It can be really tedious for ladies coming up with that simple yet slaying outfit for events; the perfect fabric, design, styles, accessories and shoes.
An outfit less extravagant yet classy and chic, easy and quick to design, perfect for harmoniously combining other outfits, flatters your physique, suitable for ceremonial events, business meetings or appointments, an evening stroll in the city, exudes femininity, grandeur and style, what comes to mind is Peplum tops!
Now this begs the question, “why peplums?” Simple bit! It’s an ageless classic; it never goes out of trend. As far as designs go, Peplums accentuates the hip and makes the waist look smaller by comparison, by adding volume to the hips, peplums trick the eyes into seeing a more hourglass figure.
25 Ankara Peplum Tops for Ladies
Contrary to popular beliefs, Peplum dresses and tops do not only work for tall, busty ladies, the key is to know your form and leave the rest to us. However, certain limitations are therein and should be considered when it comes to Peplums.
- If you’re on the plus side, it is way better to chose styles with an overstated waistline and smooth peplums with less drama. The fabric patterns also matter, flora designs would enhance your plum look while geometric designs would conceal as much. Avoid getting the frill of your peplum at the widest point of your hips.
- In concealing your wide thighs and accentuating your waist and hips go for a thin strap.
- If you’ve got a slender figure or you’re petite, there really are no cons or prohibitions, wear peplums of any width and style as you please.

Talk about creativity and beauty, this makes the cut in all spheres.
Peplum tops like this are best with soft and cool fabrics. The trick is to get an Ankara material with cool colors and patters that match your form. The folds make it an amazing choice irrespective of your form, the most work was done on the strap above the folds that truly determines how your peplum looks on you.
This look can be achieved with soft waves and tight straps. It’s a multi-layered peplum top with really soft fabric. Other fabrics aside Ankara designs may flatter this style but this is a sure bet for it.

This is another simple and lovely design that has won the hearts of fashion lovers in recent times. This peplum design top with nice décolleté is suitable for both formal functions and dinner dates.
Broad frills like this wouldn’t go so well with long skirts or skirts with mermaid designs. Cool Pants, jeans or a mini like our model would do justice to that outfit with the right shoes of course.
You just have to love this style. Simple and beautiful.
Usually, this peplum dress not only gives the silhouette a curvy look, it gives the back the attention it requires with this drape at the behind. If you’re all about the “booty up” trend or a member of the “German Juice” community this simple design is just for you.

Not forgetting to mention, the design of the fabric made it very outstanding, geometric designs on the fabric would do well for this peplum top than flora designs.
