crop top

The 90s are experiencing something of a resurgence, with styles such as the underwear as outerwear trend once again entering the world of fashion. Inscribe Magazine reveals that another 90s trend making a comeback right now is the crop top. LUXE Models reveals how to wear crop tops with style, so you can make this sexy, risqué fashion work for you!

Try a high waist

A crop top’s unique hemline really allows you to think about your waist. Try teaming a classic crop with high-waisted trousers or skirt to craft a sexy, subtle silhouette without showing too much skin. You might want to throw in a thin belt to really top off this sophisticated, yet cool style!

Tone it down

If you don’t want to fully embrace the risqué nature of a crop top, try toning it down instead. Here you might want to opt for a faux crop, or a crop with a slightly longer length or thicker material. These only show your skin when you lift your arms making your look more modest. You could even wear a crop which is short in front but longer in the back, to cultivate a conservative, yet fashion forward look.

Make it work appropriate


How do you make a crop top work appropriate? Tone it down further and embrace the boldness of a crop top without actually showing any skin. You could, for instance, layer a crop with a boyfriend shirt or an Oxford (as above) to appear professional, yet fun. If you want to push those boundaries just a little bit further, you could always wear a sheer shirt over a crop, creating an outfit that’s fashion forward yet appropriate for the office.

Play around

Crop tops come in all shapes, fits, styles and sizes so you need to find the right kind for you. Think about embracing crops with looser fits to cultivate a more casual feel, teaming it with baggy yet stylish jeans and killer converse to complete the look. Alternatively, you could always don a crop and a skirt with matching patterns; by adding cute heels and light jewellery you can create a really ladylike outfit!

Go all out

Sexy, risqué and fun, crop tops were practically made for a night on the town. There are a thousand ways you can glam up a crop in order to make yourself dance floor ready. Maybe throw in a tailored blazer, jeans, killer heels and statement jewellery to make a crop work during the evenings. If you really want to go all out, try pairing a more stylish crop with a floor-length, deep jewel-tone skirt, ensuring you embrace the kind of style that will make you the belle of the ball!
