Crop Tops, a word that tends to ensue facial disapproval either by a scowl, grimace, head shake or the ever popular eye roll. They are on every corner & on every person. Crop Tops have been given a bad reputation mostly because they are so easily worn wrong & not because of the person wearing them….ok sometimes it is the person (common sense, come on people). So I’m here to defend the piece & to give you some of my best tips on how to keep a crop top classy; a challenge that I’m willing to accept. Taking it all the way back to high school with this lovely outline. LOL
- ALWAYS pair with something high-waisted
- You want a crop top to accentuate your smallest part which is normally your high waist. Remember, the goal is to show your midriff NOT your belly.
- Balance with other classic pieces
- Streamlined/straight lines, Classic silhouettes
- Premium Denim
- Simple Jewelry
- Compensate for less coverage
Omgosh guys, I literally just gave you the ABC’s of Crop Tops. I crack myself up. Ok, so you obviously don’t have to do all three of the above every time to make a crop top work but usually if you combine one or two of the above you will be set. For the above look, I made sure to pair the top with a high-waisted LuLaRoe Lucy skirt & I also compensated for less coverage by the exaggerated sleeves on the top.
Also, can we just talk about these shoes for a second. LuLaRoe came out with these AMAZING slip-ons for summer for retailers.This pair is a blush pink leather with embroidered colorful florals – They are my new fave for summer & they WILL be coming with me to convention in July!
I hope this post helps you in all of your crop top ventures.
