Styled | Crop Tops + Overalls

Crop Tops + Overalls

One of my favorite style bloggers is Kendi. Do you read her blog? Her style is a little more ladylike and dressed up for my current lifestyle, but I still love how her everyday outfits are simplistic and tangible. If I worked in an office and needed a work wardrobe, I would wear pretty much everything she pieces together.

Last summer, Kendi began wearing crop tops and I was intrigued. Could I wear them? Should I wear them? One fashion rule I learned from watching countless episodes of What Not To Wear (RIP) is choose one or two areas to show skin. Shorter hem lengths shouldn’t be pared with a low neckline and vice versa. The longer the sleeve the shorter the hemlines or neckline etc. I can do crop tops when paired with the right pieces.

Crop tops work well with overalls or high-waisted pants and skirts. The result is edgy, but not risqué. I am only slightly edgy, but definitely not risqué! Haha. Tie on a flannel and call me Angela.

So, what about you? How do you feel about crop tops?

Something about this resurgence of 90s fashion speaks to me. I have a lot of nostalgia for this decade: Aunt Becky was the prettiest, The Cranberries had the best music and My So-Called Life and Clarissa Explains it All the ultimate television shows. My oldest brother was a teenager in the early-mid nineties and much of my taste comes from his influence.

What decade do you identify with the most?

  1. Very cute! I think overalls are a perfect way to do a crop top. It gives just a little peek and looks fresh for those cooler summer days. I don’t know that I’ll ever try it, but I admire your risk-taking!

  2. oh man, i miss WNTW so badly – that show was on point.
    and i think you’ve styled this crop-top perfectly! it shows just the right amount of skin, while still being fashionable, modest, classy, and mysterious!
    great pictures by the way
    and i also go to kendi’s blog here and there, then i get sad i can’t afford 99% of her wardrobe ahaha

    1. Right?! It was the best show. I loved their relationship. 😉

      Yeah, it’s a little more high-end now but I still find ways to come away inspired…just within my own budget!

  3. I don’t think I could ever wear a crop top because I’m always so self-conscious when it comes to showing some skin – not in a body insecurity way, but just my own personal feeling of being uncomfortable. But it looks so cute on you and the way you paired it with the overalls!

  4. I used to love watching What Not To Wear before I even really knew what fashion was! I love showing skin, just not my midriff. I’m extremely insecure about my body, but I love showing off my legs when I get a chance. I say more power to anybody who’s confident enough to wear crop tops especially you!

  5. RIP What Not To Wear. I totally hear Clinton and Stacy in the back of my mind when shopping. But I think they’d totally approve of this look. The crop top and the overalls together marry well together- covering those areas of skin they’d recommend not be shown, but really give a fun edge to the look. And wow, throwback, as I continued to read, this totally embodies a Clarissa Explains It All look!

  6. Love this look on you! I adore crop tops, but just can’t seem to bring myself to purchase one. I always go to the mall and try them on, but that’s about as far as they make it haha. I love that style though, and you’re lucky you can pull it off so well! 🙂

    1. I think the key is finding the right bottoms to wear with them. I bought this top last summer but it took awhile for me to find the right way to wear it without going pop star.
