The weather is warming up and that means finding outfits that are not only fashionable but will also keep you cool. So how do you accomplish this while remaining stylish? Two words: crop top. Crop tops are my go-to piece for a summer wardrobe. They’re stylish and offer some relief from the scorching summer sun.

Crop tops were a trend in the past and are not on their way out yet. They’re seen on celebrities and on the runway. Oscar de la Renta’s spring 2015 runway show immediately comes to mind. This fashion designer made the crop top appear elegant. He paired the latter with pencil skirts, A-line skirts and more. The show offered a wide selection of styles for his spring collection utilizing the crop top. But how did our Fashionista style her crop top?

This Fashionista focused on a more laid back, comfortable summer look. Her black crop top is loose toward the bottom allowing her to stay cool. She paired her crop top with white shorts. Her bright red and white Converse not only add a pop of color but also match her white shorts with the white in her shoes. This Fashionista accessorized her outfit with silver jewelry. Her two bracelets are different in design, adding an element of fun. She not only has bracelets but a ring and silver studs to complete her crop top look.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Crop tops are a good piece of clothing to wear in the summer because they flow freely instead of clinging to you.”
