Crop Tops: Be Cool In This Hot Summer Trend. Catch My Drift?


Posted on June 14, 2013 by

Midriff, that is. Uncovering those arms and legs might not be enough to beat the heat this summer, so why not opt for a little more exposure? Sunblock is highly recommended, of course! One of this season’s hottest trends is the crop top – a staple in anyone’s wardrobe if you’re looking for a fun, simple look that’s equal parts versatile and unique.

Crop tops are completely interchangeable with any look, and since you’re only revealing a few inches of that toned waistline you’ve been working on, you don’t have to worry about showing too much.

Pair a crop top with high-waisted shorts, combat boots and a fun hat for a funky-edgy look. For the girly look, go for a white crop top with a floral skirt, chunky necklace and metallic sandals.  These not-too-short, not-too-long tops can still have a cameo moment on a cool summer night – just layer with a light-weight cardigan or a flannel, and you’re out the door!

Crop Tops


Look One: Black Fedora $23; Marine Crop Top $15; High Waisted Shorts $45; Combat Boots $99

Look Two: White Bralette $15; Floral Skirt $31; Pearl Bracelet $47; Gold Sandals $33

Look Three: Red Flannel $32; Black Bustier $62; Black High Waisted Shorts $67; Converse $65

His intricate pieces are a celeb favorite and starting February 2014, blushing brides of any budget can tie the knot in a Zac Posen wedding gown.

Zac Posen is launching Truly Zac Posen for David’s Bridal featuring six styles ranging from $850 to $1,1350. Brides-to-be can say “I Do” to Truly Zac Posen without getting cold feet about an overpriced purchase.

From one-of-a-kind bridal gowns designed exclusively for celebrities, to an entire collection made available to the everyday stylish bride, Posen knows what women want on this special day. Get ready to hit the stores or the web to get your hands on your future wedding gown because this collection has “sold out” written all over it!
