We had a neon pink bathing suit with a peplum ruffle when we were little (shut up, it was the '80s), and thought it was the HEIGHT of fashion. Who'da thunk it kinda is now? Peplum dresses and tops are everywhere, and they're a fun way to add a new silhouette to your wardrobe for spring and summer. (Plus, when
we you wear one, we you can't resist twirling to watch the ruffle fly up.)
This Julie Haus Novak Peplum Top (#1) is stunning, but $270 is more than we're willing to spend. So, we did a little digging, and found Ganni's Peplum Ponte Tank (#2) for $78, and this ASOS Top with '40s Peplum (#3) for just $46.True, they're not exact matches, but for nearly two Benjamins less than the original, we'll take either one of them!
