HOW TO: wear crop tops.

HOW TO: Wear Crop Tops. I’ve decided to start a new section on my blog called HOW TO. I figured since my
e-mails mainly consist of readers asking how to wear specific items, how I do my hair, make up, and a slew of other questions – I’d approach them with a separate section. I’m always hesitant about purchasing crop tops because I honestly can;t imagine feeling comfortable with my stomach showing and not crossing over to trashy town. After SINGER22 got hit with a ton of crop tops, I figured I’d better make an effort to understand what to do with these shrunken things. After playing around I came to the conclusion that they only work with high waisted. High waisted skirts, shorts, jeans, pants, etc. Here are a few looks I put together with my favorite crop tops. If you are very uncomfortable with even a little bit of your stomach showing, a tank top can always be worn underneath. I think the contrast of a long necklace with these mini tops really balances it out nicely. In the third outfit I tested out a shorter necklace as well.
Which look is your favorite?

1. Top: Rebel Yell, Pants: Alexis, Shoes: Jefferey Campbell, Clutch: Juliette Jake, Necklace: Cynthia Dugan
2. Sunnies: Elizabeth and James, Shorts: RunwayDreamz, Top: Free People, Shoes: Sam Edelman, Necklaces: Carol Marie
3. Sunnies: Nicole Richie, Top: Free People, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Bag: RomyGold, Necklace: House of Harlow
