Crop What?…

Yes. Crop your shirt.

Okay don’t freak out and run away. Let’s talk about it. Summer is in full swing and if you’re a Canadian girl like myself you know it’s time to take advantage. Well, one summer trend that I am fully supporting is the crop top.

When you hear the word ‘crop top’, what do you think of? Full midriff? Super skinny super-models? Muffin tops? I get it. I’ve been there and I’ve learned. There are PLENTY of ways to sport a crop top in a chic, FLATTERING way. Lemme break it down for ya:

The Super Babes Guide to Crop Tops:

**NOTE: Show about an inch of upper abdomen, cover the belly button. Lets keep it classy**

1) With a pencil skirt {OR} Maxi. This is probably the staple to my crop top guide. Creates such a long lean line and if you’re worried about any lumps/bumps showing with the pencil skirt pick a maxi skirt. I’ve been loving the tulip hem lately which is honestly so flattering for the legs.

b) Long sleeve crop and skirt {OBSESSED}

2) As a matching set {or atleast same colour}. I’m LOVING this look. It’s a simple idea with a bold and edgy statement. {my fav sets are displayed at the bottom of this post}

3) Underneath a blazer/open blouse with pants or shorts – Trick to avoid the dreaded mom bum. I’m not a huge fan of the shorts and crop top look unless it is paired with a blazer/blouse.

4) Longer crop with boyfriend jeans for a relaxed look.

BTW: The talula crop in the middle of the collage is a MUST. It is SO flattering on many different body shapes. I suggest you take a trip over to Aritzia and try it on :)
