Layer Your Crop Top With These Easy Celebrity Ideas

While the icy sidewalks and arctic temperatures of the past few weeks may have left you curled up in your wooly knits, the arrival of March means that crop tops are officially de rigueur once again. As it’s currently late winter, it’s probably not a good sartorial move to sport a crop top with a fluttering bohemian skirt. However, embracing your crop top with an array of stealthy and chic layers can help you transition your wardrobe between the seasons. From Dakota Johnson to Vanessa Hudgens, here are a few shining celebrity examples to help you get the look now.

Recently, the 26-year-old How to Be Single star proved that a basic white crop top can easily be elevated into a classic wardrobe staple. She styled her off-the-shoulder white crop top with a funky black leather jacket for a contrasting effect. Meanwhile, Johnson’s high-waisted slouchy black trousers complement the jacket and bring a touch of coverage to her entire look. For the ultimate Hollywood vibe, we recommend styling an inspired outfit with a pair of oversized dark sunglasses.

For a hint of warmth, try taking your cues from Emily Ratajkowski’s wearable take on this typically sexy trend. Although crop tops are a common sight for a night out, we’re liking the 24-year-old model and actress’ daytime-appropriate cropped burgundy sweater. The enriched hue flatters her beige trench coat, rolled-up grey straight denim and tan ankle boots. Add funky eyeglasses, practice your camera-ready pout and prepare to strut the streets in style!

If you’re ready to experiment with patterns, take note of the gorgeous 27-year-old actress’ classic black and white Breton striped top. The subtly cropped length and high neckline keep the style looking fairly casual and comfortable. For a timeless and chic ensemble, try accessorizing your top with a long camel-coloured wool coat, loose black trousers and a contrasting suede mini bag. After all, it only takes flawless tailored outerwear and a classic accessory to transform a basic cotton crop top into a Parisienne inspired ensemble.
