For several seasons now, the crop top has been a staple in our wardrobe and has become our best fashion ally. In addition to highlighting all morphologies, this short top can be worn with everything! We give you a few tips on how to wear it well.
What is the crop top?
As its name indicates (“to crop” means to cut in English), the crop top is a very short top that stops just above the navel. Today, the crop top is available in t-shirt, jumper or waistcoat. In short, all tops can have their crop version! After having marked the fashion of the 90’s, it is back in force and is definitely imposing itself in our wardrobe. But unlike Britney Spears who wore it with low waist jeans to show off her belly button, today’s chic is precisely to reveal nothing.
Wearing the crop top without showing your navel
Even if you’re a big fan of the pop stars of the nineties, you have to face the facts: the crop top is not what it used to be! Whereas our idols liked to wear these tops to reveal their pierced belly buttons, in 2020, we’re playing it a little wiser. Tight fitting, it can be worn with high waist trousers, under a blazer or a kimono jacket. In its loose version, you can wear it with a little midday skirt or mom jeans that never stop below the navel.
How to wear the crop top in winter?
Even when the cold weather comes, you can afford to take it out! Indeed, the crop top is very easy to hide under a shirt or a fleece cardigan. In its pullover version, we opt for a thick knit model, to be combined with high waist jeans and a pair of boots with heels. It can also be worn under dungarees or a short-sleeved dress. You can find on iroparis.com/ for instance many good examples of tops & shirts. It’s a perfect solution for those who like to make the most of their clothes, being able to wear them in winter as well as in summer!
Wearing a crop top in summer
In summer, the crop top blends perfectly with the rest of your wardrobe. With denim shorts, a mini, midi or maxi high waist skirt, it matches all your summer fashion pieces without losing any of their elegance. For those who also like to look stylish on holiday, there are now skirt/crop top or short/crop top sets that guarantee you a look that’s right in line with today’s trend for quick, no-nonsense slip-on style. And it’s obviously the fashionable piece to slip into your suitcase to complete all your outfits.
How to enhance your shapes with a crop top?
Who said you have to have Bella Hadid’s slender silhouette to wear a crop top? On the contrary, a crop top is the perfect piece to enhance your shape. For a chic look, opt for a dinner jacket with flare trousers and a blazer under which you’ll slip a crop top with thin straps or a headband. During the day, the crop top-long skirt combo will be ideal, as will the t-shirt which will be perfect with high-waisted trousers and a jacket over them when the temperatures get cold.
