I can remember the first time I wore a cropped top. It was the early 90’s and the high school I attended made us wear uniforms – kilts, polos, cardigans – the standard. Every once in a while we’d have a “free dress” day and the entire student body would rejoice. I was about 12 years old, and overalls were the look du jour. I snagged a crop top and proudly wore it to school underneath my oversized overalls and felt like the coolest kid in the world.

My parents, as you can imagine, were not so thrilled.

Fast forward 20 years (omg I know), and I’m revisiting them again in the boldest way possible – paired with loose high-waisted trousers. There’s something empowering about wearing it now. If you’re intimidated by cropped tops, don’t be! There’s a pairing that will work for you – whether it’s high-waisted pants or a skirt or even a maxi skirt – don’t be scared. Fashion is about transformation, about empowerment… wear what makes you feel fabulous!
