Style Advice of the Week

It’s officially summer! Tis’ the season for barbecue cook outs, bonfires and of course the time for rearranging our closets. We ditch the dull and make room for those bright summer tops and short summer shorts, and while over time our shorts have become shorter, we’ve now changed gears and are starting to see our tops shorten as well. Yes, I’m talking about crop tops.

While Miley Cyrus’ may have induced this crop top craze as she wore a white crop top in her recent music video of “We Can’t Stop,” this photographed Fashionista looks brilliant in this more casual and classy lace crop top. While some of the other crop tops we’ve seen are much tighter and shorter, this top seems to be, in my opinion, the perfect length, for you could wear this grocery shopping or running other various errands without feeling totally exposed.

Not to mention the color. This perfect shade of purple looks fantastic with a summer tan. Also, while we may be in the midst of summer, it can still get chilly here in our windy town of Bowling Green. This particular Fashionista outsmarted the weather and decided to pair her top with a white wrap. This light and airy three quarter length sleeve is just what is needed for cool summer days/nights. Pair these tops with regular denim shorts like this Fashionista did or even dare to pair the outfit with a colored high-waisted pair of denim.

Lastly, don’t forget to accessorize! Put this all together and you have an effortless casual look for those relaxing summer days. Now get out there and rock your crop top like Miley would, and enjoy the beautiful summer weather.
