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

Dear Dish-it, This is really strange for me to write to you because I have never done anything like this before but I need an outside POV from my situation and I need help. These days, I don't know what I'm doing or what tomorrow is going to bring. But before I get into how I feel, I am going to explain my situation a bit first. So let's get started. My family is a family of 6 though my oldest sibling has left the house to live else where because he's 26 years old. Anyway, I argue a lot in my family in fact there's fights everyday either with me or just between other family members. I don't remember a time that we didn't fight... Sad ain't it? But I try and not let it bother me. My mom and me have the best and worst relationship out there. At one time, we understand ourselves completely but then something happens and the arguments stop... It always ends with her angry and me frustrated, crying and angry... I have cried more in the past year and half (That is when it got worst) Then my entire lifespan so far. Plus since she had a bad childhood, she tries to make everything different from hers but she ALWAYS compares me to her. I am a different person than her and she just doesn't understand that! I always feel really bad after because she wants me to be the perfect child but I can't and I never will be. I am just me. Like today, I punched a wall because I just wanted to feel something else than sadness and worst thing is that I fake smiles and optimism at school so nobody knows. My friends don't understand even though I have told them but now I brush it off. It's not their life so they don't need to understand it. But that's my situation... Now that you have heard something about me, I need help. I'm sending myself in the abyss. I am losing control. I feel as if everything is slipping from my fingers and everything is falling apart. I don't know what's happening to me! I am losing myself and I don't know what to do! It's hard to keep up my grades, to make sure that everything is done, that I go to my activities after school. It feels so hard to do right now... I throw things and slam doors when I am super mad. I don't have anger issues but I keep in so many emotions that I explode when I can't take them anymore. My world seems to be crumbling before my eyes. My family is in debt, my parents might split and my brothers hate me. My dog, running, drawing and books are my only escape.  I don't know what to do... Sincerely LostintheAbyss
