Cream of the Crop

Latest trends

Who doesn’t love a  chic crop top? It is comfy, sexy and youthful, all at the same time. What is not to love?

And contrary to popular belief, this piece can absolutely look classy! Remove images of crop tops with fringes or tacky crop tops worn with uber short shorts from your mind, this season’s crop tops are more on the elegant side. Rather than paired with denim cutoffs, crop tops are cropping up in increasingly sophisticated and fashion forward sartorial pairings. Try crop tops with high waisted tuxedo pants or with full or tea-length skirts.

I opted to style my black crop top with a more modern romantic feel. Partially inspired by Audrey Hepburn, this ensemble stays true to my brand of chic while simultaneously adding edgy and trendy details that make it more current.

The vintage-inspired sunnies, black tights, and of course, the oversized pearl necklace are the details that give this look a more Audrey Hepburn effect.
