The humidity is almost unbearable here in Chicago. It seems that no matter what I wear, I’m still uncomfortable and hot. Anything more than a tank top means sweat stains galore but cut-off shorts are a no-no for work. So, what is a Fashionista to do when almost everything you wear causes you to sweat as if we lived on the sun? One of the biggest problems of dressing during the summertime is trying to simultaneously stay cool and tasteful. We all want to be able to sit outside and enjoy the weather for more than a few minutes, but less clothing is not always the right answer. This week’s Fashionista shows us the perfect outfit that will keep you cool with just the right amount of sexy.
Crop tops are a staple piece of mine. With the increased popularity of high-waisted shorts and pants, crop tops are essential to top off many of my outfits. When I saw this Fashionista’s beaded crop top, I knew I had to take a picture. The beading enhances the intricate pattern of the top. For me, fashion is all about being unique and this beaded top fits the mold perfectly. With no straps, this top is also flirty and perfect for a night out.
Crop tops are daring because they give a sneak peek of skin. That’s why it’s very important for Fashionistas to pair crop tops accordingly. One of the biggest mistakes a Fashionista can make is showing too much skin. Wearing low-rise pants with a crop top takes your outfit from venturesome to wanton. Take a tip for our Fashionista and pair it with light wash, high-waisted shorts for a casual look.
