The Statement Crop Top for Summer

I'm a big crop top lover. A good crop top and a pair of high waisted jeans are one of my favourite summertime looks. So when I spotted this bell-sleeved crop top on SheIn (it's only $17!!), I knew I had to add it to my crop top collection! I'm particularly a fan of this top because of the statement bell sleeves, and the the tied waist. It's the details that make this affordable piece a stand-out.

I'm definitely guilty of being a dress person. I often struggle to shop for tops (even though I love crop tops). For one thing, it's obviously easier to style a dress - one item - versus a top and pants. So I find that I usually tend towards shopping the dress department versus shirts. But...I've been making a concerted effort to shop for shirts lately, and I'm finally starting to develop a larger selection of tops in my wardrobe. This season, because bell sleeves have been such a big trend, I've been keeping my attention focused on tops with that feature. That's about as narrow as I'll go, in terms of shopping goals. I don't like to get too narrow, in terms of colour, etc, because I find it just gets too difficult to find something so exact. Just go in with a couple of points in mind, and then see what pleasantly surprises you!

One fashion rule I've always followed is about balancing out the amount of skin I show in an outfit. If I'm wearing something short, I opt to wear something more conservative on top, and vice versa; if I'm wearing a crop top, I prefer to go with pants, rather than shorts. This is totally a personal choice - it's just what feels most comfortable for me. But if you're feeling a bit unsure about rocking a crop top, then a pair of high waisted pants is probably a safe bet.

Do you have a fashion rule you've always stood by?
