One of summer’s must-have look is the short cropped top paired with high-waist pants. Both A-list celebrities and supermodels wear skin-baring tops and look great on it. Most young ladies limit the crop tops to weekends only in as much as they are not considered appropriate for the office. However, there are creative ways to wear the cropped tops, tank tops and bralettes.
A crop top can be hidden under a buttoned blazer and no one in the office will notice the skin showing. During summer, the crop top can be used to layer while still keeping the cool. One of the best layering tricks for winter is to use a printed mock neck tank under the suit jacket. The tank top can be matched with a flowing skirt or fitted pedal pushers to effortlessly go from day to night.
Most cropped tops except the bralettes can sit by the waistline of the high-waisted pants. The good news is there is a wide range of high-waisted trousers, leather pants and the classic white wide-leg bottoms. A cropped top that covers the shoulders can be used with the high-waisted trousers to be in style at work without being inappropriate.
Do you know that most items in your closet can become crop tops? A white work shirt when knotted at the hem can be good for summer. Leave a few buttons on the favorite jacket or blouse, to show off the cropped top underneath. The best part is you can cut an old Fruit of the Loom t-shirt to make your own crop top. You are totally in control of the crop top to make them suitable for work or play.
You can disguise the crop top in an easy way through a long-sleeved version of a cropped jacket or blazer. Your mid-section may show slightly but you will be comfortable with the shoulders and arms covered.
If you want to be daring while keeping a modest appearance, you can use a short cropped top with an oversize blouse or blazer. If you want to show some skin, make sure that the midriff area is toned and good to go this summer.
