Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Barba – I am a fellow blogger within the Her Campus Blogging Network, just like Courtney. I blog over at The Trendy Times am a huge fan of the Daughter of a Son of a Sailor just like I’m sure many of you are! That being said – us HCBN bloggers love to help one another out here and there so I’m here to do just that by guest posting on Courtney’s blog!
Hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to check out, The Trendy Times or any of my social media linked above xo
Without further ado, here's her post on how to style crop tops (which is great because I'm totally scared to try this trend!!)
Suns out and you know what that means – high waisted shorts and crop top season is upon us, ladies! Who doesn’t love a good crop top now and again, am I right? However – as much as we all love rocking the crop tops, are we all doing it in the right manner? Of course, fashion is in the eye of the beholder and your style, is your style but there’s definitely a fine line between right and wrong when it comes to rocking a crop top. If done right the look is to die for, if it’s done wrong it’s just no good. I’m here to show you 3 ways you CAN rock a crop top! Let’s get into it!
Look 1 – Crop Top & A Skater Skirt
I absolutely love this duo - a crop top and a skater skirt! It gets better with the fact that the top is lace and the skirt is leather – could you just die? This shows a little skin, keeping it sexy, but the top is a high neckline and doesn’t reveal too much further. It’s the perfect outfit for a holiday party or even a date if you wanted to be a little more daring! Love this look!
Look 2 – Crop Top & High Waisted Jean Shorts
It doesn’t get more basic than this outfit my friends – every girl owns a pair of high waisted jean shorts that she either made, or bought to make it look like she did, that she loves to pair with her crop tops. It’s the perfect combination for so many different occasions. I love when people rock this look to concerts – it’s perfect, and comfortable, exactly what you want for longer events. It may not be appropriate for all events, but for more casual summer days and nights you have yourself a winning outfit with the crop top and high waisted jean shorts! Love, love, love!
Look 3 – Keeping It Conservative As Possible with a Crop Top
Yes – you can be conservative in a crop top. Pairing it with a high waisted, longer bodycon skirt leaves you looking sexy and covered up. This is the perfect outfit for any more fancy night that may require a lot of pictures to be taken and a lot of faces to be seen. You are covered up in a crop top – magic. Perfection!
As mentioned before – your style is your style. So that being said, wear what makes you feel beautiful and comfortable. At the end of the day it’s not what you’re wearing but how you wear it. Own your outfit – the streets are your runway; ladies (and gents, of course) so act like it!
