May 18th, 2015 at 2:10am

Summer is quickly approaching and that means it’s time to combat the skymhigh temperatures with a closet staple—the crop top. A fashion favorite at music festivals, brunch dates and beach days, crop tops are the quintessential summer accessory. If you haven’t stocked up on this season’s cropped picks, this Fashionista will surely inspire you to do just that.

The crop top buffet is stock full of different patterns, prints and materials perfect for any style be it grunge, classic or feminine. With so many options, it’s nearly impossible to not find your perfect crop top. If you’re uncomfortable with showing a bit of skin, then high-waisted bottoms are ideal. Pair it with a flowy high rise skater skirt and you can save your outfit from those annoying bumps and lumps you get when you try tucking in your shirt.

Maybe you’re splurging on a big trip this summer so you’d rather not buy a whole new wardrobe? Crop tops are an easy DIY and a great chance to revamp your wardrobe for next to nothing, or even better–for free. This Fashionista gets creative and reworks a white button-up—another closet staple. If you have an older sibling or boyfriend this is the perfect opportunity to raid their closet and make your own.
