Top It Off- Styling a Cropped Top with High Rise Jeans


Crop tops don’t have to be something you avoid.  I’m sharing how I would style a cropped blouse.

Styling a Crop Top with Your High-Rise Jeans

You don’t have to think of crop tops as a teeny-bopper garment, but it is good to know how to wear such a top.

I have over the past year bought a few pairs of high rise jeans, these are considered Extra- High waisted, slightly above my belly button. I am long-waisted, so if you are not long waisted, you may just want to try a high-waisted version.

Old Navy is having a 30% off sale, so you might want to pick up jeans with this discount.

Purchasing this new with tags striped draped top on Poshmark, this & other Stories, looked to be the perfect length with my jeans. One way to make sure, however is always asking for the length to be measured if you go for a crop top.

Crop tops don’t have to be the fitted type you might see at Target, with the Wild Fable brand. This top, from Mango, is a boxier crop top that may just end at the top of your jeans.

What’s wonderful is not having to tuck the shirt in, just meeting at the top of the jeans. As, a more conservative look, you can choose a longer crop top that just grazes the top of your jeans. Sometimes a button down might seem bulky, so this is one way to avoid this.

The drape of this top caught my eye, as did the structure. Since there are quite a few variations of crop tops, they are not all fitted. For me, I do prefer a tailored version, depending on the bottom.

Although my top is not available, I love this one as an option. The blue striped shirt with the structured style would be wonderful with this look as well. It comes in black, white and other colors as well. This cropped shirt is such a great stylish option with higher rise pants or jeans. Very smart! Comes in other colorways.

My last look is put together, but casual. I changed out my strappy sandals for my Superga espadrille sneakers and added a trench. Remember how I told you, you can wear a trench coat over sweat pants and it elevates the look regardless .

May Already?

I can’t believe it is May 1st! Spring is flying by, and we have already been out quite a few times. We went to a place called Barrel and Fork over the weekend for Hubby’s month long celebration, and we enjoyed brunch and a brewery visit with my brother and sis in law on Saturday. I love sitting al fresco, and the doggies joined us as well. My boy, Gibson, when we near our destination, lets out little squeals of excitement! This week I will be going to use a gift card I received for my Birthday last year, to go with my Sis in law to get a facial. It will be a nice treat!

I hope you are off to a great start this May day.

Have you tried a crop top styled with high rise trousers or denim?

    I just received some extra high waisted jeans from Old Navy. Bought the balloon style a la 1990s!! Love them. Had come across a picture of me wearing a pair ‘back in the day’ and liked the silhouette so looked for a new pair.

    There is just something fresh and cool about blue and white stripes. Love the interest at your tiny waist from the cropped top. And that blue bag. Gorgeous accessory.

    This is what I say all the time. Just because it’s called cropped doesn’t mean you have to show off your midriff. It’s nice not to have to worry about tucking in the top or that it’s too long,

    This is a beautiful look that would look perfect for a vacation. I love the shades of blue.

    I really like this particular crop top. I think I have 3 crop tops: I like wearing them with high waisted bottoms and also over a dress!

    I love this mostly blue outfit. A very nice vibe. Isn’t it great when the pups get to go? Valentino loves it. He’s very disappointed if he doesn’t get to go.
