American Eagle Striped Crop Top

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…

Crop Top: American Eagle, Skirt: M for Mendocino, Necklace: Fredrick Prince, Bag: Sneha Varma, Shoes: Rosegold from eLUXE

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.

I chose to style my outfit with my favourite white Sneha Varma bag and my new heels from eLUXE with the most adorable mint green ankle straps. I like the fresh pop of pastel on my shoes.

If you want to dress it down, you could wear this outfit with a cute pair of flats and a fedora!

    Absolutely LOVE this. I’m not a huge fan of the crop top – I never show my tummy – but this I could definitely do!

    Love the shoes, and your subtle ombre looks AMAZE! I’m headed to Hair on the Avenue next week for a subtle ombre, I hope it looks as good on my dark locks as it does on your blonde!

    Hi Nicole, I so totally enjoy reading you! Can’t quite see myself trying the crop top, but I agree that we should push a little beyond our comfort zone! Keep the blogs coming, this is your niche!
