Keep It Short!
Hello everyone! So a recent fashion trend that I am absolutely in love with is the crop top. It goes with jeans, it goes with skirts, it literally just goes with everything. I know that summer is over, so some of you may be thinking, why would we want crop tops now, it’s getting too cold for that. However, there are some great ways to style these crop tops with winter-ready outfits. One example is to pair a long-sleeve crop top with a high-waisted skirt. These skirts are the ones with the elastic band around the waist, they’re known in a lot of stores as skater skirts. They are a bit longer, and sit right on your waist, which makes them perfect with the crop top. Just a little strip of skin will peek through, and you have an adorable outfit that you won’t freeze in. Another idea is to, when it gets even colder, add some tights under the skirt, and pair it with some cute ankle boots or combat boots. This will give the sweet skirt a bit of an edgier look, and still keep you warm. A great way that I saw a similar outfit worn was in an older episode of Pretty Little Liars. Those girls always have amazing styles, and it is my goal to be able to replicate those looks. One of the characters had a black, 3/4 long sleeve crop top, and she paired it with a blue skater skirt and blue converse. The whole outfit was adorable, and I only hope that my copy cat outfit looks just as good. It’s casual enough to walk around your campus in, yet it is also perfect for a day or night out with friends. Outfits like that are my favorite, because with a quick hair and makeup change you can change your look from day to night, without really changing your outfit. Another great switch from day to night would be to change the converse to a great pair of black pumps for your night out. I have attached a picture of a crop top I just purchased from Urban Outfitters, and it would go great with either a colored skirt, or a plain black one. A great pair black pumps (I love Steve Madden) will really complete this outfit and create a perfect date night/girls night out outfit for this coming fall season.
