Not sure how to style a crop top? I’ve got four easy ideas so you can rock that crop top and feel confident!
Crop tops are great for comfort, especially in the summer months, and they make a great staple piece that you can wear with a lot of different outfits. However, a lot of people steer clear of crop tops because they don’t really know how to wear them or they feel too exposed. But if you know how to build an outfit around them, they will soon become one of your favorite pieces. I’ve got some of the best styling tips for wearing crop tops.
Match With Denim
One of the best ways to style a crop top is by matching it with denim. It’s simple and chic, but you can also add additional accessories such as belts and chokers to dress up your look. Make sure to wear wide-leg or looser-fitting jeans in order to give you a lot of legroom. If you feel too exposed while wearing a crop top, add a denim or faux leather jacket over the top. Denim on denim can be controversial, but it can look super chic if you break it up with a simple black crop top.
Another great way to wear crop tops is by mixing prints. It’s really easy because you just need to pick different prints that are in the same color scheme, for example, plaid with polka dots or lace with animal print. This will create an even more stylish look than wearing a solid-colored crop top and matching bottom, so it’s definitely worth a try.
Wear A Belly Ring or Body Jewelry
Another way to style your crop top is to add body jewelry. If you have a belly button piercing why not show it off. Now I’m not telling you to run off and get a piercing but the 90s are back so if you have one why not show it off? So, if you’re going with a crop top, make the most of it and get some nice dangle belly rings to add a bit of sparkle to your outfit. This is a great way to accessorize a simple crop top outfit and elevate it to a new level. If you don’t have a piercing you can achieve a similar look with a belly chain.
Wear With High-Waisted Trousers
It can be interesting to wear a crop top with high-waisted trousers because it’s so unexpected. However, you need to make sure that the crop top is short enough so that you get a little peek of skin. This will instantly create a more flattering silhouette for your body and elevate even the simplest outfit. It’s a great choice if you want the comfort of a crop top but you don’t want to feel too exposed. High-waisted jeans look great with a simple black crop top, but you could also experiment with some bold prints and colors too.
If you are building a capsule wardrobe and you need some basic tops, make sure to add a crop top to your collection. A basic black one pairs well with all sorts of different outfits, so you’ll get plenty of wear out of it.
