I think this blouse is the closest thing I own to a crop-top.
The crop-top is one of those trends that’s coming back around that I can really only observe with fascination and curiosity. I’ve seen folks wear them and look amaaazing (see: 1 / 2 / 3 ), but I still feel most comfortable admiring them on other people, ya know? I’m still learning which areas of skin I feel confident in exposing and which ones make me feel shaky and anxious.
I also have extra weirdness with them because as a long-torsoed person I have historically had a hard time finding long-enough shirts anyway, and there’s that annoying diamond of lower-back skin that always and forever will become exposed when I bend over. No. Matter. What.
So, y’know, it’s a thing.
I enjoy admiring them on other people, though! I love the variety of styles I’ve seen them come up in–sweet and romantic, tough and edgy, polished and chic. Surprisingly versatile, although perhaps not office-friendly.
So how do you feel about crop-tops, huh? Tell me! Teeeeelllll meeeeeeeee.
