Last season's exploration of the crop top reemerged during several New York Fashion Week SS14 shows, including Jill Stuart, Balenciaga, Thakoon, and Rodarte to name a few. While it may seem difficult to incorporate crop tops into one's wardrobe, when styled correctly, it can create a sexy yet sophisticated "skin-is-in" moment.

I felt inclined to pair my crop top with a high-waisted pencil skirt for a more feminine and less revealing approach to the trend. To add more dimension to the solid colors, I chose a geometric clutch and metallic cut-out sandals. I also enjoy the outfit's versatility, because it could transition to an office-appropriate number by altering a few elements such as buttoning my blazer, wearing pumps, and using a tote.
What do you think about my look, and how would you style the crop top? Thank you for reading!
