A question we get a lot from customers is whether or not they’re “too old” to wear a certain trend or style? And while our answer is always a resolute ‘nope, never, no’ we get that to be confident in what you’re wearing, you have to comfortable with it first. So we carried out an in-depth investigation into crop tops that look good whatever age-bracket you tick on your tax form. And by investigation, we obviously mean we asked 6-8 people in the office.
The one that’s on literally everyone right now
The puff sleeve crop top has been the standout trend of SS19, and while you might feel a little exposed teaming it with denim short-shorts, a classic high waisted jean or satin midi skirt will instantly give it a more grown-up feel without losing the cool factor.
The one for food-based plans
When you reach the stage in life where the question “where to go for pre-drinks?” becomes “Where to go for dinner?” the outfits require a bit more consideration. Mainly: Can i have dessert without bursting out of this? That’s why we love a peplum: built-in roof for your food babies.
The one that’s cute for holidays
OK, a lemon crop top in cherry print? Seems a write-off for anyone over 6 and a half, no? That’s what we thought, until we saw this little cutie. Teamed with a wide leg white trouser and some statement earrings, it suddenly becomes très élégant. Consider us converted.
Ditto, this one…
And from 9 to wine?
Desk-friendly and crop to aren’t natural BFFs, but we’ve found two that mean business, work overtime as a ‘good for the pub’ option come 5pm.
