Style Advice of the Week

Here in Azusa two things are heating up— the temperature and amount of schoolwork assigned. As every week passes by, it seems like the weather is more like summer than spring, with temperatures in the eighties and nineties. The amount of assignments also seems to be growing. With all of this chaos, it’s easy to be frustrated with what to wear when it’s so hot and when schedules become so busy. One of the easiest ways to combat this frustration is to keep outfits simple and wear statement pieces, like the crop top this Fashionista is wearing.

This Fashionista’s staple item is a patterned crop top. This outfit is great for the hot weather and for finals season because all the pieces can be thrown on, and the outfit is so simple there is no need for accessorizing or complex hair styles. The black and white bohemian patterned crop top adds just enough interest to the outfit for this Fashionista to keep the rest of the outfit basic. She paired cuffed jeans with the crop top and coordinated with the black and white theme with a pair of white sandals.

The pieces needed to recreate this outfit can be purchased for a fairly inexpensive price. Also, many items in this outfit can already be found in your own closet. To purchase a patterned crop top like this Fashionsita’s, Forever 21 carries multiple styles at very affordable prices. If you don’t already own a pair of skinny blue jeans, PacSun carries a variety of skinny jeans with a fit to suit any body type. For a good pair of of T-strap sandals like the ones this Fashonista is wearing, Nordstrom is a good place to shop.

As temperatures rise and school work increases, your outfit doesn’t need to become a hot mess. Rocking a patterned crop top is a cheap and easy way to create a pulled together look when the sun is blazing hot, and the preparation for finals ramps up. Another benefit of the crop top trend is that they can be worn in a multitude of ways; not only can they be worn with jeans, but they can also be worn with a maxi-skirt or with shorts. Purchasing a crop top like this Fashionista’s is affordable, as well as a purchase you won’t regret making.
