- Gypsy style
Nothing screams gypsy more than a darling little peasant top. This is a must-have in every Boho girl’s wardrobe. Wear it with loose and flowy pieces, with layers or with other gypsy style clothing pieces you have in your closet to complete the look. Also, be sure to look out for details like crochet, organic design patterns, lace, and fringe that are sure to add to the overall gypsy feel of your look and don’t forget to add accessories that will take your look to the next level.
- Off shoulder
Off shoulder peasant tops have a very chic and sexy look to them. You can wear them with something relaxed and laidback to achieve more of that gypsy inspired look or you can wear them with something a little more posh and sophisticated like a figure flattering pencil skirt to create a street style outfit that will have everyone turning their necks as you pass by.
- With prints and patterns
If you’re someone who is used to wearing fun and interesting pieces all the time, you may find the peasant top a little boring. It is, after all, a very simple piece of clothing item. If you’re not into very clean and simple looks, though, you can always opt for a peasant top with prints and patterns, especially ones with embroidery details, as these have a more interesting look to them.
