The dog days of summer are finally here! Summer internships are ending; the days are getting shorter but unfortunately the temperatures are still rising! Even in mid-August it is hard to see the cool evenings of September in sight, but on the bright side you don’t need to retire your crop tops and sandals just yet. The crop top has been a much talked about item this summer—how and when to wear one are just among a few of the debate topics on the subject. We have seen people wear them with anything from leggings to button-up skirts and everything in between, but one thing is for sure, crop tops are hot and the perfect piece to rock this season.
This Fashionista is sporting a cropped black halter top with a trendy white mandala printed on the front. She meticulously pairs her cropped top with a pair of light wash ripped jeans and a set of taupe Birkenstocks giving the look the right amount of chill to mellow out the bold statement of the top. The ripped jeans provide a sassy edge to what could be a softer look if paired with a floral skirt or flowy shorts.
Some other amazing aspects of this look are the clutch bag and pointy sunglasses which give off an essence effortlessness to this very well planned outfit. Despite the summery appeal of the crop top, this look can easily go from summer to fall by simply changing the shoes to booties and adding a sweater.
How To: To achieve the ultimate cool girl, summer look thrown on a pair of light wash distressed jeans, a dark colored cropped top and a pair of sandals. To dress it up for a night out with your girl squad, simply add a clutch bag and heels instead of flat sandals and sunglasses.
