There really isn’t any big secret to wearing a crop top after having kids. All it takes is a little confidence and the right balance. last year I tried a crop top with a high waisted skirt and a white blazer (click here to see the entire post). The skirt and crop top were sexy and the blazer gave it a conservative touch – the perfect balance. This isn’t my day at the park outfit but it’s definitely a date night outfit. Below are some tips on how to rock the trend effortlessly.
If you feel sexy you will look sexy. It’s that simple. The key is to own it! I have a belly and lots and lots of stretch marks after having babies, but life is too short to deny myself the clothes I love and want to wear. Below is the perfect example of a crop top with class!
By balance I mean that if you plan on rocking a crop top make sure your bottoms are on point and choose a crop top that falls at your natural waist. High waisted bottoms are prefered because they fall at the smallest part of your waist and in return expose a tiny bit of that area. See Kim Kardashian, the crop top poster girl below.
If in doubt or out with the kids…layer! Layering is fun and has no limitations. Try a lose crop top over a white button down, a long lean tank or even over a dress.
Always Stay Simple
Avoid prints and loud colors and/or excessive accessorizing. Instead go neutral with beige, white, black or gray and keep accessories minimal. The idea is to look effortless and Kim Kardashian again is a perfect example of how to keep it simple.
One of the easiet ways to wear a crop top is by wearing a head to toe color – black crop top and black pencil skirt – then try a white blazer over the crop top. It will draw the eye to the tiniest part of your waist. Try it. You’ll thank me later!
I set up an entire pinterest board for crop tops and while it provides some major inspiration I am unfortunately going to have to pass on the trend because it’s only been 3 months since I had Joseph and I’m just not ready. I did however wear a crop top underneath a blazer last year before I was pregnant (you can see it here). Below are some of my favorite looks.
The weather is starting to feel what most people would consider a normal summer day but for Floridians its still spring becuase it’s still not inhumanely hot. Most days it’s in the low 80s and a cold front pops up maybe twice a month bringing the weather down to normal spring temps but it doesn’t really matter down here. Once March rolls aorund the daisy dukes come out in full force and the wife beaters are sold by the dozen (I’m not kidding about the wife beaters – I tried to buy my teenager a pack for his MMA class and there was only 2 packs left in white at Target lol). Anyway it doesn’t leave much room for layering but it does give for some fun styling. You can pair a trench with denim shorts, pack a cardigan to the beach or wear your bikini under a linen blazer for a night on the beach. Its a laid back style that you can’t really wear all year round anywhere else.
