It’s finally here –one of the first of the summer Friday series, yeah! and what are you going to do to celebrate? Having a glass of wine? Taking a yoga class?
I did something the other day that I have never done before so I am going to celebrate the fact that I wore a crop top. Out. Of. The. House. Crop tops are nothing new for me. I’ve worn them since I was a child and went back to them just this season. I’m not sure if I broke my own rules, I probably did, but I am happy I tried the trend from runway to reality and made it work.
From Alexander Wang’s cutaway white shirting, Balenciaga’s abbreviated tees, and other navel-grazers, flashes of midriff were ubiquitous at the spring 2014 collections, intended for the beach, the boardroom, and beyond. This look is one of my favorites from Spring 2014.

I like wearing them in the warmer months with my high-waisted vintage Levi’s jeans so you barely see any skin, an inch or so at the most. I appreciate more of a peekaboo effect. I just bought this new crop top by Blaque label for Spring. I got it in plain black and plan to wear it with a pencil skirt and my jeans and to happen to throw on a jacket on top.
The only advice I can dispense right now is that while dining in your crop tops: shoulders back, navel in—and whatever happens don’t slouch. Trust me.
