cropping up

The crop top has been cropping up everywhere these days.. see what I did there ;)) cropping up 0469

I recently got a pair of pants from Missguided (post coming soon), and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality.

I looked around on their site, and a lot of the looks are from the minimalism trend that I've seen around everywhere. This dress, and this one were the inspirations behind my outfit.

I like the matching crop top and skirt combo, like this Nicholas skirt and top, even though it's not black. This Stella McCartney top and pants is a great set too.

As far as black goes, it's not necessary to always get a matching set, black goes together easily.

Alexander Wang wrap skirt (similar here).

The tulip skirt adds a bit of uniqueness to this look; paired with this structured crop top, it puts a new spin on the classic night out getup.

Milly top, matched with a midi skirt is another great look if you don't feel comfortable in such a tiny top.

I made my top from an old tube top i don't wear, which is also a great idea. Very limited sewing skill is necessary, just cut the top, and use a needle and thread to make a blind hem. Blind hemming is a technique where the needle is used to pull up a tiny stitch so the thread isn't seen on the face of the garment. (more here)

Jewelry: Gold choker, more found here, and here. Thinner gold chain, found here.

Furry bucket bag, found here. Similar fur bag here, and an animal-free version by Stella McCartney.

I thought mules would be great shoes here, especially these from Tom Ford. These Vince shoes are also very minimal and chic. Similar Rebecca Minkoff, and Joie wedge mules.


Have a great weekend everybody!
