3 Ways to Update Your Crop Top Ensembles

Crop tops have come a long way. From basic deconstructed tees for off-duty days, to super tight tops to
complement a figure-hugging skirt for fun yet fancy evenings, these midriff-baring pieces have certainly
undergone a style revolution. This season, we can find crop tops in a plethora of styles –from ruffled
sleeves, lettuce-edged hems and asymmetrical necklines –these modest-sized tops, can definitely steal
the spotlight from its longer-sized counterparts.
An Ode To Summer
Nothing says summer than with a refreshing mélange of sweet pastels, billowy sleeves, flirty floral
prints, playful plaids and sultry lace accoutrements. A crop top is anything but basic when sporting
these scene-stealing details. Whether heading to a music festival, a pool party or going on a road trip
for the weekend, these casual yet dressy tops will turn the most mundane event into a sartorial foray.
Pair these perfect-for-spring tops with high waist flared pants or itsy-bitsy cut-offs, then complete
the look with roman sandals, ankle booties, slides or block-heeled sandals. Accessorize with a Panama
hat, fringe earrings and a crossbody bag.
Bold Ruffles
You may be baring your midsection, but that does not mean that crop tops are only reserved for daytime.
Designers have elevated these miniature blouses, courtesy of glamorous ruffles, elegant fabrics and
striking silhouettes. Ruffles paired with a sophisticated neckline for instance, can take you from a
romantic dinner to a frenzied girls’ night out. Pair it with sleek leather pants and pin-thin heels to
complete the feminine and edgy look. Another option is a cropped velvet top that would look luscious
with a pencil skirt or wide leg pants for a cool, subtly sexy ensemble.
Everyday Chic
Whether for a coffee rendezvous or a shopping date with the ladies, there is a crop top for every mood
and morning. These extra tiny crop tops are for a casual, fun and carefree dress code that spells
relaxed and effortless, but still fun, feminine and chic. Whether it’s a leaf printed top with a button
front, or an asymmetrical polka dot kind, easily pair these tops with your comfiest high waist jeans,
denim skirt or culottes. Complete your girl about town look with slides, mules, booties or white
sneakers. And for a touch of retro glam, tie your hair with a printed head wrap.
