This blog was inspired by a few conversations that I had with several friends regarding the use of crop tops. Crop tops have made a fashion comeback over the last few years. Some people believe that crop tops should never be worn beyond a certain age; while others believe that age should not dictate what one should or should not wear. One friend shared with me that she does not wear crop tops because she believes that it is not appropriate for her age. She believed that it is more fitting for the younger crowd in their early twenties and younger. Another friend expressed that she will wear any outfit as long as she looks and feels good wearing it. There are many ways of wearing a crop top, and as in all cases with fashion it is based on preference. The key is to find a piece that is most comfortable for you. If you are a little shy about exposing too much skin, or are just generally more conservative in how you dress you have the option to wear the crop top in the same manner as seen in this shoot. I am wearing a crop top with a high waist skirt (or could be high waist pants as well). This style allows much of the stomach to be covered to maintain the more reserved and classy look, yet at the time adding elements of sexy to the overall look. I am usually not the type to show off too much stomach, but I love crop tops. I enjoy the fact that you are not able to see the shirt bulging out of your skirt, especially when wearing fitted skirts or pants. I also like the option of being able to show a little belly when I want to and create a slightly sexier look for an evening out. "Freedom is realizing you have a choice" (T.F. Hodge). The great thing about fashion, and in this particular case crop tops is the amount of options and flexibility a person can have with the same one outfit. As I always say, learn what works well for you and adjust your style accordingly.
