Crop Tops + Wide-Leg Pants

Crop Tops + Wide-Leg Pants

Spring, Crop Tops + Wide Leg Pants

With Spring comes many different wardrobe options like floral dresses, sandals, rompers, but how soon many of us forget about crop tops and wide-leg pants too. I love that wide-leg pants are a transitional wardrobe piece that can be worn throughout various seasons from fall to winter on to spring. AND, they are perfect for the very reason I paired them with this crop top. I’ll get to that in a minute. 

Remember these high waist wide-leg pants from LA Style Fashion Week? I just can’t get enough of them so I styled them a little more casually this time around. Especially after finding this super cute bell sleeve crop top at Zizibeh, a local women’s clothing store in Van Nuys, California (you can find a lot of great fashionable and reasonably priced clothing in local stores and boutiques in your area), unsure of what I was going to collaborate them with soon as I brought them home these wide-leg pants that I got from Heavenly Couture (yes, my go to spot!) were the first on my mind.

The wide-leg pants came to mind for many different reasons. For me the volume on the top and bottom seemed well balanced in harmony, hence the bell sleeves and the wide-leg as well as the colors coordinated perfectly. One other thing that stuck out to me was the fact that, while I really do think crop tops are cu-yute, I don’t think they are for me. Reason being, I don’t like to show bare midriff – but, I changed all that to make it cater to me and my style.

How I made it cater to my style was by wearing these high waist pants to minimize that amount of bare midriff I would show. The high waist are perfect for crop tops if you want less exposure of your mid-section. Another way would be to wear a nude, but thin under shirt for less exposure. My feeling is, if you want to wear something then wear it in ways that’ll make it work for you.

The accessories (cat eye sunglasses, burnt orange clutch purse, floral block heels, long layer beaded multi-strand necklace and beaded drop earrings) were enhancers to glamify the look even further.

    Pentene,

    I love this orange crop top–the scallop folds and bell sleeves make it so classy. A perfect pairing with the wide pants!

    I have not worn a crop top since the 90’s when I was younger and had a six-pack to show off–hehe. You have now inspired me to try those again – in a more suffocated manner.

    Love your shades as well–need something like those.

    Xoxo,
    Marieta
