I Have Discovered 4 New Ways to Wear Crop Tops

I have always liked the idea of a crop top (or a bustier?), and I’ve always felt quite cool while wearing it. But somehow when I look at myself in the mirror, I end up feeling like my 18th old cousin when she’s out clubbing. Still very cool, but maybe not as much me as I like to.

This may or may not have something to do with me hitting the 25 bar this winter. Whenever I try a little bit too much – I feel like I am begging the cool kids down the block to let me join the hang. This is the feeling I am left with, instead of just owning my style and what I want to wear. Are you feeling me?

However, I am gonna do my best to prove to myself that I am wrong.

Leather Layering

I am really crushing on this outfit and layering leather and leather. I am so happy that I finally found the perfect leather top. Yes, it really is as perfect as it looks. I prefer to style it with other leather pieces. Imagine how good it would look over a leather blazer!! Or maybe over a cashmere sweater with leather cargo pants. Like these ones from Arket.

Speaking of (cashmere) layering

Yes, I would say that is the key to survive the Scandinavian winter. I think you cannot go wrong with layering up a cashmere crop top with another cashmere top. Also, it’s perfect for this in-between season when it’s too warm to go fully double cashmere layers but still a bit too cold not to at least try it.

Layering is a though cookie to bite though. One layer too many and you end up feeling (and looking) like a sausage.

Is this the best thing you have ever heard of??

I think so.

I talked with one of my friends the other day and he said “I love Prada AW16 when they wore corsets over suits, that feels so now!!!”. And yes, I could not agree more. I have this unpopular opinion that suits sometimes can be kind of boring and not as versatile as I would wish. Finally, I have found a way to make my suits a bit more exciting.

Hi pink, bye beige

I really like to wear pink, like really like. I think it has left its barbie reputation many years ago. Or has it? As other like to wear different shades of beige, I love to wear different shades of pink. A little bit more spicy than beige. I hope we can agree on that.

If you happen to be a party person (yes like me!) a knitted crop top is a great choice. It’s definately less naked than a regular crop top. Or maybe it isn’t? Well, at least it’s warmer and at least I feel a little bit more dressed since it’s knitted. But the amount of skin one shows is probably the same.

I only have one rule when getting dressed, comfort is king. And queen. So, if knitting is an option I will go for it.
