A FRESH CROP
In recent seasons, the crop top has been presented by designers as a sporty proposition. But this is a piece that works as well for a look that’s equal parts ladylike and girlish. Forget about late ’90s pop tart connotations; the new crop top styling can be worn to midday brunch or a cool downtown rave. The key is to find a top that isn’t too abbreviated and to balance it with a demure, high-waisted bottom, showing only the tiniest hint of skin slightly above the midriff. Work the look with flat loafers for a casually tomboyish take.
