Wear A Cropped Top Without Resembling Britney Circa Baby One More Time

I am a Chloe girl. I would be decked out head-to-toe in Chloe every day if I could. Since, however, that is not a remote possibility, instead I shop the high street for Chloe-inspired looks. Thankfully, one of the spring trends showcased on Chloe’s runway has begun trickling into the mainstream: crop tops.

While Britney may have blackened its name by prancing around in a questionable school girl’s uniform during her glory days, this time around the spring trend is being interpreted in a totally different way. This spring, the crop top has gone sweet – and doesn’t involve flaunting your midriff.

This Loeffler Randall Crop Cami in Poppy Print ($195) can be paired with high-waisted, wide-leg linen pants or jeans. It will end where the pants begin and give the illusion of a

perfectly tiny waist without showing any extra skin.


Try wearing this Express Cropped Pocket Tee ($10, was $24.50) with white jeans for a sharp black and white look that remains on the casual side.


Layer this Nanette Lepore Cream Eyelet ‘Daddy-O’ Cropped Blouse ($134, was $275) with a fitted tee and pair with a brightly colored circle skirt. It’s a great alternative to slipping on yet another standard summer dress.

If you’re still wary of this spring trend, a more conservative way to cropped is by wearing a button-down shirt like J. Crew’s Short-Sleeve Stretch Broadcloth Shirt ($59.50). Undo the bottom buttons and tie both tails together into a loose knot.
