So let’s talk crop tops! They’ve basically become a staple in a college girl’s closet and can be worn to virtually any occasion. They’ve been seen on celebrities like Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Cara Delevingne, and have really developed into a fashion must-have over the last few years. I mean walk into any trendy boutique or chain clothing store and they can be guaranteed to have some cool crop tops. The trend is taking over closets no matter the fashion personality—whether that is artsy, edgy or traditional. Crop tops are very versatile. You can wear them to a music festival with cut-off shorts and a flower headband and then dress that same top up with some printed pants, a pair of wedges and some statement earrings for a night out with the girls.

When I first saw this trend being worn, I thought it would be hard to pull off without rock hard abs and being model skinny, but to my surprise ANY girl can rock the crop. The goal of any outfit is to look and feel your best, and sometimes clothing can even make a statement. So when choosing a crop top, it is important to make sure it’s the right fit for you. That way you’ll look amazing, on trend and ready for anything!

When looking at this Fashionista’s outfit, you might look past the little details, but if you pay attention you can really see how chic she is. Her crop top is not vulgar or inappropriate and she shows her class with the delicate lace lining at the bottom. It allows just the right amount of skin to show with the pairing of her mosaic printed pants and strappy black sandals. Most importantly, this Fashionista’s outfit is in good proportion with her high-waisted pants!
