How to Wear Cropped Top: 6 Looks Inspired by Bloggers

This season calls for baring a bit of skin. The beach isn’t the only place to do that though. You can show off a bit of midriff even when wearing your everyday outfit. Just inject cropped tops in your wardrobe.

Cropped tops are obviously a favorite of personal style bloggers if the number of bloggers wearing them in the past couple of months is anything to go by. If you fancy wearing this trend yourself, you should learn a thing or two from them. Here are some looks that will inspire you on how to wear cropped tops:

1. Featuring Rachel from Rachelecclestone


I can think of numerous ways to wear cropped shirts but I like Rachel’s way better. She paired it up with a high waisted skinny pants with floral print. The contrast between the grungy top and feminine pants is interesting especially when paired with those platform shoes.

2. Featuring Anastasia from Brown Platform


Try wearing your printed cropped shirt with pencil skirts! This silhouette is hugely popular these days. What’s even better is that you can mix and match prints. Take a cue from Anastasia’s outfit. She mixed a striped mini pencil skirt with her cropped top for a playful look.

3. Featuring Mylene from BlogDamy


Midriff-baring tops never fail when paired up with high-waist bottoms. So make sure you also try the cropped top plus high waist shorts combo. It’s a great look to sport especially if your top is a cute crochet one just like Mylene’s.

How can you not love cropped tops when they are worn like this? Steffy’s bustier top is so vintage cute with its lace side details and polka dot print. Channel the vintage Americana vibe by pairing your printed bustier with pleated high waist skirt and accessorizing with loafers and satchel bag. Wearing a pair of round sunnies also wouldn’t hurt.
