I have been wanting to try a crop top for awhile now, but I have to admit I wouldn't really consider myself in crop top shape. When Ellie Clothing sent me this top and skirt, I was in love- but still a little hesitant. I just had to find the right way to wear it. I think everyone can jump on this trend, but you have to find how it works for you.
A few tips to wearing crop tops are below:
1. Pair them with a higher waisted jean or skirt. I folded this skirt over less than I typically would to prevent my midriff from showing too much. It made me feel much more covered and I still felt like I was rocking the trend and staying true to myself.
2. Pair it will a tank underneath. There is nothing wrong with layering a basic tank of black or white under the top. Or, better yet, a cropped tee shirt or sweater over a tank or blouse.
3. Layer over it. You can see I also did that with this look. Try layering a jacket or light sweater over the crop top so you feel more covered but are still exposing the front of the top.
Have you sported a crop top this season? Would you wear one with the tips above?
Thanks for reading as always! I am still in LA and haven't had a chance to explore yet, but Im hoping to get some exploring in!
