1 Item 3 Ways - The Crop Top

1 Item 3 Ways - The Crop Top

Crop tops have only come on to my fashion radar as my body confidence has grown - really since I started Dressing Up. But you know what? I kinda love them! I know when you think 'Crop Top' it can bring up visions of belly bearing teens in ripped denim shorts, but I'm choosing to style mine in a slightly more sophisticated way. 

The Top: Tie Waist Blouse by Eloquii. $16.97 USD (approx $23.45 NZD)

I love this top. The versatility of the button neckline and the tie waist paired with the flutter sleeve is such a winning combo. Here I have styled it with a printed maxi by Coop, I love how the black waistband meets the top and makes it look like a dress - comfy and cute! I am wearing a US 14 (about a NZ 16).

Skirt by COOP (only size small left - I am wearing a Large), sandals by Novo Shoes, Earrings from H&M, clutch was a Trademe purchase.

A totally different look - add a high waisted pant to define your waist (high waisted is a bit of a theme today!)

Earrings and Pants from H&M, shoes from Target Australia.

Here I have layered it over a dress I already owned to add a new dimension to the outfit - again drawing attention to my waist (because I like it!)
