Nothing delights more than a super-trendy item purchased on megasale. Over the weekend, I scored this Sparkle & Fade velvet cross-backed crop top for only $5 at an Urban Outfitters sale rack.
This past summer, plenty of celebs got croppy rocking the ’90s-era trend in bright florals and rich textures with high-waisted pants and fitted skirts of varying length. The question now is how will I rock my crop without it looking like a throwback gone wrong? I adore some butterfly clips and Jagged Little Pill-era Alanis. I just don’t want to be stuck looking like I’m en route to her show in 1995. Suggestions? I’m thinking either faux leather mini-skirt or mid-length fitted skirt for a more conservative look. After all, isn’t “cropped top” just a polite way of saying “belly shirt”?
