New York winters can be bone chilling. And for this season, or at least to I’ve heard from many residents, this winter season has been the worst in a long time. So what does a southern girl like me do when the need to throw on a good crop top to hang out or go about the day? Layer up. Yes! Crop top season is year round for me as I love the short shirts and different variations of showing off the belly in a cute top.
Luckily for me, not all crop tops are fit for the Spring and Summer. There are cut off sweat shirts, turtle necks, and even those made with thicker material to help keep me warm and allow me to get my crop top fix.
Another way for me to stay warm in a crop is to layer up. Two crop tops in one, like my cut off hoodie. How to layer? Throw on a crop sweater to keep the look going and keep the cold and flu germs from creeping in.
A night out on the town during the winter doesn’t mean you have to stay within the big sweater limits. That’s when I throw on a crop turtle neck number with a heavy coat to keep the cold air from seeping in. Yea there may be a breeze here and there but it’s worth the look…Well, to me it is!
Sometimes, I allow my bottoms to make up for the bare skin space that my top doesn’t cover. A nice pair of high waist jeans, leggings, or pants can keep a crop look while blocking the cold. Accomplishing two missions in one!
I’m glad that clothing designers understand the importance of my “Crop Top Season”. Creating styles fit for the cold. So never feel as if it’ too cold for a crop. Put it on, layer up, and enjoy the style!
Comment Below. What's your fav Spring/Summer piece that you HAVE to wear in the Winter?
The Blakk Dahlia (E. Alexcina Brown) is a New York City author/blogger from Macon, GA. Recently, she released the book series, the Heartbreak Diaries outlining different perspectives of heartbreak. The Dahlia Diaries is a lifestyle blog penned by The Blakk Dahlia, sharing her story in NYC along with life lessons and tips she's learned in her journey.
So I’m just scrolling through the internet minding my business and I come across this lovely look. Being an ultimate lover of crop tops and looks, I was immediately drawn to this #OOTD from Kendall Jenner. It was written that this outfit was worn at her most recent birthday shindig. What a great way to celebrate a new year in life than with a crop top. A sexy-simple but chic crop with over-sized ripped jeans showing the contrast of comfy but sexy. And to top it off, these YSL boots (valued at $10,000) to give a splash of style. Boots that seems like everyone has but me. LOL L Well, not everyone but I would love a pair. Oh how I wish to be a trust fund baby but I digress.
Indeed I’d try to recreate it and make it my own. Decking it out with my fav pair of DD’s Discount, Forever 21, or Express heels ;).
