Printed: Neon Crops

Crop tops and printed bustier styles are always a bit tricky for me since I am tall, but short waisted. However, I love them and tend to find a different approach to making styles like this work for me.

I have constantly worn tops like these in the spring/summer months even when I was a teenager. But, with time our bodies and style selections evolve. You learn things about your body and develop a few style tricks of your own.

I was smitten with this graphic print, as it reminded me of being at the carnival and having barbeques with friends and family in the summertime. Of course, the small bits of bright colours and neon hues also struck me—yes, the happy dance commenced within a glance!

How to wear crop tops summer style
So, I paired this top with an old silk maxi skirt that I cut up and sewed a tier underneath. It was when I had an affinity for raw edge pieces, and black on black on black ensembles were pretty much most of my wardrobe options.

For me, this style was obviously modified, as I usually wear crop tops layered with other pieces. But, I played around with different styles for this piece. I would also wear this crop top with my skinny jeans and heels or resort-like trousers and sandals!

    I don't wear crop tops due to my age but I like the way you have styled this one!

    I might reconsider the idea of wearing them!

    I love this top--the crop and the pattern. I don't wear crop tops much mainly because I don't have enough high waisted skirts and bottoms to go with them.

    Ein wirklich schönes Top. Ich kann leider nicht Bauchfrei gehen, aber dir mit deiner tollen Figur siehst klasse darin aus. Die Kette ist auch ein hübscher Hingucker. Grüße Cla

  33. If there is anyone who could find a way to wear a crop top in a classy, elegant way, it's you. I'm still not quite on board with the crop top trend myself - I just haven't found the right one - but the more I see others wear crop tops well, the more I want to join in on the fun. Especially for summer!

  38. Cla, ich kann verstehe, und ich in der Regel nicht Bauchfrei tragen nicht. :-) Ich denke, der Maxi-Rock hilft!
