3 ways to wear a crop top

Crop top trend has been a rage for a while now, it is a versatile piece of clothing which can be styled in many ways. Not just in Western wear, crop top outfits are now a major trend in Eastern wear as well. With a slight peek of midriff, this style turns a simple look into a glamorous one.

This trend can be dated back to 40s’ when it was worn as a collared shirt with skirts. Since then the world has seen many evolving styles of this ensemble. Some of the major breakthrough crop top styles were seen in the 80s’ in movie Flashdance and when Madonna featured in her album song Lucky star wearing a black mesh crop top. In the late 90s’ Britney spears made it an absolute craze with her front knot crop shirt in her song Hit me baby one more time! Today, crop tops are available in various styles loose, fitted, sporty, classic and many more. You can wear them with skirts, pants, palazzos, track pants, dungarees and denims. To give an ethnic twist you can pair a crop top with a salwar, dhoti pants, ghagra skirts and even as a blouse with saree.

I personally love this style on others, but till date, I did not try it on myself. Maybe I was skeptical whether it will suit me or not! But then I finally decided to break the shell and do an exclusive crop top outfit post here, not just in 1 but 3 styles. Here I will show you how to style a crop top in 3 different ways!

Look 1 – I am wearing a stretchable cotton crop top which I paired with my denim culottes. This is a really chic and fashion forward look which I would wear in a heartbeat!

Look 2– This time I converted my crop top into a crop top dress. I paired my crop top with a pencil skirt and tied a broad belt at the waist, here it looks like a single piece dress. This can be your party dress!

Look 3– A crop top can be used for light summer layering. I am wearing my crop top over a white cotton shirt and paired them with denims.  An absolutely rocker chic look, isn’t it!

So this is my take on how to style one crop top in different ways. Using some creativity we can always use an outfit to create unique and different looks every time. If you have some more styles, do share with me!

Live & Love,
