ALL IN THE DETAILS: Chopped and Cropped

Here in New York we are impatiently waiting for the summer heat to catch on. While trying to figure out the weather limbo, we can’t help but throw in a little optimism with crop tops and sandals. Personally I could find a way to wear crop tops all year round, and this Fashionista has perfectly found a way to do so as we await summer in full swing.

What I love about this Fashionista’s outfit choice most is the combination of the solid mustard button-up with the striped crop top and how the two together set the tone for the entire outfit. Yellow shades can be tricky to match with at times and with the contrast of the black and white stripes, they complement each other very well. She is effortlessly trendy and casual. This Fashionista is completes her ensemble with Madewell ripped black denim and black Birkenstock sandals.

To top off this detailed look, this Fashionista’s choice of accessories perfectly matches the tone. She incorporates a little gold, beads and a colorful threaded bracelet. In my opinion, if you’re going for a subtle or minimal choice of apparel, then a way to spice it up is accessories. On the other hand, if your outfit choice is loud enough, you don’t want to over-sprinkle the jewelry. Balance is key, ladies and gents! As with everything!

How To: Have you stayed away from bold yellow tones? Ready to break out the crop top? A chambray or vest is a perfect way to add any bold solid colors to your outfit and a little cover up for the crop top. As long as you are balancing with the colors, you can do it!
