The Pretty Summer Trend I Always Wear When I Want to Show Off My Waist

Remember when peplum tops were all the rage circa 2006? Typically worn with a statement necklace, they were absolutely everywhere—including on Miss Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. Well, brace yourselves because they're officially back in style. Don't worry. The updated version of the peplum is cooler than ever and very much on-trend for 2022. The proof?  Designers and brands from Khaite and Ulla Johnson to H&M and Reformation have a design available right now, so that sounds like a worthy trend to me. 

Below, I've rounded up my favorite peplum tops that perfectly show off your waist. The selection includes a range of styles, including corsets, tank tops, long-sleeve blouses, backless tops, puff-sleeve numbers, cutout pieces, and more. Scroll down to shop my favorite peplum tops for 2022. 

I'm predicting it right now: This new arrival will sell out crazy-fast. 

Linen is perfect for spring and summer because it's so breathable.
