The crop top has often been accused of being a passing trend, soon to fade into oblivion. However, it seems that this trend has endured, and I can’t say I am upset about it. Au contraire, I am quite pleased.
The crop top is so simple, yet can so easily make an outfit look cute and hip. This Fashionista shows us how to pair a crop top with a maxi dress. She wears a tan, short sleeve crop top over a long black maxi dress. The contrast of the loose boxy crop top with the fitted, tapered dress pairs beautifully. Together, her look is flattering and sophisticated.
This Fashionista does a great job of taking basics and layering them to make a cute daytime ensemble. The simplicity of her neutral tones is great. However, for a more flirty vibe, you can also try adding a colored or patterned crop top. Motel makes a great bright crop top, along with a fun patterned one. A similar look can be recreated by opting for a cropped sweater as well. I love this Spaced Out Cropped Knit.
To accessorize, follow this Fashionista's lead and try an assortment of summer bracelets, a simple gold chain and bright patterned moccasins. These accessories add color and energy to her basic ensemble. I especially love the combination of various bracelets on her wrist. She combines silver bangles with a few colorful friendship bracelets to give her classic bangles a hint of summer fun. You can do it too! Try pairing this Giles & Brother Hook Cuff with a few Sashi bracelets in different colors.
With just a few basic items, you can make a look that is fun, casual and not to mention, chic!
