But how to style crop tops in the winter – when we want to just wear a wool jacket over skinny jeans and call it a day!! How to look stylish without being cold? Don’t worry – it’s possible with just a bit of planning. And yes, you CAN pull it off!


How to Style Crop Tops in Winter | What to Wear with Crop Tops

1Over a Long Lace Cami

I love camisoles and body briefers for the winter. They’re a great way to add a basic and comfortable layer under a stylish sweater or cardigan. For layering under crop tops, choose a cami that’s long but not too long, because it shouldn’t look like you’re wearing a negligee underneath. Ideally it should end just below the hip. You can also use a regular cami if you don’t wanna show any skin!

2Under or Over a Lace Top

Aren’t lace tops so lovely and romantic? If you have a skin-tight lace top, wear a loose trendy black crop top over it, preferably in a contrasting color! If you have a loose lace top, wear a bralet or skinny crop top under it! Pair it with skinny jeans or a skirt! You can tuck the lace top inside your jeans or let it out.

Sheer button-down shirts and sheer jackets are so trendy right now! If you have a sleeveless sheer shirt, wear a crop jumper or sweatshirt over it in a contrasting color! If you have a sleeved shirt, you can choose to wear a sleeveless crop top (like a vest) or a crop sweater over it! Wear hoop earrings or a nice statement necklace!

5With a High-Rise Skirt

I love high-rise skirts, especially pencil skirts! They can be so versatile, and take a look from office to party! For casual, or workwear, pair a crop top or crop cardigan with your pencil skirt. If you want to wear it for a party, swap the crop top with something sequinned or embellished! Pair it with sheer tights and some nice lace-up pumps!
