SNATCHED! SALE at MANGO

 

Didn’t think I’d buy anything stripey but I wanted a cropped top and mono white or a black one seemed boring since I already have so many items in just said colors, actually not colors… Whatever. Great cut and fine fabric that feels soft to skin. Ridiculous price.

Go on MANGO SALE is up to 50%

CROPPED TOPS ARE TOP, BUT!

Well, It’s about time I comment on the cropped top trend. You’ve seen it on runaways and in editorials and not that recently on many of the usual fashion pack.

I like the trend depending on how cropped top is, whereabout it’s been worn and how it is incorporated into assembly.

DO’s
(as seen above)

Simple: Go with not too cropped top and belly covered style wether it’s a skirt or a pants. Adding a jacket would definitely refined the look and you can really wear everywhere without being too flashy or inappropriate but it’s still not office-okay even with a jacket. As for pants try with suit like pants not too tight – it’s not a Flashdance, no tight jeans with cropped tops and heels.

DON’Ts
(see below) 

Basically, I have a problem – style wise, of course – with those bra-like items (obviously mistaken for a cropped top) which are worn with nice light spring suits with casually unbuttoned jackets flashing what ya momma gave you. I don’t care if your body is sculpt in the now pilates place and looks fab, save it for a beach or a privacy of your own room .. and no don’t care – it was a fashion week, either.

Or another kind like those bikini triangles, seen in Melbourne during fashion week. I know there is beach in the near but you don’t go there in a leather skirt with jacket and wearing heels.

Also really cropped tops worn with pants or skirts under your midriff with very formal attire for formal occasions – looks a bit dunno ridiculous – like look at my body, I just had a baby but wow! and we are talking about grown up women not 17 years old models.

As for a beach, islands – go free. Wear a bathing suit with pants or skirt any kind, shawls… even a ribbon wide enough just to cover your nipples will do for any occasion (almost), just remember to switch when you get back to town to work.
