Outfit Of The Yesterday: Black/White (Floral/Stripe)

♫: Tear You Down – RAC/Alex Ebert

Crop tops started popping up last spring and summer, and they have now moved into being a full-powered trend for the upcoming warmer months of 2014. Which, I must confess, I have actually been enjoying! It’s nice as a petite person to have a top that actually hits where it kind-of-actually-sorta-should on the torso. They are also fairly easy to wear, since there’s no extra fabric that needs stuffing, tucking, or yanking. Some crop tops are a little on the short side, but the trick is to pair them with high waisted skirts & pants so just a sliver of skin peeks out:
