As the summer days rapidly approach, hemlines begin to rise. Alongside, higher waisted bottoms are what’s in and are commonly paired with a tucked in T-shirt. However, this trendy Fashionista made a bold statement and ventured for the hot crop top and mixed it with another summer trend, tie-dye, to achieve this outstanding outfit. The outcome: a comfortable and cool yet completely chic look on a beautiful day.
As this top becomes more and more popular around Wheaton College's campus, I have absolutely come to adore it. It can go with everything from shorts, skirts, jeans to even leggings. Additionally, it can be paired with any type of shoe as well.
While walking to lunch, I came across this week’s Fashionista. Her black crop top and rounded shades show off her fun side while her high-waisted, wide leg printed pants give off her personal style. Simplicity goes a long way in an outfit, and this doll highlights her details just the perfect way.
Since more retailers such as American Apparel are carrying shirts like this Fashionista’s, many are able to find one that fits their true style and taste. This item works in any color, style and with any type of accessory. For those on a budget, go to the local consignment store and grab a larger t-shirt and cut the body for the shorter cropped look. A vintage-inspired concert T-shirt, such as this one from Urban Outfitters, works perfectly and gives a touch of punk.
If you want to dress this look up, try something a little more fancy like this crochet top from Free People. This top is a triple threat with its mix of delicacy, edge and glamour. But don’t forget that in the end you truly make the outfit. Crop tops are just like us, as they come in different sizes, shapes and colors. Have the confidence and anyone can work this gem. So, like this daring Fashionista, try taking your look to a shorter level!
