There is something about peasant tops that exudes sexiness. I think the roomy silhouette of peasant tops helps create a breezy comfort zone for women, while looking mysteriously flirty. Peasant tops draw a lot of attention with their soft necklines, showing off the sexy collarbone. Peasant tops are bohemian like tops that define comfort while being adorable. Pair up a peasant top with some fitted jeans, a long flowing skirt, or some cute shorts and wedge shoes. Keeping it simple will give off the fun and flirty look.

The first peasant top I found is a racy one from Rampage. This Rampage Drop-Waist Peasant Top would look stunning with leggings because it’s a loose, long fitting peasant top. Leggings with some chunky heels and it will knock them dead. The lace definitely contributes to the edgy look, along with the scooped neckline. The little details and the slightly cinched waistline give the top two thumbs up from me!

This next peasant top is a bit more detailed than the previous. This Arden B. Embroidered Chiffon Peasant Top has white floral embroidery on black, which really makes it pop. The top part of the shirt it has a mysterious keyhole tie on the front. The fit is more fun, and less shapely. It would look great with some cute shorts and thick belt. It’s comfortable and airy-- great for sticky summer days. Both the color and style are easy to work with to diversify your look every time. It would look great with some white denim and a thick bright belt, or it can be worn simple without any accessory add-ons. But, the color combination does give a lot of room for creativity.

Lastly, my favorite is a light, soft yellow peasant top that’s beautiful! I love everything about this feminine RXB Embroidered Scoop-Neck Peasant Top! The color is easy on the eyes, but adds that girly playful look. With a slight summer glow, it will look even better. This particular top is also capable of being transformed by adding a belt or bright bold spring accessories. The short lantern sleeves and the elastic cuffs are defined with cute trim. The shirt is cotton, so it’s very easy to wash-- just be careful when drying. Cotton is always a great durable comfortable material during the warmer months.

What is so great about peasant tops is that it’s a fashion trend that is 100% comfortable, which isn’t always the case. But, when it comes to these tops, you will be looking fashionable while doing everyday activities in charm and style.
