The runways have been full of models baring their midriffs for a few seasons now, but many girls are still clueless on how to wear a crop top. How do you pull it off without looking like an extra from Saved by the Bell? We’ve found six different ways to wear one, courtesy of the spring 2015 shows and the coolest real-girl bloggers.
Don’t be afraid to go for an all-over print
Matching your handbag to your shoes may be dated, but matching your crop top to your skirt is the latest thing. Whether you go for an understated pattern or a bold, brash print, like the bright florals at the Michael Kors show, you’ll look like a street-style star.
Pair with a kimono and skinny jeans for a rock-star look
Doesn’t blogger Kirby Joanna look like she just got off stage in this outfit? The kimono lends the crop top a Stevie Nicks vibe, while the skinnies keep her looking modern.
Try it with a long skirt for a more modest look
Hesitant to show a lot of skin? Make like the models at Rebecca Taylor’s spring show and try your top with a flowing maxi or midi skirt. You’ll look gorgeous and feel comfortable.
Go ahead, play with textures
A lace crop top and a leather jacket , like blogger Danielle Dehardt is wearing here, go together like Anna Wintour and Vogue. Velvet and denim or silk and tweed would also look amazing.
Wear it with a long jacket and pencil skirt for a ladylike look
We like to think that if Jackie O. was alive, and just a tiny bit more sartorially adventurous, she’d be wearing this Oscar de la Renta ensemble.
Go all out and embrace the nineties vibe
Don’t you feel like this outfit on blogger Indiya is the kind of thing Cher Horowitz probably wore after she started dating grunger Josh? A crop top lends itself well to a ’90s-inspired outfit, so bring on the tall socks and lace-up booties!
