Let’s talk about crop tops, shall we? It’s easy to pass those things off as strictly for 17 year-olds or Coachella (or 17-year-olds at Coachella), but believe it or not, there’s a more sophisticated identity for this style. No need to bare your belly. Pick one that’s a little boxier and more structured and layer it over a silky tank. Beyond that, the sky’s the limit. You can pair a graphic print with a complementing solid, play with color blocking, or keep it minimal and monochromatic. It’s actually easier than you might think AND makes you look like a styling pro. Plus it’s a great new way to mix and match your tops and create new looks you never thought of before. Here are a few combos to get the ideas flowing. Try it!

    It’s funny that crop tops are the thing because I rocked them in my HS dats with white button downs underneath. Anyway, these are great picks.
