Crazy for Crop Tops

Jul 01, 2013

You can't talk about summer style without mentioning crop tops! They may seem daunting to wear if you've never gone there before but trust us when we say they can be totally awesome if you wear them with confidence and know how to style them. Don't even think about the old-fashioned way people wore them back in the 1980s - the modern way to wear a crop top is so much cooler. Check out our edit of the best crop tops and style tips on how to work it! 

How To Wear a Crop Top 

1. Wear with high-waisted jeans

Don't worry, a crop top doesn't mean you have to show a lot of skin or midriff! Just a tiny peek is the cool way to work a crop top and isn't revealing. You're not supposed to see your belly button or your belly for that matter! All that you need for it to be a crop top is just a shorter length top. Don't wear a crop top with low-waisted jeans or bottoms though - go high waisted and don't go too tight.

2. Go Baggy 

No one says a crop top has to be fitted or at all tight. We love a boxy or baggy crop top - it's easy to wear and it means you don't have to tuck in your shirt or deal with any excess fabric around your midriff. It looks great if you pair with slouchy, loose-fit pants or boyfriend style baggy jeans for a totally comfy cool crop top look.

3. Layer, Layer

Layer underneath a strappy pinafore dress or a pair of denim overalls or shortalls. That way you're even more covered up and just showing a tiny bit of side - no big deal! And it puts a creative spin on your outfit. 

4. Team With High-Waisted Skirts

This is a super cute look - choose the right combo and it can almost look like a dress. Look for a crop top that ends right below the top of your skirt or shorts waistband - it will look like it's tucked in but you don't have to deal with the shirt riding up during the day or shifting at all. Easy instant style

last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
