As toned midriffs emerge from behind baggy knits, it’s clear that Summer 2017 is on the horizon. Whether your plans bring you to the dance floor, the festival grounds or the beach, it’s officially time to dress down. Keeping the season’s theme of lightweight and flirty pieces in mind, the crop top has returned as a sartorial staple for the warmer months. If you’re wondering how to wear it, look no further than these runway inspired looks for the season ahead.
Safari Chic like Blumarine
If you’re feeling the adventurous vibes of the balmy months, try drawing your cues from the Blumarine runway. Slip into a khaki green off-the-shoulder cropped blouse, and pair your top with a matching skirt. The look of a thigh-high slit, ruched accents and a tie belt can instantly complete the ensemble.
Sporty like Tory Burch
With athleisure vibes reigning supreme, the Tory Burch catwalk just might help you perfect your look of the day. Try slipping into a short-sleeved orange mesh top and a coordinating midi skirt. The combination of bright tangerine tones and athletic T-shirt sleeves makes for a casual chic crop top, as opposed to a sexy look.
Bohemian Babe like Isabel Marant
For the boho babe who wants to capture her inner wandering spirit, take your inspiration from Isabel Marant. The abs-baring crop top has long since been viewed as seductive, but it can be surprisingly effortless and even feminine. Think of vivid prints, a high neckline and slight ruffles for a finishing touch. Meanwhile, high-waisted grey linen trousers, disc earrings and strappy flat sandals help you channel summertime vibes.
