With the spring 2015 runways marking a return to basics, it’s the ethereal whites to have quickly regained their supremacy as colour of choice for the warm season. As a result, the crop tops borrowed the white hue’s fresh attitude and perfected it with plenty of sheerness for a modern look that comes across as both innocent and sexy, clean and daring. Styled with flats and skirts hitting barely above the knee, the white and sheer crop tops are meant to showcase only the amount of skin you’re comfortable with.
The boxy crop top.
You might remember the boxy crop top for being in last year, but it’s safe to say that its revised versions for 2015 look equally strong, as successfully proved by Narciso Rodrigues and Basharatyan. Dipped in clean, monochromatic tones and edged up with bold blocks of colour, the boxy crop top in both its sleeveless and long-sleeved renditions, is set to bring forward only the purest form of sophistication.
The soft & romantic crop top.
As if to balance things out and make up for the large amount of skin exposed, the soft and romantic crop tops, cut in delicate lace and ethereal fabrics are perhaps the most feminine interpretations of the trend to have walked the spring / summer ’14 runways. Lovely and charming, they look best as paired to high-waist skirts, chic up-do’s and no accessories other than a sleek pair of sandals.
The minimalist crop top.
You simply can’t go wrong in choosing any of the crop and/or tube top’s more minimalist of the 2015 renditions. As seen at both Krizia and Hache, a minimalist crop top, or tube top allows you to build a myriad of gorgeous outfits around them. Throw over a sheer jacket and you’re instantly cooler, add a high-waist skirt and a pair of pointy flats and be sure you’re gonna look super-stylish.
The chic crop top ensemble.
This season’s novelty factor brought forward the chic crop top as part of a series of utterly feminine ensembles. Incorporated in strong deux-pieces, the short-sleeved crop top came adorned with flashy zippers and improved with asymmetrical lining, exposing just a hint of a perfectly toned midriff.
