Crop it Like It's Hot
Posted by Jintao Du on
With the temperature rising and the days becoming longer, summer fashion trends are officially on our radar. We are welcoming back denim shorts, floral dresses, graphic tees and of course, crop tops! Nothing screams ‘summer’ quite like a crop—they are stylish, versatile and perfect for our unforgiving summer weather!
Are Crop Tops In Style 2022?
Yes, yes, yes! We can't get enough of this trend and we don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. A reason for the crop's popularity is the many ways you can wear them. For instance, wear a bandeau style under a blazer for a warm-weather take on tailoring, or a halter style with a mini skirt for your next night out! There's so many cuts and styles to suit any invite you have this summer. For those looking to make a statement this season, take your cute crop top to a new level and embrace all things ‘extra’! We are talking about crops with puffy sleeves, embellishments and ties.
Whether you have an evening date, concert, party or outdoor brunch, we have some hot tips for how to bare your torso in style. You’re welcome.
1. Wear your crop top with a high-waisted skirt or pants to lessen the gap.
2. Remember, your crop doesn’t have to be super short or super fitted to look stunning!
3. Look for volume in the sleeves and shoulders as well as on your bottom half. It'll help you create an hourglass figure and give you the appearance of a smaller waist.
4. Throw a blazer over the top as an added layer of comfort. Too hot? Opt for a lightweight linen blazer or oversized shirt.
