I love the crop top trend. But not too short. I'm not talking Lady Gaga showing off her underboob, I'm Lady Gaga circa 2103 in a *longer* crop top and loose trousers.
I have a short torso so finding shirts that I like and fit me right is a nightmare (*slight exaggeration). Wearing a pair of high-waisted bottoms and a 'classy crop' brings me J-O-Y. I'm about to do a closet purge today and all the tops that cut me off at a 'weird spot' aren't going to make the cut. Naturally, knowing that my closet is about to be emptier, I'm cruising Pinterest for outfit inspiration asking myself what I actually want to wear every day vs. filling my closet with trending pieces I never end up wearing. Classy cropped tops (yes, they are a thing) are catching my eye.
So why a blog post on this CK cropped tank & tee? Because Calvin Klein is classic. They're the only brand who's name I'm willing to broadcast around my torso, why? Unknown. Maybe because Marky Mark and Beckham also wear it wrapped around their chiseled torsos, I'll ponder that today.
Both tank and tee are only available at Urban Outfitters, good news is you can order both online, whew. Pair them with high-rise leggings from lululemon to/during/from your workouts and casually or dressed up with low slung baggies or a high-waisted denim. While on the UO site, check out their denim, I have a few pairs of BDG high-rise styles and a pair of CK ripped boyfriends that I love.
