A trend that began to make waves last summer and will (unsurprisingly) continue to dominate our wardrobes right into the new year: the crop top!
Yes, baring your mid-riff has never been more stylish. A seasoned crop-top lover, I can totally imagine myself living in crop tops every single day of the week, and when I say this I mean it. If you’re yet to jump on the crop-top bandwagon, here’s some inspiration for the week ahead!
Monday Meetings: Business Chic
Manic Mondays that have you running from one meeting to another require you to look sharp and mean business. But unlike the common perception, it’s actually quite easy to pull off crop tops at work. Throw on a blazer over your crop top, pair it with trousers and button up for a more professional appearance when making a presentation. Go the casual way post-meetings - just throw the jacket carelessly across your shoulders. So chic!
Mall Tuesdays: Fun with Matching Prints
A girl loves her dose of retail therapy, and what better way to spend a Tuesday than shopping the day away! Matching prints are big this season and a striped crop top paired with a matching well-fitted skirt is a great option for a long day at the mall. The best part about matching combos is the possibility of teaming the individual pieces with other favourites from your closet - a fashion girl’s ultimate high!
Wednesday Brunch: BFFs in Style!
Perfect for a mid-week brunch with your girl-friends, a denim crop top paired with a bright-hued maxi skirt makes for a great go-to outfit. Keep the makeup and jewellery minimal to let your outfit do the talking. Go ahead and complete the look with a straw hat and wedges!
Festive Thursday: Traditional Weekday
Who says crop tops are too modern for a traditional affair? Team your most basic solid-hued crop top with a lehenga
or brocade palazzo pants, and style it with jewellery that best defines your personality. Layer statement pieces for a slightly OTT look, or just choose a maang tika
and statement earrings.
Friday by the Beach: Casual Fridays
Friday calls for unwinding and some much needed time-off by the sea. Slip into a comfy pair of overalls and pair it with a crop top to make your look effortless. High on both comfort and style, this outfit is easily one of my best ones!
Saturday Nights: Sexy and Stylish
Saturday nights are all about upping the fashion game. Put your most fashionable foot forward by teaming your crop top with a maxi skirt with thigh-high slit and exercise some Dylan Lex inspiration with layered oxidized jewellery. When it comes to hair, it’s all about "go big or go home" on a Saturday night.
Hippie Sundays: Boho Babe Alert
A Sunday outing such as a music festival is the best place to bring out the hippie in you! An Aztec print crop top paired with bright dhoti
pants is all your need to make a statement in a crowd. Not too comfortable about baring the mid-riff? Team your crop top with a vest for some peek-a-boo skin show.
