Three years ago, before my life in Cali and the birth of my blog, I never would have imagined myself walking the streets of San Francisco in a sheer crop top! Nothing sheer, or cropped for that matter. From the words of Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashions Fade, Style is Eternal.” I have always been a trendy gal, but living the California dream has diversified my sense of style. Sheer and cropped does not have to be racy. In fact, it can be quite elegant (as seen here). Today I am going to teach you how to wear a sheer crop top and feel confident and chic while doing it!
High Waisted Bottoms
I would not be caught dead in a crop top without high waisted bottoms. Truthfully, I am very modest and feel the most comfortable when my midriff is covered. If you can relate, the easiest way to dress a crop top is by pairing it with high waisted bottoms. Whether in the form of shorts, pants, or a skirt, they will all get the job done. Style Tip: “High waisted” means different things to different retailers. Before venturing out for the perfect coordinate, pack the shirt in your purse.
Top it Off
Now that you have the whole cropped thing figured out, if you are feeling uneasy about the sheer fabric, begin with a lace bralette. If you can find one the same color as the top, that is ideal, but nude will also work. After trying many, this convertible bralette from Macy’s is my all-time favorite. If your admirers can see what’s under there, you might as well make it something pretty to look at! For added coverage, top off your ensemble with a vest or cape. Slowly but surely working fall pieces into my looks, I topped this outfit off with a fur vest.
I’ve said it once and I am saying it again, feminine details make all the difference. Pearls are my go-to but pops of pink or a dainty purse will all have the same affect. I chose the latter, and rocked a turquoise Chanel bag. Now do you believe me when I say, sheer and cropped do not have to be racy?!
