STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Crop Tops for Men

Crop tops were feminine garments once popularized by Madonna in the ’80s, but today crop tops can be worn by men as well.

This Fashionisto embraced the unpredictable weather of the season with this fresh idea. Crop tops are perfect for those days that toe the line between hot and cold. Adding a few plain-colored basics to your closet can save the day (you can thank me later). He’s wearing a basic gray tank top, a white crop top, black jeans, white sneakers and a hat. The crop top is loose rather than tightly fitted, however. It’s thrilling the way that he rocks the crop top by layering it with a tank top so it doesn’t look like too much. Then, he dons a pair of black jeans and white sneakers. The accessories of the look, which complete this casual, cool vibe, include a black snapback and a military ID tag.

Style is all about thinking outside the box and going where no one has gone before. It’s great to see men getting out of their comfort zones and creating bold looks as this Fashionista does. This innovative pairing of pieces creates a relaxed, chic look. Men often ignore fashion trends and simply settle for the “normal guy” look. As a design student, this Fashionisto illustrates that trying new things is an awesome way to start looking different and getting the attention that all the Fashionista/os want.
