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!
