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 In The Forums

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

Call 911 now. They will help you. Just say you have been abused by your family member and they will take it from there. If you want, add me and we can talk

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.

Hey, Just wanted some advice to help me on what to do on this. Ever since I was 3 I've been both Verbally, Mentally, And Physically abused. To me, this is normal since it's been happening for so long. But I just can't take this thing anymore. When I get home I always get yelled at for no reason. I have been on Anti-Depressants for the past 1-2 years. Been going to counseling for 6-7 years for family. Nothing has changed yet. I just need help on how to handle this. Thanks.
