Cropped

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.

(Zara blazer; Nasty Gal crop top; Club Monaco skirt; Sondra Roberts clutch; Fendi shoes & bracelet)


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!

  21. the last time I styled a crop top was this summer and I combined it with denim shorts. but combining with a pencil skirt has been on my mind as well, so maybe next year when summer comes again :) because it sure looks as great as I have thought it would!

  47. I LOVE the way you kept this look super minimalistic. The crop top and high wasted skirt look as though they were made to wear exclusively with one another. Perfection! Definitely heading on over to Nasty Gal to find that crop top for myself xx
