How to Wear

The Crop Top

Go short! The crop top goes from sporty to elegant. We show you how.

  • The midriff bearing attire made its presence felt on the runway in its many variations this season. From the button-down art print cropped shirt version seen at Chanel, the embellished Sanchita one back home, to the simple boxy tee crop top at Missoni and the mosaic printed ones at Dev r Nil – the crop top is everywhere. At Nachiket Barve we even saw the crop top undergo his signature appliqué additions. Paired with a pencil skirt, the crop top can go Parisian chic. This itsy-bitsy outfit is perfect for beating the summer heat.

    Day: Give the crop top a sporty-cool update with ripped jeans and quirky flats. Add on an ear cuff and a minimal silver cuff.
