Crop It Up

This spring has put many throwback trends back on the map.  These include neon color-blocking, flared jeans, harem pants and my personal favorite, cropped tops.   Over the past few months, I have purchased a number of cropped shirts ranging from silky tanks to featherweight spring sweaters.  And don't worry if your not quite ready to show off your 6 pack yet.  Since most of us don't get excited about baring our midriff outside of the beach, designers and brands have varied the crop lengths to appease us all.  What's even better is the cropped look pairs well with everything.  For spring you can layer a light leather jacket or sweater over a cropped tank with skinny or light washed flared jeans.  For summer you can lose the layers and wear a cropped tee with high-waisted chiffon skirts (featured here) or denim cut-offs.  No matter what the season, throw on a few bangles and a fedora to finish the look and voila, you are hitting the streets in style .  Below are my favorite cropped tops from this season.  Enjoy!

  1. I love #3...the length shows juuust enough skin without going overboard- although I think this trend is a great motivation to get to the gym overall!!
