One of my favorite style bloggers is Kendi. Do you read her blog? Her style is a little more ladylike and dressed up for my current lifestyle, but I still love how her everyday outfits are simplistic and tangible. If I worked in an office and needed a work wardrobe, I would wear pretty much everything she pieces together.
Last summer, Kendi began wearing crop tops and I was intrigued. Could I wear them? Should I wear them? One fashion rule I learned from watching countless episodes of What Not To Wear (RIP) is choose one or two areas to show skin. Shorter hem lengths shouldn't be pared with a low neckline and vice versa. The longer the sleeve the shorter the hemlines or neckline etc. I can do crop tops when paired with the right pieces.
Crop tops work well with overalls or high-waisted pants and skirts. The result is edgy, but not risqué. I am only slightly edgy, but definitely not risqué! Haha. Tie on a flannel and call me Angela.
So, what about you? How do you feel about crop tops?
Something about this resurgence of 90s fashion speaks to me. I have a lot of nostalgia for this decade: Aunt Becky was the prettiest, The Cranberries had the best music and My So-Called Life and Clarissa Explains it All the ultimate television shows. My oldest brother was a teenager in the early-mid nineties and much of my taste comes from his influence.
What decade do you identify with the most?
