There’s one trend that seems to be dividing the fashion world at the moment – the crop top. As part of the 80s revival, the top we thought had gone out with the Spice Girls is back, and slowly infiltrating the high street.
Personally I reckon if you’ve got the stomach for it (literally), then give it a go. If you’re looking to fully the 80s look then team it with acid or stone wash skinny jeans and heels for a quirky night time look, or if you want a twist on a summer day look, then try it will a floaty skirt. A crop top would also work well over a body con vest dress to add a splash of colour or texture, or with a body con skirt.
Topshop have got a great range of crop tops. The Sequin Zebra Crop Vest Top on the left would be a perfect statement top paired with jeans, and the loose fitting means you won’t need to put in too many hours at the gym. The racer back adds detail and makes it nice and airy for hot days, and animal prints and motifs have been huge this summer, as have sequins. It costs £16.
If you want to keep it traditional, then there’s the Crop Crew Tee. It’s a classic square T-Shirt shape, just slightly shorter. You can wear this with high waisted jeans or shorts if you don’t fancy bearing all. It’s available in black, as in the picture, or white, nude or light grey. It costs £10.
