Crop Tops — Bomb or Bust?

May 20, 2014

As crop tops keep creeping into the virtual shopping carts of all my usual online shopping haunts — Gilt, Topshop, PiperlimeI’ve begun to wonder… Are crop tops a good idea or something stupid I will look back in pictures and immediately regret? Will baring my — gasp! — belly look chic and modern or will it just look contrived and stupid? Deep thoughts by Anna.

I am jetting off to a bachelorette party this weekend in West Palm Beach — yes aren’t I special today — and I’m thinking that a crop top has to come with me. And therefore I’m going to answer my own question — crop tops are the bomb. I think?

I still adore this Topshop one I featured last week in the tribal chic collection. But as far as crop tops are concerned, that particular one is among the most cropped of the teeny top trend and, because I have such a long torso, it would most likely look like a awkwardly long bra on me. No go.

I’ve pulled together a few options that I think could work for my fancy trip. What do you think?


Crop Tops Under $100


Navy / Black & White Stripe / Hot Pink / Pink & Aqua Print / Blue & White Print / Black & White Aztec Print / Denim & White Stripe / Gray


All of these great pieces are well under $100 too. Crop tops are not an investment piece peeps.

I have the perfect nude-ish pink pleated skirt for the navy top above to go with… I think crop tops are one of those things that you need to try on to decide if you want to purchase or not. I’m going to give it a go and let you my thoughts. If nothing else at least it will give us a good laugh.

In just four short days I’ll be sipping champs on the beach with a bunch of babes. This week better go by fast.
