You know you want to. So what’s stopping you?
Kind of like my coping mechanisms for the new season’s boho redux.
But “going for the crop” can mean many things in fashion, and it needn’t necessarily involve some St Tropez and a new daily sit-ups routine.
Here’s four reasons (and ways) to embrace the crop:
1. IT’S FLATTERING.
When paired with high-waisted pants, a crop creates the illusion of longer legs and can make you look taller.
2. EVERYONE CAN WEAR IT.
Before you go throwing things at your screen, hear me out.
‘Crop’ is a very broad term. You could go for a teeny tiny bra-like crop, a longer crop, a boxy-shaped crop… it really comes down to two things – whether you’re willing to bare it all or just a little, and what you feel most confident in.
3. YOU CAN WEAR IT (ALMOST) ALL YEAR ROUND.
Spring? Yes. Summer? Of course.
And for my friends currently embracing fall – consider layering a blazer over the top. I love a tiny bit of skin sneaking out of a relaxed suit.
4. YOU CAN WEAR IT DIFFERENT WAYS.
If the word ‘crop’ (or the number of times I’ve said it in this post) is starting to make you nauseous, you could always layer a collared shirt underneath to embrace the trend without baring anything at all. It’s like having your cake and eating it too (literally).
