STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Crop Top In The Cold Weather

Crop tops and cropped everything became a re-occuring fashion trend these past few years. While making a huge statement in ’80s, crop tops continue to make their mark in the fashion world with their tummy-bearing look. These itty-bitty shirts may seem to be difficult to pull off, but they are completely versatile. Before you store away the cropped favorites of your summer wardrobe in the attic, keep in mind that wearing a crop top is just as easy in the fall and winter as it is in the warm summer.

This Fashionista is our example. The temperature in New York City right now is about a few degrees above freezing. Yet she is rocking the street runway with this crop top. Call her crazy right? Nope! This crop look actually works in this case – take notes. This Fashionista snagged this super comfy, warm turtleneck crop top at H&M. All crop tops do not need to be tight or fitted so she recommends you to go for a more loose style like sweaters or even lighter fabrics. To balance out the top, she paired it with some high-waisted jeans and some classic booties. Matching a crop top with a high-waisted skirt or pair of jeans allows you do be more comfortable without fearing you may be bearing too much skin for the cold weather.

What is versatile about crop tops is that they look put together when they are under or over other essentials in your closet. Try pairing your long sleeve crop top over a cute button-up or throw a crop over your favorite bodycon dress for a casual feel. Since the crop top is so popular now, take a trip to the mall or on your favorite online shopping sites and you will see how many cropped options there actually really are.
