I'm always hesitant about purchasing crop tops because I honestly can't imagine feeling comfortable with my stomach showing and not crossing over to trashy town. After SINGER22 got hit with a ton of crop tops, I figured I'd better make an effort to understand what to do with these shrunken things. After playing around I came to the conclusion that they only work with high waisted. High waisted skirts, shorts, jeans, pants, etc. Here are a few looks I put together with my favorite crop tops. If you are very uncomfortable with even a little bit of your stomach showing, a tank top can always be worn underneath. I think the contrast of a long necklace with these mini tops really balances it out nicely. In the third outfit I tested out a shorter necklace as well. The rebel yell t-shirts are my favorite because they come in all those great neon colors. If you do choose to buy a cropped top with writing on it or a pattern/design, get a little crazy! Mix and match. It was really fun to pair the hot pink with turquoise with the grey. Even while putting it on, I knew it wouldn't match, but I just knew it would work – confidence is key! If you opt for a solid color like this purple Free People piece, spice it up with some necklaces and some jewelry. The best part about a simple top is the accessorizing it needs. If you find yourself choosing the sweater-ish crop top, keep it classy with a simple pair of high waisted bell bottoms or shorts and a cute tote to go along with it.
