How to Wear a Crop Top | The Right Way

by Katie Manwaring August 26, 2013

Over the past year crop tops have made a major comeback and it doesn't look like they are going away anytime soon. While the trend is definitely enticing, (who doesn't want to show a little skin in summer's heat?) it's one where it's easy for your look to go totally wrong. Baring a little midriff is cute in the right circumstances and can be done in a completely tasteful way, however showing too much skin can take your outfit South. To give you some inspiration when styling your own crop tops we pulled together four of a our favorite midriff-baring looks.


High Waisted Skirt

If your crop top is skimpy, try pairing it was a high waisted midi or maxi skirt - this way you only show a little bit of midriff. Still want to cover up a little more? Top off your look with a blazer in a fun color. 





To take attention away from the skin you're showing, choose a crop top that's embellished. Whether it's a bow, jewels, textured pattern or lace - eyes will be on your cute top. 



Wide Leg Pants

Another great way to style a crop top is with a pair of high waisted, wide leg pants. The cut of the pants along with the crop top lengthens the body and gives the illusion of taller height.






Want to make a statement? Wearing a matching patterned crop top and bottom is a fashion-forward way to wear the trend and bare some skin.

How to: Remington Silk Ceramic Heated Clip Setter

by Katie Manwaring May 20, 2013

Hey all! Katie from Katie's Bliss here to show you how I use the Remington Silk Ceramic Heated Clip Setter before getting ready to head out for my day. Prior to doing my makeup or getting dressed, I set the curlers in my hair and then leave them in while I continue my morning routine. When they've completely cooled I pull them out, style my hair with my fingers and add in a little hairspray. To see just how I use these hot rollers check out my tutorial!
