Boxy and ladylike, belted at the waist, or sexy midriff-baring, there’s no doubt, fashion right now is all about the crop top. We haven’t seen this trend since the 90’s, kudos to an explosive comeback.

It appears that some applaud the crop top and the versatility it will bring to your closet. However, there’s also a strong aversion to showing the midsection in any manner. Super short or elongated, I’m a fan.

I don’t subscribe to the notion,” if you wore it the first time around… don’t even think about wearing it again”.  That way of thinking is so our mother’s time. I don’t believe in ageism either. Not all, but most trends can be worn at any age. Remember a few key points, know your body, take note of fabrication and dress appropriately to where you’re going.

This past Sunday, while our Christian friends were celebrating Easter with family and loved ones, my Jew-Crew decided to have brunch on a friends rooftop. For this casual gathering, I pulled out my belted crop top to pair with boyfriend jeans. For modesty, I topped the look off with a driving coat.
