Crop tops have turned straight into a staple
in our wardrobes, to be worn however or whenever you like. You're quite right, these types of garment are short and display part of your torso, but they can still be worn in both winter or summer. Why? It’s all about playing around with lengths.
It’d be logical to think that given they show off your midriff, crop tops are best suited for hot weather, when you want to bare some skin to cool down. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The trick is to pair them with mid-waist and high-waist items
. Crop tops go perfectly with garments high enough to cover up the gaps they leave. This way, you can wear them in hot weather or cold weather, summer or winter.
The good thing about crop tops is that they come in so many styles: long sleeve, short sleeve, sleeveless, strappy, strapless, halter neck, round neck, V-neck, sweetheart neckline, low back, fitted, loose, oversize, shirred, embroidered, elasticated, scalloped, ruffled, puff sleeve, dotted mesh, cotton, linen, ribbed, tulle, shiny, lace, basic, printed, with designs… So no matter how you imagine it, your ideal crop top is out there
