With the heat of summer in full force, I often find it difficult to balance style with comfort. The season I am most comfortable with is fall since I have always loved layers, but with the heat of summer, less is more. Enter the crop top. The crop top is stylish, subtly sexy and always flattering. This Fashionista fights the summer heat and shows off a great tan with her white crop top with lace shoulder detail and a brightly printed white and blue skirt.

Crop tops are often hard to style because of the question of length. Different bottoms can be paired with shorter or longer cropped styles. Since this Fashionista paired her crop top with a high-waisted skirt, she chose a shorter crop. However, when donning a pair of jeans, a slightly longer crop is better suited paired with a statement necklace. Crop tops are also perfect when combined with flowing bottoms since the tightness of the top offsets the bottoms, showing off the figure of the wearer. Finally, a recent trend featuring crop tops and skirts in matching patterns is all the rage and definitely another example to take advantage of when rocking a crop top this summer

Although crop tops are perfect for the summer, they can also be worn in the fall, paired with jeans and a chunky sweater. Crop tops can be worn in multiple seasons, which is why it is essential to have at least one in your closet.
