How to Wear a Crop Top: Part 1

Crop Top Target POlka Dot Pants

If you’ve been hesitant to try out the popular crop top trend this season, fear no more. They are surprisingly easy to wear! This post is part one of a series of three, all in which I am sporting the same black American Apparel crop top. The first look is all about the high waisted pant, the easiest way, I think, to break into this trend.

With a crop top, I focus on keeping the waist of whatever bottoms I have on high; the goal is to show just a sliver of skin. For snug tops, I like pants with some volume, like these Target palazzo pants. I kept the jewelry minimal in this look, as I already had a lot going on with the pants. Pretty simple, pretty easy! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s paring, the crop top plus the mid-calf skirt.

*Side sale note about what I’m wearing: I recently found the pants on clearance at Target. My motto with Target is to shop often, buy only occasionally. Also, Lord & Taylor (earrings) always offers coupons, so be on the lookout! Sign up for emails, etc.
