Trend Report: Crop tops

Last summer, the crop top made it’s grand re-appearance at music festivals, and patio parties everywhere. And while exposed midriffs are not for everyone, this trend has made significant strides since it’s reign over fashion from the late 90s.

This season, crop tops have moved even further from their bubble gum pop roots, and have entered into a more sophisticated look. Pairing them with a high-waisted pencil skirt and under a blazer are great ways of dressing them up. While those who dare to be bold can try wearing a crop top under a leather jacket, with a pair of mid to high rise jeans.

Pairing a this more casual tie-back top with a lace overlay skirt is a great way to add a little more playfulness into the outfit.

Toss on a leather jacket and instantly take a floral print from girly to bad-ass. Opt for a form fitting skirt with a higher waist, or high-rise skinny jeans to complement the top –in this case, less is often more!

Try layering a colorful crop under a sheer, or loose top. It will feel less bulky and is a cute way to add a pop of color and tailored detail to an otherwise ‘oversized’ look. Shop the look here.
