As I already mentioned (here), cropped tops are my absolute favorite trend for SS season. The many different ways you can style it makes it quite practical,because you can combine it with all bottoms you can think of. My favorite is when the top is the same pattern as the bottom (like here or here).
If you are not comfortable with too cropped situation, there is always belly-button-length version. Plus don't loath to throw over a blazer when the occasion (or weather) is asking for it. Speaking about occasions, the cropped top is my top pick wherever I go: lunch with friends, night out, when I am running around the town, beach (well not quite yet, but I can't wait for that)... I like to mix it with mini/maxi skirt or just with a pair of jeans.
How about you? Do you like cropped tops? How do you style them?
