Top Of The Crops.


The Spice Girls did it. Britney did it. We're doing it. I'm talking about the fashion statement that is being seen everywhere. The Crop-Top.



Spice up your life with a crop top.
Honestly, the style has had to grow on me. I first thought it looked...well, stupid. My first thought was; "We're in Scotland. Aren't those girls cold? Let me get them a jumper." 
I soon learned that they can look faaabulous. You can put them together with different jewellery pieces, shorts, skirts and jeans to create a look to suit you. My look has been described as "retro/girly/boho", whatever that means. I like pretty things, I like the 70s and 60s, I love fashion and I love crop tops.

Despite my body confidence issues in the past, I have found myself appreciating that I have a little waist and should show it off. With this in mind, I have accumulated a selection of crop tops.



The thing about these little tops is that
1: They are (usually) cheap.
2: Anyone can wear them.
3: It is about Girl Power!

From Glamourmagazine.co.uk


I tend to wear mine with high waisted skirts. High waisted things are the way forward if you want to rock the crop but don't feel comfortable with showing your whole torso. Let's be honest, the photos I took from Glamour Magazine make it look like we need to have abs of steel and a personal trainer to wear them but I know that I love biscuits and chocolate. The thing about showing just a tiny bit of flesh gives the illusion of a little waist and is oh so sexy. It's just a little taster. (Ooh you teaser!)



It goes back to the saying I keep hearing my friends tell me; "It's all about the confidence." I had a big confidence issue when I was younger and it still can affect me today but put your best heels on and strut your stuff, tell yourself that you are the muthafucking boss and you are. It is about girl power too, for years men have been walking about with their tops off (not always a pretty sight), and now we can walk about without caring to bare with a crop top.

You can add a denim jacket in the day and a floaty, flirty kimono at night, or a blazer to smarten it up. So versatile.

From my wardrobe comes a couple of styles.

Top: Miss Selfridge
Blazer: New Look
Shorts: Primark
Shoes: Primark
Necklance: H&M


Top: H&M
Skirt: River Island
Shoes: New Look

My budget steal! Top: Primark £2
Skirt: Primark: £3


What are your thoughts on crop tops? How do you like to wear your's?

  1. I don't usually wear crop-tops. I have I think one in my closet with a palm tree from H&M. I'm sure I am gonna wear it on my holidays with shorts or just to my bikini :)

  3. I don't own many crop tops but I love the selection that you have here. I prefer to wear mine with a high waisted skirt because I'm not that adventurous. I love the outfits that you put together at the end of this post. Your fashion sense is on point!

  6. "tell yourself that you are the muthafucking boss and you are."
    Love that line. Too many girls are afraid of being confident because they don't want to come off as bitchy. But honestly, confidence is awesome and shouldn't be confused with being vain. Its great to see people becoming more confident!

    1. Totally! I use to be so negative about myself because I didn't want to sound vain but there's nothing wrong with loving yourself. It's better to love than to hate ✌️

  7. Crop tops! I've gained a lot of weight recently and so I can't really wear them too cropped and I've never tried one on...butttttt as I'm going on vacation I found a suitable one from Forever 21 and hopefully I can pull it off!

    Keep in touch!

  8. a million times yes to this! i especially love them with high waist things, mainly because i dont have *the* flattest stomach and that helps hide the problem areas haha. I especially love them with full midi skirts- it's so playful but demure at the same time!

    I think its good that there's more ways to style them out there than back to the ol' spice girl days, gives more chance to experiment with what works :D
