SUMMER CROP TOP – Crop tops have truly proved their fashion resilience in the last 3 decades. From gray cropped crewnecks + neon leggings in the 80s to the two-piece evening gowns taking the Red Carpet by storm, the crop top is always a summer staple. This skin-baring top is sexy, chic, and sophisticated all at the same time, but only when done right. Initially, the thought of a crop-top sounds a bit terrifying (trust me, I know!). But being able to pull off a crop top does not automatically mean showing your belly button! There are plenty of ways to classily wear a crop top so you’re only showing a demure hint of skin.
My favorite summer crop top look is always paired with a flirty flared skirt and I absolutely adore this floral + animal print Mary Katrantzou twill skirt. Not only is it high-waisted, but the bold florals and obvious animal prints are so on trend this season! To balance out the busy pattern and bright colors, I wore this black Zara Studio crop top. The asymmetrical hemline shows only a small triangle of my stomach, which I think is so classy and trendy. And since it’s black, you can wear this all year round.
You could pair this look with a simple white clutch or black heels, but I was feeling fun and wanted to brighten up this outfit. And what better way to do that than with hot pink accessories! The overall color palette of this look was fairly dark, so I pulled the hints of magenta from the skirt and paired it with a hot pink Céline shoulder bag and magenta Louboutin heels. Top it off with a pair of Chloe sunnies and your crop top look is complete!
