I have been wanting to rock a cropped top for awhile now but have been super hesitant to make it happen. I love the idea of the cropped top and the trend itself but I also recognize that this trend is one that I really need to tailor to my age, body and style. (I am just not the one for baring that level of skin anymore… at least not like that anyway!!)
After some browsing around, I finally found this cropped boyfriend sweatshirt at Nordstrom Rack and had to have it! I loved the color scheme but more than anything, it was the slouchy (yet cropped) fit that appealed to me. It made me think of the 80′s, the movie Flashdance and Madonna!!
I decided to layer this look by adding a printed cami underneath (which I also distressed at the side seams). There was definitely a lot of experimenting that day. I experimented with the distressing, obviously with the look, and I was also experimenting with different filters on my iPhone camera too (as I didn’t really plan to take photos and didn’t have my DSLR with me )! I actually like how it all turned out! Layering the distressed cami underneath made the look more appropriate for my body and age yet still added some edge, spunk and personal style!
If a printed cami isn’t your thing, there are other great ways to style the cropped top without necessarily baring it all. A high rise skirt is a great compliment, or wearing the top over a dress. I also like the idea of layering the top over a tank top or maybe even a chambray or plaid button down. Lots of options to experiment and make it your own.
