Spring weather has been coming and going recently. It’s literally like a tease. One day it’s 2’C, another day it’s -7’C. Sometimes it even starts at -7’C and becomes 5’C in the afternoon. So obviously, picking out what to wear is the biggest confusion for me. When the weather is bipolar, all I want to do is be laid back and stay in bed. The stress of having to choose attire that I won’t regret is too much. Luckily, crop tops are so versatile. You can literally style it for all 4 seasons and still look weather sensible.
Crop tops should be an essential in any girl’s closet. It’s just necessary to have one in black, white, and grey. They match with everything. You can wear it with or without baring your midriff. They also come in many styles for any occasion. If you have a more formal occasion, look for a bedazzled or lace style. For everyday use like mine, I’m going with a plain cotton- blend crop style.

Styling a Crop Top
Styling a laid back outfit always starts with sweatpants. When shopping for sweat pants, look for fashionable ones that are slim by the ankles and/ or have embellishments. Mine are made of a light, textured material with silver zipper hardware on the waistband. I feel like the details are what makes these sweatpants modern and fashionable. To balance out the long pants, I pair it with a crop top to accommodate the potentially warm afternoon weather. If the weather was estimated to be hotter, I would opt for a sleeveless crop top. However, it appeared to be chilly, so a long crop top it is. Both the top and bottom were fairly plain. To balance it out, I tied a plaid flannel around my waist to bring the outfit together.
