aeropostale crop top, how to wear a crop top, summer outfit crop top, crop top summer, black and white outfit Yes indeed, I am wearing a crop top. I’m a bit surprised myself. It’s something that I’ve wanted to try, but let’s face it- crop tops are not for everyone. However, I really liked this open knit version with a flyaway back when I spotted it online, so I thought I’d give it a go!

aeropostale crop top, how to wear a crop top, summer outfit crop top, crop top summer To ease into this trend, I thought I would start with one that’s slightly longer than your typical crop top- this one hits me right at the belly button. The flyaway back is what really sold me on this top. I wore a little black bandeau underneath so that you can’t see my bra and paired it with my most comfortable black jeans. I was running out the door and forgot to put on jewelry, but I did get a chance to accessorize with a red lip.

I only wore them for a bit yesterday so I can’t fully comment on how comfortable they are yet, but I’ll probably wear them to work this week and really test them out. If they do turn out to be comfy, then I’ll be happy to check off one box on my summer shoe shopping list.

flyaway back, crop top, summer top open back What did you guys get up to this weekend? It was a good one for me. I had a bit of a movie marathon and watched Blue is the Warmest Color, When Harry Met Sally, and How to Marry a Millionaire. I also went with my friend Liza to a karaoke bar on Saturday night. This was different from my usual karaoke experience. Typically the group I go with gets a private room, but this time it was public and I noticed that a lot of people who sang were really good. You could tell that some of there were regulars and came to show off their skills. I decided to spare everyone the pain of my off-key voice, but I did enjoy watching and observing the other people there.

Tell me: Would you wear a crop top?

  • I love the idea of a fly away top, and I think you can totally pull off this crop!
    None for me though, please!

    Chic on the Cheap

  • I love the sandal/flats!! They are so great for summer. Fly away tops are so fun, you look great!

    • Thank you Natalie! I’m pleased about my new summer shoes :)

  • sartorialsidelines

    You are pulling off that top perfectly (crop tops scare the bejesus out of me but you make it look so easy).

    Courtney ~ Sartorial Sidelines

    • Thank you Courtney! Actually, they scare me too and I’m still not sure I’m entirely comfortable in this one!

  • Looks like I’ll have to take a trip to American Eagle because I’ve completely worn out my black Jessica Simpson high-rise jeggings. I don’t know how I feel about crop tops…you’re right. They’re not for everyone, but this one really suits you. It’s not flashy and outrageous like so many crop tops are.

    • I have three pairs of American Eagle jeggings and I find all of them super comfortable. Thank you Emily! The two crop tops that I bought are black and white- figured I’d keep it simple, which is more my style.

  • Jenmarie

    You look cute and I’ve been seeing those sandals everywhere! My friend actually just got a pair. I like how glitzy they are. I don’t know if they’d be super comfortable for me though because they aren’t opened-toed.

    • Thank you Jenmarie! So far they seem to be comfortable, although I do wish the ankle strap could be a little bit tighter.

  • my weekend was spent eating. haha. Sounds silly doesn’t it? But, we ended up going out for food more than I thought but, it was well enjoyed! =)

    I have not yet ventured to the crop top territory. I was thisclose to purchasing one several weeks ago but, then backed out! haha. I want to try it but I’ll have to get that confidence up!


    • Not at all- eating delicious foods is a great way to spend a weekend! :) Same here- I’d been thinking about getting a crop top for a while before I got these. I’m still not sure how I feel about them but I’m willing to keep trying!

  • You definitely styled this crop top perfectly! As you may know, I finally had my bets friend’s baby shower and it was so much fun, really enjoyed it, and on Sunday I stayed at home and watched a Masterchef marathon, love that show :)

    • Thank you Maru! It sounds like you had a really good weekend :)

  • You picked the perfect crop tip for yourself Nnenna! And those studded sandals are fabulous!

    Rowena @ rolala loves

    • Thanks so much Rowena!

  • That top!! I’m not a fan of tight crop tops, but I love this! You styled it to perfection!

  • that outfit is perfect one for summer! love the details in the top & sandals. when harry met sally is so good isn’t it? :-)

    Katrina Sophia Blog

    • Thank you! Yes, when Harry Met Sally was really cute. I can’t believe I hadn’t seen it before!

  • the crop top looks great on you! and it goes perfectly with your sandals!

  • Jessica

    That top looks great on you. I love the back of your top and your sandals.

  • Love this outfit Nnenna! So perfect for this summer weather! That shirt is such a great find. I have still not tried out a crop top, a little nervous haha. But I like your idea of going with a bit of a longer version first to transition into, maybe I will have to try that.

    • Thanks so much Nan! Yes, this one’s not super cropped and my higher-waisted jeggings, I’m only showing a bit of skin (except in the back, of course ;)

  • I have a crop top, but I always pair it with something high-waisted. Wouldn’t want to do the world a discourtesy by showing off my flab!

    Haha, yeh karaoke suddenly gets super competitive when it’s not private! I went to rockaoke once and I sang Teenage Dirtbag with a live rock band and it was soo thrilling but incredibly scary!

    Love the open back of this top!

    Saskia /

    • Yeah, I feel better pairing mine with something high-waisted too. I don’t want to show so so much!

      Singing karaoke with a live rock band sounds really cool! I think I’d be way too chicken to do it, but I can imagine that the experience is amazing :)

  • Looks great on you, Nnenna! Perfect for summer! And btw, your hair look ahhmazing!

    • Aww, thank you Jessica! I’ve actually attempting to actually style my hair for once and I’ve been curling it a bit- thank you for noticing :)

  • What a great look! Love that crop top!

  • Yey! Welcome to the crop top group hehe love the look. Smart idea wearing the bandeau top underneath. I don’t like showing my bra either. Super cute shoes :)

    • Haha, thank you! Yah, I definitely wanted to hide my bra. Maybe if I was wearing to this to the beach, I’d just wear my bikini top, but for regular wear I did want to be more covered up :)
