant Tops

July 13th, 2009


elenor-embroidered-top_071209We asked: Would you wear Peasant Tops?

You said:  Yes to Peasant Tops (barely), with a 53% to 47% vote.

Style tip? Ruffed Peasant Tops are very early 2000s, but you don’t have to get stuck in the past to wear them.  We’ve seen them paired with the infamous tiered prairie skirt in the past, but there’s no reason to confine your ruffly Peasant Top with such a skirt.  In order to keep the look sophisticated, pair your Peasant Top with a bottom with clean lines.  This can be anything from a pencil skirt to a pair of straight leg jeans.  Want to give your peasant top a modern twist?  Try embroidery on the top - and a slightly different (and more flattering) silhouette.

Next question: Orange is vibrant, fresh, and full of energy.  But is it too much to wear?  Tell us, would you wear a The Color Orange?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I ADORE orange – particularly flame orange, which shows up in many of my outfits.

    I’ve always been a fan of peasant tops (but without those skirts you mentioned!). I love the relaxed, laid-back feel they give an outfit.

    Ha! I have that shirt. It’s very cute if I do say so myself.

    It is a fabulous shirt. You have excellent taste, Jennifer :)

    Sal – flame orange is gorgeous…it’s one of those colors that just feels so alive. Plus, it’s flattering on almost all skin tones!

    Pam – yup, that’s the beauty of peasant tops. They give off an air of effortless style. You can look great without looking like you tried too hard.
