cream of the crop


In my (style) book, there is a crop top, above, and a cropped top, below. I am a fan of the latter, the kind that falls at the waistline and shows no skin. Historically, for me, the right cropped top has been hard to find (either too short, too tight, too wide, etc.), but now suddenly there is a plethora of perfect-fitting options. I'm chalking up this phenomenon to the resurgence of high-waisted jeans, pants and skirts, which go inextricably with cropped tops. Topping my list are these by Club Monaco, Tibi, Alice & Olivia, English Factory, Elle Sasson, Vika Gazinskaya, and Zara, which I have, or this one, as recommended by my sis.

Love all of them but especialy the lace cropped top from Zara. How do you wear yours? What do you wear underneath?

I wear a nude, opaque tankini-like bra underneath and have been wearing it with high-waisted wide leg trousers and skirts. It's very cute!

Absolutely love your lace Zara one! What are you feeling about the size? Did you size up to get a little more length? Thanks so much for sharing these gems...xo

I bought a size medium, which is my normal size, and the length works with high-waisted pants, shorts, etc.
