Style Advice of the Week

I am glad to announce that crop tops are here to stay! Even though it’s winter, South Carolina is just warm enough to still “Crop it like it’s hot.” Sorry for yet another Snoop Dogg reference. These tiny tops are continuing to make their way onto the runways and unlike Snoop Dogg (who is better left in the ’90s), I have to say I’m glad this trend has made a comeback. Now that we’ve seen people show their midriffs for a couple of seasons, it’s important to keep this look fresh and updated.

This Fashionista is a perfect example of how to look fashion forward while wearing a crop top. Her matching checkered crop top and skirt set is adorable! Separate pieces with the same pattern give an outfit a sense of uniformity, which looks extremely chic. When you’re wearing an all over print just make sure the print isn’t too large. The small checkers on this Fashionista’s ensemble aren’t overpowering or distracting. These twin sets have become extremely popular from the runways to red carpets. I’m so glad they are finally hitting the streets of USC!

She completes her outfit with a black and gold bag, suede booties, black tights and lots of silver accessories. These items are simple and complement her bold patterned top and bottom flawlessly.

This week I encourage you to be “matchy-matchy!” Don’t be afraid to try this daring look. This Fashionista shows us that being trendy pays off!
