The Return of the Peasant Top, See How Kourtney Kardashian Wears Hers

The peasant top is back! Fashion trends really go through a cycle. What’s big today will fall out of favor with fashionistas soon enough, but can be expected to make a comeback within the decade.

A few days ago, Taylor Swift wore her modern peasant top to the Capital FM Summertime Ball. The singer paired her peasant blouse with lace trimmings with tailored shorts.

A few days ago, Kourtney Kardashian decided that her peasant top needed the luxe treatment. The reality TV star steered away from the boho look that peasant tops have become associated with. Instead, she decided to pair her top with a pencil skirt with oriental embroidery.

Do you want to ride the peasant top trend? It should be easy. Stores always seem to stock up on peasant blouses even when they’re not on trend. It’s cause they make for easy-breezy summer dressing. They can be worn with shorts like how Taylor wears them; they can be worn with denim pants, and as Kourtney showed us, pencil skirts as well.
