The last time I wore a crop top was in high school. I never thought I would put one back on again in my 30s! Why it works this time around is because the crop is mixed with a higher waist. Depending on your weapon of choice (er…I mean bottoms of choice), the top can go glam or casual. I chose to go for a sporty look and paired the top and shoes with a faux leather skirt. By going with all black, it creates a monochrome effect making the sneakers look more sophisticated. This is a combination I wouldn’t normally put together if I didn’t have the shoe constraint, but I loved the outcome. As a bonus, it makes getting around town really comfortable!
