It's summer, and what better way to show off your lovely colors than with a crop top! But not every outfit is appropriate for wearing a crop top. That's why we've created this guide of five different outfits that will help you build your wardrobe while still looking fabulous in all of them. From casual wear to formal, our 5 Ways To Wear Crop Tops article has it all!
#1 Leopard Y2K Crop Top with Denim Pleated Skirt
Denim skirts have always been a summer staple, but this one is different. The skirt has a high-waisted fit, which gives it an elegant touch and the pleats add more depth. Altogether, they balance out and provide a look with both sass and sophistication!
#2 White High Neck Crop Top and Cargo Skirt
Show off your lovely colors & tones with a high-neck sleeveless crop top! This is a great option for a night out at a sushi restaurant with your besties, or play around and go to that party you've been wanting to go to, this set can be worn with just about anything (including this adorable cargo skirt). This outfit conveys style in many ways from the zipper fly skirt closure to the turtleneck collar.
This is a great outfit for summer and can be worn on any occasion. Furthermore, you can even accessorize it with a statement necklace or keep it simple.
#3 White Ribbed Short Sleeve Crop Top with High Waist Pleated Skirt
Ribbed short sleeves are in this season, and here is another great outfit idea with sleek sophistication. The ribbing on the crop top adds an interesting texture to the outfit while still looking classic. A white ribbed short sleeve crop top is perfect for summer, and you can pair it with a khaki high waisted pleated skirt. These two items are both great pieces that will always be trendy in the fashion industry during any part of the year. The pleats on this skirt add a feminine touch and are simple enough for any occasion. This streetwear style makes you immediately fit in with the current fashion trends.
#4 High Waist Ruched Cargo Pants and Gray Long Sleeve Crop Top
This is a combo of two trends that we don't see often enough - high waist cargo bottoms and long sleeve crop tops. The pants are very fitted on the waist and then flares out to accommodate a wide range of heights. The crop top is long enough for modesty, but still short enough to show off your curves. With embroidery on the front, this crop top adds more flare to your style.
#5 Halter Crop top and Ruched Mini Skirts
This combination is a perfect two-piece set for a casual day out. The top has an A-line silhouette, which is very flattering. The skirt flares out just below the waist and gives a feminine charm. This outfit is perfect for those days when you want to be casual but not necessarily show off too much skin. Furthermore, it gives you the flexibility to accessorize with a variety of necklaces, earrings, headbands, or whatever make-up you desire.
Bonus Styling Tips: Things You Should Consider
Prep your skin
Wearing a crop top is like having neon lights flashing at you- everyone will turn heads to look at you! Ensure that your skin is in prime shape with enough moisturization and sunscreen that can help resist the impulse to self-tan this summer.
Loosen up your hair
Streetwear styles should be played off cool. Have fun dressing up in your crop top with a low messy ponytail. Crop tops always work with your hair's natural texture and are the perfect no-fuss look for summer.
Be cautious of shapewear
Crop tops and shapewear are opposites on the wardrobe spectrum. But if you don't want to part with your Spanx, ensure that you wear a high-waisted skirt or pants to accommodate the shape.
The Bottom Line
If you're looking for ways to spice up your wardrobe, then crop tops might be the answer. Crop tops are perfect because they can be worn with anything from jeans to skirts and dresses. Hopefully with this article, we've given you some ideas about how best to wear these shorter shirts without having them over-expose too much skin for your liking. So get ready #axcidbabes it's time to rock those crop tops!
