Crop away.

I am back with yet another post. These days Sundays are my favourite because I finally get to relax, pamper myself with a long shower, and do my favourite thing in the world: blog. Its amazing to see how much you love something especially when you're deprived of it so much. In my case, I hardly ever get time on weekdays anymore hence I have to schedule posts over the weekend for the week. But I try visiting all your blogs and catching up when I can squeeze in some time.

[Happy August to you'll! And a happier friendship day!]

How to style your crop top?

1. First of all don't get the wrong idea, crop tops are not only for people with toned midriffs. Everyone can wear a crop top. 
2. Choose a length for your crop top. Some of them are really short while others will reach your jeans. If you're in for some belly showing, go bold and get shorter ones, but always remember the location as you definitely cannot wear it to work etc. 
3. If you are on the heavier side, don't worry because we can still rock our crop tops. Wear them with high waist pants or maybe even layer with a crop top and you'll definitely rock the trend. 
4. Layering in a crop top can be really simple. You can wear it with funky coloured tanks, or maybe even tees with cool quotes. 
5. Crop tops are casual attire and hence go for an arm party or studded bracelets to work the look. Add a long necklace or chunky ones to add some pop depending on the pattern of your crop top. 
6. When you're wearing a crop top you have endless varieties to pair it with. You can wear them with jeans or skirts, shorts or bikinis, depending on your location again. 
7. Another way of working an oversized crop top is to tie it up and give it an edgy effect. 

Where to get your crop tops? 
Frankly here are some of the places I've spotted best crop tops. 
American Apparel (variety in colour and type), Zara, Tibetean market (Bangalore- funky patterns). 
These days crop tops are in fashion and you might even get them at places like Westside, Lifestyle and Pantaloons. Try your hand at it!
