A while back I came across a photo of a girl wearing a black long sleeve crop top with a full skirt. For some reason I didn't think to save or pin it, but it's a look I kept in mind. I loved it. It completely changed the way I thought about crop tops. In my mind they were another bad '90s trend that I was happy to leave in the past. I know I was just a kid then, but I really was not a fan of '90s style. It was just so awkward. I certainly didn't think that I would be wearing a crop top myself as an adult, but the more polished update grew on me and I had to try it. 

I decided to keep things simple with a black top and white high waisted skirt. I've had this skirt in my closet for years but never found quite the right top to pair with it. Since it's fitted until the point where it flares out, I felt that you could always see the lines from longer tops right through it. A cropped top seems to be just the right match for it, no lines and it makes things a little more interesting. I think this is going to be one of those date night outfits I repeat quite often. 

Are you on board with this cropped trend?
