let's crop to the chase

Fashion has its own way of repeating itself – even if the game changes here and there. 

First of all, crop tops have become an essential. I’m 
not saying each and every lady owns a pair, but from what I saw this summer, it’s a trend that seems to stay in the wardrobe of a girl. Crop tops are available at most of the mainstream stores; it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you. Recycling, or reusing, tees by cutting it into crop tops can also be fun. I did this with a few tees, sparing my allowance for other cool and nifty things to buy.

Of course, crop tops is not something to wear with just anything. Trashy is not the way to go.

A crop top can vary from lengths. It’s just a matter of how far you’d stretch your comfort zone by the amount of skin you’re willing to show off. A cut off tee, that shows minimal amount of skin, can be worn with any short or skirt. A crop that rises above the belly needs more attention. Pair it with a high waisted short or skirt. A plain short can be risky, but if you’re able to pull it off, why not. And then there’s the crop top that cuts off below the chest. This type of top can easily be associated with a bustier or a corset with the same length. It can be worn, as detail, under a loose or even see through top. It would look great with a high waisted maxi skirt. 

Though these are only key trends – the options are countless!

Comfort is key, so take care when trying this trend.

  2. I like crop tops but I´m a little bit scared of them as well because I´m not sure my stomach is that flat! Haha. But I would try that crop top + high waisted shorts/skirt trend as that is not too revealing.
