Crop Top Love


Crop Top Fashion Trend Spring 2013

crop-topThe newest trend this Spring seems to be crop tops. I am obsessed with this new look but I realize it is not a fashion trend that everyone can wear but I do love how unique and playful an outfit can look and it definitely screams summer ready.

Some quick Dos and Don’ts for crop top style fashions:

Do: Pick the appropriate length crop top. In my opinion I think longer tops are easier to wear but again it depends on where you are planing on wearing this outfit.

Do: Make sure the proportions are right. As you go shorter on top with your crop top, make sure your bottoms are also going higher.

Do: Keep everything in balance. If you’re going flowy on top, don’t go voluminous on bottom. So, if you’re going with a tight crop top, stick with a loose or high-waist bottom.

Don’t: Wear your crop tops at all the wrong events. Weddings, funerals, graduations, church events, and conservative parties are all out!

Don’t: Show too much skin! This is probably one of the easiest mistakes to make. If you’re wearing an extremely tiny, tight crop top with some tiny daisy dukes, you’re really not doing this trend justice. And you simply look trashy.

There are several styles: The feminine Crop Top, The Boxy Crop Top, The Sporty Crop Top and the Minimal Tailored Crop Top. The pictures below show the different styles in appropriate order. It has been so much fun looking through all the different designer’s take on this trends and here are some of my favourite.
