I wore a crop top to work.
And I don’t work in the fashion industry - I work in good ‘ol corporate America. So what would possess this girl to do something so scandalous?
THIS TOP, that’s what.
I had made a challenge to myself to find a crop top that I could wear to work and eureka! I found the perrrfecccct one at Anthom. But wearing a crop top to work is no small fete and must be done with the UTMOST discretion.
So I give to you…
HOW TO WEAR A CROP TOP TO WORK
Pair With a High-Waisted Skirt or Pants
I paired this top with a high-waisted pencil skirt, but I would LOVE to rock this with a pair of wide-legged white trousers. DO NOT wear this with your Britney Spears low-rise jeans. No no no no no.
Wear a Conservative Silhouette
Choose a top that has a higher neckline or opt for a button-up like I did. Where you’re missing fabric at the bottom you’ll want to make up elsewhere.
Showing off your toned tummy at work is never appropriate, so be aware of shirt movement. The top I’m wearing wasn’t a problem at all, even though I showed a teensy bit of tummy stretching during my lunch break.
Work Appropriate Patterns
Please don’t think I’m saying to wear your sunflower crop top you wore to coachella. DO NOT DO THAT. Instead, opt for simple patterns and neutral colors. Save your flower-child style for the festivals.
If you’re still uncomfortable with the idea, take baby steps. Wear a cami underneath the crop top or throw a blazer on. I always feel that comfort is key, so if you’re not ready to take the full plunge, work your way up to it.
