Growing up during the Britney Spears era meant lots of crop tops for me. Since living in Phoenix basically means trying to wear as few clothes as possible for nine months out of the year, I was all about it. I have to say I don’t really miss the “midriff baring top and super low rise jeans” look but I still love a good crop top, only now I prefer to pair them with high-waisted skirts that allow just a sliver of skin to be seen.
This graphic black and white stripe crop top was just begging to be paired with a full black skirt. I wore this on a night out with lots of sparkly accessories and bright lips and nails. What a perfect excuse to pull out my beaded clutch and satin shoes! I love how versatile this trend is and how easy it is to dress it up or down. And the price of this striped top can’t be beat!
Black and white is such a classic pairing and I love how easy it would be to pair this top with a red skirt for a bolder look or with bright shoes for a fun twist. This crop top has a zipper that runs down the back for a slightly edgier feel and I love how the striped fabric looks with a statement necklace.
