Croppin'

::Top and skirt c/o Ellie Clothing  (similar here, here, here and here), Hat Old Navy (similar here and here), jean Jacket (here), Necklace (gifted), Bag Michael Kors (love pink), Shoes c/o Lulus, rings c/o Galsify, David Yurman, etc, sunnies Kate Spade::

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!

  7. I like that your top has two layers, so you can rock the trend but still feel covered.
