It's about that time of the year when we start thinking about our summer wardrobe. As it gets it hotter, I often find myself thinking about trips I want to take, and preparing for convention season! One wardrobe staple for summer wardrobes, is the crop top. It's such a versatile piece that can be worn so many cute ways, and dressed up or down. In this blog post, let's get into 10 ways to style your crop tops, so that you can keep it cute all summer long!
High-Waisted Denim Shorts and a Crop Top
There's something about high-waisted denim shorts and a crop top that screams summer. This look is perfect for a day out with friends or a trip to the beach. For a kawaii minimalist twist, pair your crop top with shorts that have a unique design or subtle detailing, like frayed hems or embroidered patches.
Oversized Blazer and a Crop Top
For a chic and sophisticated look, pair your crop top with an oversized blazer. This combination is perfect for a work meeting or a dinner date. Choose a blazer in a neutral color like black or beige to keep things minimal, or go for a bold statement with a bright color or pattern.
High-Waisted Trousers and a Crop Top
For a more dressed-up look, pair your crop top with high-waisted trousers. This combination is perfect for a night out or a formal event. Choose trousers in a neutral color like black or navy, or go for a bold color or pattern to make a statement. For a kawaii minimalist twist, pair your outfit with minimalist jewelry like a simple necklace or a pair of stud earrings.
Midi Skirt and a Crop Top
For a feminine and elegant look, pair your crop top with a midi skirt. This combination is perfect for a wedding or a fancy brunch. Choose a skirt in a light fabric like chiffon or silk for a flowy and romantic look. For a kawaii minimalist twist, choose a skirt in a pastel color like lavender or baby blue.
Distressed Denim Jeans and a Crop Top
For a more casual look, pair your crop top with distressed denim jeans. This combination is perfect for a day out running errands or grabbing lunch with friends. Choose jeans in a light wash for a summery look, or go for a dark wash for a more edgy vibe. For a kawaii minimalist twist, pair your outfit with minimalist sneakers like white Converse or Adidas Superstars.
Wide-Legged Pants and a Crop Top
For a bohemian-inspired look, pair your crop top with wide-legged pants. This combination is perfect for a music festival or a day out in the city. Choose pants in a light fabric like linen or cotton for a breezy and comfortable look. For a kawaii minimalist twist, choose pants in a muted color like sage or blush.
For a sleek and sophisticated look, pair your crop top with monochrome pieces. Whether it’s black, white, or a bold color, this styling trick will give your outfit a high-fashion edge. Pair a black crop top with black high-waisted pants and statement heels for a chic night out look. Or, opt for a monochrome tracksuit with a crop top for a trendy and comfortable streetwear vibe.
Layering is a fun and creative way to style a crop top, especially in cooler months. Pair a crop top with a denim jacket or oversized cardigan for a casual and effortless look. Add some edge to your outfit by layering a mesh crop top over a tank top or bralette. Finish the look with high-waisted pants or a midi skirt for a balanced silhouette.
Athleisure is all about comfort and style, and a crop top can easily fit into this trend. Pair a crop top with high-waisted leggings and sneakers for a workout-ready look. Or, dress up the look by adding a blazer or oversized denim jacket. This chic and comfortable outfit is perfect for running errands or meeting up with friends.
If you’re feeling bold and want to make a statement, opt for a crop top in a bold print. From animal print to floral patterns, a printed crop top can add some fun and flair to your outfit. Pair a printed crop top with neutral bottoms to let the top be the star of the show. Or, mix prints by pairing a striped crop top with polka dot pants. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, and have fun with your outfit!
