Runway Report: Sporty-Dapper Cropped Tops Dominate Barbara Bui FW 2013

Deviating from the usual knit and heavy fabrics, Barbara Bui sticks to simple yet striking androgynous pieces with her fall/winter collection for 2013, which was showcased at Paris Fashion Week just last week.

Aside from the tailored tuxedo coats and jackets, what really caught our eyes were the chic and sexy cropped tops that are reminiscent of a sporty take on dapper fashion. We can easily see celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, and Rihanna rocking these cropped tops on the red carpet. Don’t you agree?

These midriff-baring tops also have that understated elegance and do not look cheap and tasteless even with all the resulting exposed skin. If you’re a bit reserved, you can wear a cropped top with a tailored blazer, a jacket, or a coat that would provide more coverage without sacrificing the chic and dapper effect of any of these pieces. Check back with us come fall season to see where to grab these tops from!
