This top has all my favorite things rolled into one package: stripes, peplum and a bow tie! It's a spunky juxtaposition between casual and formal, with the tank top shape and formal bow tie, and bears a striking resemblance to a (much pricier) runway look. You could wear it under a black blazer for work, or check out some other work-appropriate options below. Would you wear this top?
