As I get older, I find it easier to get in to a routine and shy away from trends that I use to embrace in my youth. This season, crop tops are everywhere and it’s an easy trend to shy away from for most people – so naturally, I’ve endeavoured to work it in to my wardrobe to share my styling tips with you! My friends at American Eagle recently sent me this adorable striped crop top…
I’ll admit it, I probably wouldn’t buy this top (or any crop top for that matter) in-store. That’s the beauty of being a fashion blogger though – always pushing me out of my comfort zone! When American Eagle asked me and two blogger friends (Anum of Summerxskin and Katelyn of The Skinny Blonde Girl) to share our crop top style on the Bloggers Do It Better segment of their blog, I had to step up to the challenge!
The neutral and casual nature of this crop top makes it super easy to style. I’m not a fan of exposing my midriff so I chose to style it with a high-waisted pleated skirt and simple accessories.
Even though I’m a dainty old lady in my mind, the outfit looks super youthful and love the way it came together! The crop top is made of soft and simple stretch jersey and it’s just the right length for most of my high-waisted skirts, shorts or pants. I could also throw it over a maxi dress for a layered summer look. I love the scoop back – it’s such an elegant detail.
If you want to dress it down, you could wear this outfit with a cute pair of flats and a fedora!
